Hey everyone, Come check two amazing shows - this weekend and next that are part of the Queer Arts Festival in San Francisco. Buy your tickets online, because both shows will sell out!
Accio! All magical folks and muggles alike to Hogwarts Express: The Musical, part of this year's National Queer Arts Festival.
Friday and Saturday, June 6th and 7th
Named by the SF Bay Guardian, the "Best Queer Harry Potter Drag Show" of 2007, this production is a queer, political retelling of the Harry Potter stories. Celebrating the styles of drag musical performance, a diverse cast of many gendered people bring Rowling's characters to life with their own modern twists. An original version of the production was debuted as part of the SF LGBT Community Center's Launchpad series last year but for this year's National Queer Arts Festival we're coming back longer, louder, more political and even more glittery than before. With new characters, new plot twists and new dance numbers to summon the patronus from within, you don't want to miss this very last chance to see Hogwarts Express live!
This show will sell out so buy your tickets today!
Ps. This show is not for kids. There is adult content.

PLEASE POST WIDELY
An open letter to our communities from “Elliott” (a pseudonym), Kate Loewe email@example.com), Kathy Ni Keefe (firstname.lastname@example.org), Samuel Lurie (email@example.com), and Eli Clare (firstname.lastname@example.org):
We are writing to let our communities know about a recent hate crime that occurred in New Mexico. We are writing to break silence, to create resistance to violence and space for healing, and to build support for the survivor. We are writing in hopes that we can take care of each other, undercut the community-wide fear that comes with hate violence, and work toward justice.
Please note that what follows contains some graphic details, which could be triggering. Also, the survivor is a parent of two children, and this information MUST NOT reach them.

I am performing with one other person, and we want to do something suave.
The theme is '80's' but we do not have to choose a song from that era.
So, besides Justin Timberlake, what are some good songs to do?
