Trans Scripts – The A.R.T. Celebrates the Transgender Community

As we are about to watch these United States pass into the hands of a fascist demagogue who will likely attempt to roll back historic gains for minorities of every kind, let us take a moment and celebrate the, “… rich and diverse experiences within the transgender community.”

Celebrating the Community

Geoff and I may not live in Cambridge anymore, but we still work there and it is my heart-home.  That’s why when a giant fire blew up in the middle of the city at the end of 2016 it felt not only like a giant slap in the face, we anxiously watched as people we knew, first responders primarily, fought to save the community we love.  Some of the people displaced by the fire turned out to be from MIT.  Nobody we knew personally, but the MIT and Cambridge communities rallied around them.

Collective memories are short, especially for tragedy.  That fire was at the beginning of December.  Other things have happened since then, and this next week is going to be a busy one in the US.  Happily, there are still benefits happening in and around Cambridge for the 125 people displaced by those fires.  Displaced is a really clean, clinical term for, “lost everything in a raging inferno from HELL.”  I know, I had to deal with the aftermath of the fire that killed my grandmother.  Once you’ve been through a fire you never, ever forget.

This weekend, if you’re around Cambridge and you can, help these folks out.  I can pretty much promise you they had the worst holiday of their lives, and they’re going to be rebuilding for years.  Here’s a really enjoyable way to lend a hand.

Cambridge Fire Victims Benefit Ryles 212 Hampshire Street Cambridge, MA 02139 Jan 15th 5-11pm

There’s even going to be time to go, enjoy yourself, and get home in time for the Sherlock S4 finale.

See you there.

This is going to be so much fun.  This year I get to participate as a vendor in The Look of Local Fashion Show, an event put on by Cambridge Local First in conjunction with The Garment District and Boston Costume and a bunch of the most happening local businesses around.  It is going to be fantastic.

Moving- the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

The extended radio silence around here has been due to several factors.  The major factor has been because Geoff and I spent the better part of this summer looking for and then buying a house.  (YAY HOUSE!!!!!)  Then we had to move.

We had to move ALL the stuff and things.  And ALL the books.  OMG.

May the Fourth be With You and other things unrelated to Game of Thrones

We’ve been writing a lot about A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones lately, and that’s fabulous.  You have been a super audience and excellent with the comments, reading, and sharing.  But as today is May the Fourth and there are other cool things going on I’m going to pop in to add a post that, while awesome and geeky, has nothing to do with Game of Thrones.  Not even a little.

MIT Music: Concerts and a Job

Regular readers and anyone who’s perused my resume probably know that Geoff and I are happily employed at MIT.  I am also involved in the arts here as a member of the Artists Beyond the Desk committee.  It’s a great group and is regularly responsible for concerts of staff who are also musicians, writers, actors, etc.  It allows us to showcase our artistic skills that are in addition to those we wield behind the desk.

There is an ABD concert coming up this week, an MIT Women’s Chorale concert on the horizon, as well as a music job opening you should know about.  Read on for more details.
