In art, I aim to (re)tell my untamed, "un-shamed" story of the torturously tragic trials & tribulations that have tentatively turned my thin skin tough again... 

My serendipitously well-timed Saturn Return at TRI-Life Try!UMPH!? might very well have marred & mangled, scratched, scuffed & scarred sanguine scarlet rosy red my reshaped & reconstructed cheeks, chin & smile for a while, since my Quarter-Life CRISIS came crashing to a cataclysmic end... 

Yet, now today, ne'er more may I say I choose to languish & lament over "my last-ditch, last-chance life..."      

As QHereKidSF at TRI-Life, I Try – "UMPH!?" – to triumph; even, if success means switch-hitting and missing a swing... Even, if victory means voicing my voracious fear of forever falling a few flimsy feet forward onto a sky-high shaky string, as nothing quite so ne'er-do-well as one "Fagged-Out Funambule Fog City Freak Show" – vanquished in damned near doomsday downfall by disease & disfigurement... 

Rather, I'd like to step sure-footed onto a straight as steel, wrought-iron rope to prance and dance in delighted acrobatics. There! Many miles high above the sky – Where my mind-flux, my mayhem, and my moribund monstrosity matter no more... 

There! Where I am able to impart my many myriad life lessons learnt onto those often ill-begotten & forgotten fag-friendly few, who too are left to lead ill-fated, infandous & unjust lives of illness, injury, disease, and – damned, if it be so!! – disfigurement; likewise, then akin to me: +MATTHEWBLANCHARD (@QHereKidSF)!! 

OH! To the brave, emboldened high-wire hopefuls, who dare a single step onto my sky-high shaky string – Strength in Numbers!! Hold the net for he who fumbles... YET! Fear not thus for this "Fagged-Out Funambule Fog City Freak Show," as he falls a few steps forward... 

In faith of friendship, past, present & surely set to come...

A PERVASIVE PANDEMIC : A.I.D.S. BLEEDS THRU THE LINES 
OF COLOR, CREED AND CAPITULATES TO NO ONE, SAVE ITS 
POSITIVELY AWARE AND PREVENTION-MINDED SURVIVORS. 
– Matthew B. |@QHereKidSF(b.1979) 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Since waking from death and after staring straight in the face of his own ubiquitously brutish and unbecoming ugliness, MATTHEW D. BLANCHARD has endeavored to reclaim, through external manifestations of creative self-expression, the full-measured immensity of his own innately internal, yet outwardly actualized 'beauty beguiled, BeGODS!' 
    Consequently, his recent corpus of creative works in self-expression and portraiture -- be they on stage, on screen; or likewise, in print!? -- is meant to further foment our shared recognition and rejoicing in the serendipitous resplendence of his 'beyond-all-odds' auspicious survival. 
    Through brazenly unafraid struggles together, let us pray we find solace in the peaceful reflections staring back at us from there, where the ferocious face of trepidation, contempt, and self-loathing very well once could have, should have been! 

"…Faced with the idea of suicide, the logical out for those for whom 'it' has not gotten better, Blanchard writes: 
    'Perhaps, in full appreciation of remaining alive despite disease and disfigurement after so many near-miss forays toward death, I am convinced of my extraordinary good fortune and blessings. Or, maybe, all that’s keeping me alive today is gut-wrenching gay boy guilt.' 
    The various essays of this book—many of which attain the level of theatrical monologue, if not arias—reveal the full range of emotional colors of the rainbow flag, guilt, sorrow, and a sense of abandonment chief among them. 
    And yet as noted by Blanchard, there is a sense of good fortune always, of blessings abounding." 
    – Vinton Rafe McCabe, literary critic-at-large (New York Journal of Books, 31 Jan 2013 ; cf. http://bit.ly/SoAfraidNYJB ; etc.).

