Queer Heartache Video Release

It's Valentine's Day!
As many of you know, I am all about love in all forms: self love, partnered love, friend love, family love, spiritual love, community love, and nasty love. And if you've seen my show in the last year you know I always tell a story of speed dating on Valentine's Day in New York City and the adventure I had as a queer person trying to fit into a culture that I've always tried so hard to resist. I'm finally releasing a video of it taken at St. Olaf's College last fall. Enjoy and please pass it on to anyone you know who might need a little laugh and love this week.
