Within a few minutes of meeting me it becomes pretty abundantly clear how obsessed i am with dogs. Dogs have been a really fundamental part of my life, conception of self, spiritual understanding and so much more. No doubt, I am the person I am today because of the dogs who have shared my life. I spent my early teen years training and competing in dog sports, dogs were my entire life, and I lost them when I came out as queer and became homeless. All these years later, dogs remain a foundational part of my daily life and how I relate to the world.
I’m so excited to be the guest curator for January’s Queer Memoir here in NYC themed around Pets! It’s going to be an incredible night witha really diverse group of storytellers (and no not all of them are dog people :p)
January 14th 8pm @ Queers For Economic Justice
Looking forward to seeing you there!