+Daniel Cardone, Director of "CONSTRUCT" -- feat. as the ninth film in +The HIV Story Project Production of STILL AROUND (Outcast Films: USA 2011, 82 mins.), in which +MATTHEW BLANCHARD proudly contributed his personal/creative voice as Writer/Narrator & Lead Protagonist -- has devoted much of the past two years towards the writing, film production and editing of his new feature-length cinematic collaboration with co-producer, +Marc Smolowitz : a film recounting the diverse stories of older HIV/AIDS-positive gay men who have chosen to seek solace and sanctuary in the desert paradise of the American South West, entitled "DESERT MIGRATION."

Knowing Daniel Cardone well and having had the distinct honor and privilege of working with him in close collaboration on the production of our short film: "CONSTRUCT," I can attest with great confidence that "DESERT MIGRATION" should promise to be as provocatively riveting a spectacle of film, as it should be just as likely a contemplative and challenge work of cultural criticism and examination, chocked full of numerous gems of masterful cinematic techniques and stylings.

Daniel CARDONE is a masterful filmic craftsman. I highly recommend that each of my fans/followers and friends alike take the effort to view the trailer linked below, and as well to follow the film towards it coming premiere; a launch, which should be met with great laudatory aplomb and effusive praise for the filmmakers and the production company, both.

Congratulations, Dan & Marc! ROCK ON @HIVStoryProject!! Cheers. Ciao & Namasté: I bow to gods within you...

Respectfully yours,

*SURVIVAL ... FACING UNFATHOMABLY INFANDOUS ODDS!!?*  
      
In early October 2007, I was discovered unconscious & half-dead laying in a pool of my own blood & urine, my teeth falling out, by the San Francisco Fire Department & my Ellis Street Apartments Property Manager.  I was in a coma, near death, infected with AIDS-related PCP Pneumonia and a severe necrotizing bacterial infection of the face. My poor, unsightly face was blackened by corrosive decomposition.        

I was rushed to the hospital where I remained under sedation from the trauma for four weeks, during which time doctors at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital and UCSF Medical Center tried to cure the pneumonia and defeat the infection. They were, however, unsuccessful. 

In a last-ditch, last-resort effort to save my life, surgeons were forced to perform an emergency debridement surgery on me to remove the infected skin and bone of my face. In effect, the greater portion of my upper jaw, mouth and nose were amputated; leaving a large, gaping, grotesque hole in the middle of my face.  

That is the image I saw looking back at me in the mirror, when I awoke from a powerful six week sedation and was told of my illness & injury by my surgical team interns, residents and attending doctors... 


I remained in the hospital for seven more months, until I was transferred to acute rehabilitative residency at Laguna Honda Hospital & Rehabilitation Center. On January 30, 2008, I was sent for a two-week surgical stay at San Francisco General Hospital; during which time, doctors performed the first of what should amount to between nineteen and twenty-two ongoing maxillo/craniofacial reconstructions. 

My plastic surgeons replaced the missing portion of my upper mouth and jaw with a graft of skin and bone from my lower left leg. A 8"x16" slab of flesh: eight layers deep, was severed from my lower left leg, then sutured and sewn inside and over the opening in my face. But only, after a six inch portion of my left fibula was sawed off and screwed flat to the remaining portions of my upper jaw – forever destroying its natural curvature...        

Subsequent operations were to follow.  My second surgery: "a revision of the flap," was held on April 23, 2008. Still, then without a nose for nearly a year, I waited five months until my third surgery: "a first-stage nasal reconstruction of forehead flap to nose," which was held on September 15, 2008. 

By February 18, 2011, I found myself successfully rounding out the first full phase of reconstructions with my twelfth operation: "the sealing & suturing of a tracheotomy stoma." As of August 01, 2011, I remain committed to healing and mending my psychiatric health, so that I am well-prepared for a second phase of eight-to-ten more grueling transformations. 


During the long, multiple-year ordeal of the literal, as well as figurative "de/(re)-facement of my queer self," I chose often nearly always to wear surgical or procedural masks when away from the solitude, sanctity and solace of my "squarely sparse and sterile, single-room studio" apartment [attrib. +MATTHEWBLANCHARD from "CONSTRUCT" (dir. Daniel Cardone), feat. STILL AROUND (Outcast Films: USA 2011, 82 mins.)]. 

