Gina. Writer, cultural worker, queer cripple, genderqueer femme, Paisano strega, fat sex worker, devout pervert, earnest nerd.
This tumblr used to be a personal blog, but now it is mostly where I go to: check up on far-away friends, blow off steam, be silly, post pictures of my cats, talk about which David Bowie song is the queerest, & etc.
If you're a fan of my writing, take a peek at my current manuscript in progress: How To Have A Body.
Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet. Enjoy your stay. <3
“As it turned out, Lou and I didn’t live far from each other in New York, and after the festival Lou suggested getting together. I think he liked it when I said, “Yes! Absolutely! I’m on tour, but when I get back – let’s see, about four months from now – let’s definitely get together.” This went on for a while, and finally he asked if I wanted to go to the Audio Engineering Society Convention. I said I was going anyway and would meet him in Microphones. The AES Convention is the greatest and biggest place to geek out on new equipment, and we spent a happy afternoon looking at amps and cables and shop-talking electronics. I had no idea this was meant to be a date, but when we went for coffee after that, he said, “Would you like to see a movie?” Sure. “And then after that, dinner?” OK. “And then we can take a walk?” “Um . . .” From then on we were never really apart.”
