the old brown jacket

On that sweltering summer night in 1972, the last thing I wanted to deal with was Papa barging into my room. He had found out I appeared on TV the night before to debate an aversion therapist who was “curing” queers by zapping them with electricity. How could I explain it to him? He couldn’t understand long hair or folk music, let alone the fact that I was queer and proud of it. This wasn’t going to end well.

My Mom Says I’m Better Than You

It’s 7th grade at the middle school dance and my big crush is there surrounded by friends and giggling… her long, blue dress seems to magnify the sparkle of her already piercing green eyes… I slowly put one foot in front of the other… palms are sweaty, heart is palpitating, just waiting for that perfect moment… but there’s never really a perfect moment, is there?

Man Enough to be a Girl

Julia hasn’t worn a dress since her 8th Grade Graduation in 1977. How hard could it be to buy a wedding gown? Hard. YouTube videos and duct tape are apparently not helping. Now she has to go with them nuclear option: call Mom. What could go wrong?

The California Missions and Race Tour

Summer 2012. Fred is standing in the middle of a California Mission Church. He is with a docent and 3 other visitors. One is an expert on the Catholic Church. One is an expert on the plight of the Native Americans. The third is an expert on…everything else. They stare at Fred. Is his fly open? Hair mussed? They have one thing in common. They are all experts on which famous black person Fred resembles.

The Fireman Song

It’s dawn, January 27th, 2009. Joshua A. Hattam lies on the side yard of 234 E. Tokay St., Lodi, California. Blood sliding from two bullet holes in his head, and another in his track marked arm, paint the earth around him. At a hospital’s emergency room, one mile away, his mother waits for him to visit. Her situation – almost as perilous as his – and for both, a worse tragedy gathers. How did Josh overcome seemingly insurmountable odds to tell his story?

The Bus Ride

By age 19, I was on the bus again, through no fault of my own, I don’t know what the hell is going on. All I know is, I’m in this holding tank with this correctional officer who don’t want us to think.

Couch Potato Panda Rituals

It’s 1:30 a.m. Kenny is paralyzed on the couch. Bay Area new agers told him to move on so it should be easy. Texting him memes of unicorns shitting zen quotes and rainbows fixes everything, right?