For nearly half-a-decade since losing my former face, I chose to wear medical-grade, hospital-issue sanitary masks to hide my monstrous face from such curious, yet insensitive scrutiny of the indiscriminately dispassionate and cruel public: incl. countless belligerent bystanders, scathing spectators; even the invariably voracious and vicious voyeurs. 


However, since the much-treasured and cherished arrival of my very own "pseudo/neo-(para)/transfigurative" world premiere "debutante cotillion," – when I proudly celebrated my coming out as a radical queer counterculture literary arts novice: a creative "self/survivor storytelling" author/essayist, with contributions to the irreverently bright and radically brilliant anarchist faggotry that burns inflamed from within and out of the newly print-published pages of Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore's most recent anthology, entitled: _WHY ARE FAGGOTS SO AFRAID OF FAGGOTS? Flaming Challenges to Masculinity, Objectification and the Desire to Conform_ (Baltimore/Oakland: AK Press, 31 January 2012 ; ISBN 978-1849350884, 234 pgs.) – ne'er no more do I find a need to continue to hold up an impenetrable facade of masks to veil the "de/(re)-facing trans/(con)figuration(s)" of such evermore so pleasantly familiar, yet persistently shifting contours of my merely miraculous, yet unfairly disfigured, never-again near-to-normal, but quasi-living and thus fatefully friendly face....


Truth be told: I would so much rather count on cracking a dim-witted, half-notched, queerly crooked and somewhat corrupt, yet still oh-so "pseudo/neo-(para)/quizzically" cute and charismatic "White-bred Euro-mutt/slut All-American Gay Boy" smile; anytime and always, from this present moment forth... 

All for the sake of proclaiming my deeply savored and self-assuring "un-shamed claim to beauty in the face of invisibility" (attrib. *+SINSINVALID,* cf. http://bit.ly/ResidentALIEN ; etc.) – Hell'z YEAH!!  


Very early on during my tumultuously "trans-mutative re-(con)/figuration(s)," San Francisco's leading Public Health Sector Plastics & Reconstruction surgeons told me flat-out, very clinically and blunt, "You will never look normal again."  

When I asked them if I'd ever be able to smile, they responded with a long, awkward silence; and then, the attending doctor replied, "You WILL be able to express happiness;..." _As if that were any conciliation!!_ 


Up until and well-past today, I will continue to recover from and plan patiently for numerous supplemental reconstruction surgeries. Up until and well-past today, I will continue to survive, day-to-day. 

However, my survival plays out such now with quite considerably less disquieting disarray, discomfort, disgust, or even difficulty than it so may have done, only some few years passed... 

Excruciatingly afraid! Unfathomably frightened by my new and changing face! Scared far-too soul-scathingly stiff to crack even a half-dimpled, cockeyed smile!! For far-too long awhile, I was nowhere close to sure or certain, as to if or when the in-exacerbating chaos and turmoil of my tragic, yet triumphant epic saga would ever – _if ever!? surely, not anytime soon!_ – come close to "Its Promised Promethean End...!!?" 


Clearly, my face is grotesque and disfigured, as one could easily observe in my selection of portrait photography & illustrations, linked to this Google+ Profile (e.g., accessible; via "photos," above; etc.)... While, at first, my clinical depression was severely exacerbated by my experience surviving a disfiguring facial injury, I am finally rebounding steadily more towards exultant resilience, through my effortful focus on recovery, rehabilitation, and yes... Even, lasting redemption!! 

Nevertheless, I still stubbornly hold out a most hopeful curiosity and commitment – _both hell-bent, yet heaven-sent!_ – towards envisioning, empowering and ultimately enabling "my elaborate beautification and solemn self-betterment" [attrib. +MATTHEWBLANCHARD from "CONSTRUCT" (dir. Daniel Cardone), feat. STILL AROUND (Outcast Films: USA 2011, 82 mins.)]. 


