I am honored and excited to have two poems published in RFD 172. RFD, published since 1974, has been long associated with the Radical Faeries. Over the years, the magazine has featured many writers and poets I admire.
My first piece, Experience Song, is a response to an academic essay by Joan Scott and Judith Butler. This song engages with postmodern ideas of epistemology and identity politics. The second poem, That Particular Moment, is about surviving the AIDS epidemic, while struggling to find a place and feeling anachronistic around newer generations.
I opened the issue that arrived in today’s mail. It is beautiful, filled with amazing color artwork, essays, and poetry!! Please check it out! I am thrilled to be in an issue featuring an interview with Ian Young – editor of The Male Muse – the first anthology of gay male poetry I ever owned, published by the late John Gill at Crossing Press.
And here’s some news for 2018… pre-production has started on a new poetry video, once again directed by the talented Fred Gebhardt. The new video will be a filmed treatment of That Particular Moment. Stay tuned for more info!
