Alan Rickman: He Made Snape Sexy

This writer came into the queer open mic that I run in San Francisco, with my friend Blythe Baldwin. I’d never met him before and he was new to the mic, he blew us away with this piece. I automatically asked if it had been published? He said no, but that he was interested in getting it published, so I sent it to my friends at The Tusk, and they agreed with me. Quick read, unique, super touching, and ugh, Alan Rickman, we miss you!

CROTCH HEAT, it’s getting hot in here

I’m guest hosting Write Club SF! So of course the title of this month’s show is CROTCH HEAT!

CrotchHeatBanner

I’ve been a fan of this show for a long time, then I had the pleasure of writing for it and competing two or three times, I can’t remember, and it was a blast! 6 writers, go head to head, in a battle with their words! I wrote one of my funniest short stories because of this show and I feel it is a GREAT way to get people to enjoy literary talent, and challenge writers to write new shit!

Now don’t get me wrong, I have actually always loved Valentine’s day, but aaaall my friends hate it, they hate it so much, they freak the f out every year, so in honor of their deep hatred, instead of having the February show be Romance themed, I decided to make the writers explore the themes of doing the deed, going all the way, fornicatin’, sexy time, bumping uglies, gettin’ nasty, because fuck Valentines Day.

Our participating lovers: Julian Shendelman, Na’amen Tilahun, Mandy Hu, Zoe Young, Kay Nilsson and Damian Ledbetter!

3 rounds of 2 writers going head to head over a pair of opposing topics with 7 minutes each—7 MINUTES ONLY—to sway the crowd.

The bouts:

FIST vs. FINGER,

SPIT vs. SWALLOW,

TOP vs. BOTTOM. (Because these words are neglected by drugstore love plushes.)

Audience picks the winner. Winner’s charity gets money!

At The Make Out Room 3225 22nd Street in SAN FRANCISCO!

$5-15 Pay what you can
21+ cash bar, ATM available
Doors at 7pm — Show at 8pm
Baby-Makin’ Slow Jamz by 9:30