My ultimate aim is driven towards consistently hope-filled and willful "re-(con)/figuration(s)" and resolutely resilient "de/(re)-facing trans-mutation(s)" of my never-again near-to-normal, but always courageously cute cheeks-to-chin crooked grin, and my now awkwardly re-contoured, yet forever fabulously fagged-out and flirtatious @QHereKidSF "Freak Show Face & Smile" – _As if then; forever, in a while... Always; more!!_ 

I had lost face, literally. But, I have not lost hope! Tragically, tenaciously, and despite great sufferance, I am learning to accept my new face and its continuing transformations.  It has been an endlessly difficult experience living through this harrowing disfigurement, but I maintain hope and grace, courage and pride, and damned near death-defying determination in life, so that I may live – once; again, at last! – in purely unabashed beauty: _Beauty eternal! Beauty internal!_ 

By endeavoring to chronicle my transformations through creative expression and the arts, I have become involved in ideo-artistic collaborations with numerous professional artists, authors, film/theater directors, designers, producers and performers in the San Francisco Bay Area, and beyond. Consequently, I have come to claim with courage and confidence my own uniquely devised yet universally relevant and accessible set of strategies: coined "The 'Self/Survivor' Storytelling" Application(s)... 


I have begun to tear away my masks. My participation on a creative level with many artistic types, as well as my enduring efforts to create & covet some genuine sense of transparency vis-à-vis my stupendously challenging experiences with disfigurement, have led me to reveal myself progressively via the ebbing rhythms and flow of cyber-waves. 

Since early 2008, when I sat down at a computer for the first time with a gaping hole in my face, I've committed myself to the development and maintenance of my own very intimately visible and accessible Web 2.0/Social Media presence, via the Internet. 


With the debut launch/premieres of my numerous varied performances and publications, during mid-2010 to early-2012  – _be they on stage, on screen, or in print!_ – I am making every effort to grow furthermore comfortable with myself, so as to be able to venture out into this world free of falsity, folly, and facade; free as well of ferocity, furor and fear... 

In each, every bit and all of my further earthly journeys and pursuits, I shall steadfastly strive to find what such faith in myself need be for me to endeavor freely to face the world smiling again; at last, while standing tall and proud, so as to bellow forth in resounding declaration my rightfully "un-shamed claim to beauty in the face of invisibility" (attrib. +SINSINVALID ; cf. http://www.sinsinvalid,org ; http://bit.ly/ResidentALIEN ; etc.).  


Such "_Beauty eternal! Beauty internal!_" is that which I so desperately, so determinedly seek to salvage, sanctify, strengthen, and secure! In spite of the dreadfully disastrous, death-defying consequences of HIV/AIDS Disease, Major Depressive and Personality Disorders (e.g., Not Otherwise Specified; etc.), Addictive Co-Dependencies, Delinquencies, Despair, and Disfigurement – dealt altogether at once; thence by and hither forth, as the evermore tortuously tantamount maelstrom of my worst-most mind-flux or mayhem; otherwise thus perchance, as the utmost wicked torrents of my most waywardly pernicious, waned and waxing, miserably woesome sorrows! – I solemnly pray that all of mankind may at its very best beg not be destroyed by such calamity and chaos; such as this: its very worst... _Aghast! BeGODS? Alas._  


Plainly put and perfectly again proclaimed: "an un-shamed claim to beauty in the face of invisibility" is just what I myself am aimed towards, now with the fullest measure of my miraculously "hell-bent, yet heaven-sent" humanity!! 

For, as I've already mentioned, "HOPE REMAINS!!" In fact, hope grows exponentially with each passing day! "But, only at God's speed... God willing!" [attrib. +MATTHEWBLANCHARD from "CONSTRUCT" (dir. Daniel Cardone), feat. STILL AROUND (Outcast Films: USA 2011, 82 mins.)].
