Telling Stories

Storytelling matters.

That's why California's 9th Circuit Court of Appeals timed its decision on Prop 8 to coincide with Youngblood's queer brunch. Because the judges knew that the legal future of gay marriage will depend less on their ruling than on the stories we choose to tell ourselves about, well, love.

I'm perpetually delighted, surprised, and moved by the messy, sensitive, wild, and quiet stories I get to hear each week in Youngblood.

So, in that vein -- the vein of messy, particular stories -- I hope you'll check out this bit of storytelling from my non-playwright life as a sometimes rather confused homosexual.
