Come to the next Hollywood Queer Open Mic. You never know who will be there. :)

Loading the Honda…

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

Sometimes, I am loading my Honda with mics and guitars and the occasional samurai sword and heels, and makeup–and I am just thinking–why on earth do I do this? And more importantly–is there a better way to do this?

Not everyone performs or wants to perform. Or write. Or play music. During those days when I am up at 4 am trying to get to the Raleigh airport, I can really understand not wanting the hassle. But I do it because that is what I do. I am a writer, and I want to perform and publish and develop and improve. The HQOM is for everyone who feels this way, who can’t live without a guitar, or a pen, or a stage. If you have ever stayed home to finish your poem or song while your friends went to the movies or to a bar, this is the place for you.

Here’s to better, more informed, connected and prepared queer artists!

Much love,

HQOM Friday, May 27 signup 7pm or thereabouts!
