I forgot to share this interview I did with Dr. Mimi Hoang on her work as a researcher, psychologist and bi activist.

I have a feature up at The Rumpus -- I've been working on it for almost two years. This is another one of those that falls under hardest-thing-I've-ever-written. It's about my cousin, a neo-Nazi, nearly killing his friend in front of me, but also regret and loving your family and Diet Dr. Pepper.

Feeling really fortunate, waking up to all kind of love. My essay, Notes from a Unicorn, was published on The Rumpus this morning. It's about being bi, particularly about being a bi man. In the spirit of honesty, it might be the hardest thing I've ever written. Also, a warning: If you're family or squeamish, there's some graphic me and the sexing in here.

"‎"Those they could not separate, they pepper-sprayed directly in the face, holding these students as they did so. When students covered their eyes with their clothing, police forced open their mouths and pepper-sprayed down their throats. Several of these students were hospitalized. Others are seriously injured. One of them, forty-five minutes after being pepper-sprayed down his throat, was still coughing up blood.

This is what happened. You are responsible for it."

Just a reminder that I'm reading with the incredible Kate Gale of Red Hen Press this Sunday at 5 at Beyond Baroque in Venice Beach, as well as the wonderful Barbara Jane Reyes and Rachelle Cruz. I will either read about bad sex on a kitchen island or accidentally raising an army and destroying the world.

Wow, just got back from Occupy Los Angeles, where in honor of Oakland, protestors took over the front of LAPD headquarters and decorated the main sign with the names of everyone killed by LAPD in the last five years. That was a lot of names. The cops did not look happy. I'm also pretty sure this is the only time in history when anyone could get away with that.
