Sasha Kleinplatz, a well known Montreal choreographer as well as the magical gaymous creature/ dancer/ choreographer Hana van der Kolk, and my platonic wife and stylist Christine Thorne created a piece specifically for In Your Pocket. This is my first time working with dancers which has been a long term goal/ dream of mine so I am extremely chuffed.

25 Queer Artists Come Together to Create Short Videos On Smart Phones. Curated by the amazing Marcin Wisniewski and Dupuis Christophe. Presented by the RT Collective as part of the Inside Out LGBT Film Festival in association with Videofag.

ALL THIS AND TWO SHOWS IN THE BAY IN JUNE!!!

Queer Prophecies: Future Visioning < click this link to see more about this amazing show curated by the one and only Noelle Duncan

Coral Short and Angela Gabereau (feminist hacker extraordinaire) present you with these multiple versions of the future. We are the mothers of “Future Visions” but everyone who has submitted videos is also an partial parent of this larger dynamic quilt of destinies. We hold the future together all of us with our everyday small actions and big daydreams. We all create our future queer worlds daily, weekly, monthly, yearly. We have released this varied futures from an uncensored open call and are holding multiple visions within our own piece. We gift you the viewer a smorgasbord of queer futures.

This is What I Want is a powerful new festival in San Francisco curated by Tessa Wills and Peter Max Lawrence. I am so happy that the films I made while living in Oakland are returning to where they were created! I made them while doing an artist residency a few years back when I lived there. These babies are now coming home to roost! Lesbian Hand Gestures and Narcissus
