Narcissus Isn’t Dead

tw for ? homophobia, mm ableism maybe

More poetry I filmed from Our Solipsistic Nightmare! Hex did a phenomenal job, and the talent just keeps aflowin’

This is a spoken word piece I recorded that was performed on Friday by Vincente “SubVersive” Perez about mixed race identity. In his words, “This is for anyone who has ever been forced into boxes, anyone who has has parts of themselves erased or ignored. This is for both Latinidad and Blackness… This is to all those who have been taught to hate parts of themselves for other peoples’ comfort. This is to accepting and loving all of yourself.”

Dastard Shanks and the Boys will be debuting “Our Solipsistic Nightmare” tonight at 8 at UChicago’s Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality. There will also be poetry, food, and horchata! What more could you ask for?

If these photos aren’t enough to get you excited, I don’t know what else I can do because all I have to offer is my camera and internet enthusiasm (~!!!~). To be fair, my real-life anticipation for this event is also unparalleled. 

I’ll also be filming this event and hopefully posting that at some point in the near future.

This is another one of the promo shots that didn’t get used for the flyer for Our Solipsistic Nightmare, which will be premiering in Hyde Park on Friday! There will also be performances in NYC, elsewhere in Chicago, and Columbus so check it out. 

Slurp’s Up is almost dead and I am inconsolable but they’re going out with a BANG

Hey it’s my bedroom again because the sun was setting and I liked how it was slicing through the room

The poster on the top right is from Homemade polaroid, one of my favorite blogs.

Blanket fort in Canada.

I’m finally home!

(For only a week, but it still feels good.)

My wall decorations depend entirely on paper clips and Polaroids. The larger photos on top usually get posted on this here blog, and the little ones are part of a bigger project where I take an instant photo of every person who comes over to my apartment.

(I also recently switched to Lightroom, so this was also me trying to see how successfully I could make my bedroom look like every other bedroom on Tumblr.)

I didn’t notice the train said ‘America’ on it, which I find amusing considering we were in Canada at the time.

I shot a rehearsal with Jean&Kalil&Juliet for their queer punk opera project. Chicago friends, this will be happening in late July/early August so get excited!
