Woman Seeks Vagina

Lambs, it's time for me to play Stage Mother. You won't mind if I have Bosco the super herding dog use his herding talents to shove guide you through the doors of the Ringwald Theater, will you? I'll tell you why.

Back in my open mic days, when I would trot my happy ass down to the late great Xhedo's, to inflict treat my fellow java junkies to some of my poetry read aloud, I made a young friend named Julia. This girl had style, and I liked her right away. 

Look, I don't often talk/post about my transness. To me, talking about my Previous Life is like talking about high school; I hated it, it's over, move on. All that to say...I don't often feel a connection with my fellow transpeople. I feel like I should, but I don't. Julia is different. She felt like family to me, right from the start; a soul sister, despite age difference, despite her being straight and me being lesbian, despite the details, baby. My lil sis, if she'll let me say it. I have always been really proud of her.

Unfortunately, I lost touch with her. Still, I have often wondered what happened to her. Well dayum! She's a star of the stage! Who knew?!

June 23rd, she will perform her own "Please Give Me Your Money So I Can Buy A Vagina" at the Ringwald! I will be there. Oh, and...I said "vagina" on my blog again. Can western culture survive it?

Please visit Julia at her blog, and tell her to "break a leg". I can't wait to see her show. Read more about Julia HERE.

Here's a little video gift for you, Julia, if you drop by:

Despite encountering the dreaded V-bomb, I continued to read and am still alive to tell the tale.My marriage hasn't even dissolved yet. Thanks for the links to the Ringwald Theater GPS--looks like a fun time, and all good things to your 'sis.'

Loved your story.
It would be very crude to make any normal G-Man remarks.
I know how much this must mean to you.

What's bizarre is that a long-lost friend from my Air Force days got in touch with me today. Hadn't heard from him in many years, and today there he is! Strange how some blogs seem to parallel my life in odd ways...

Wow. I'm sure her play would run the spectrum of emotion and be an eye-opener as well! Yo will have to update us and let us know your feelings after seeing Julia perform.
