Tonight is show time for "Voices- The Trans Journey In 3 Acts" put on by the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles here in Los Angeles.  I was cut from 3 monologues down to as single due to show run time limits but time is approaching.  I will actually be on stage a total of 5 times, and another  chorus member is reading a poem I wrote for the Chorus 5 years ago. (It has been that long!!) Those of you who do show business know better than to wish me good luck at this point.  I already broke a molar a week ago so we can pass on the Broken Leg thing too.  "There is no business like show business!!"

The show was a HUGE SUCCESS.  Only a handful of empty seats from people who had bought tickets but did not show, so, over 230 people in the audience (250 is theater max).  I have been napping off an Adrenaline Hangover today.  We all went out to 11:00PM dinner at a local 24hour diner type restaurant.  Two of my kids and their SO's were in the audience and loved it.  One number we did was Steven Sondheim's Children Will Listen from Into The Woods, and the cast members had submitted pre-teen pictures of ourselves that we had provided several months ago, but it had people in the audience tearing up from thinking of then and now in our lives.  One of our young Trans men had submitted a video made of pictures of his coming out in his local school district and the legal issues his family went through.  One story of coming out as Queer in the times of the HIV/AIDS epidemic was in there as well.  It was an emotional but hopeful and as the name of one of the Chorus's own songs written for us says it was "Victorious".

Vicky, the show sounds amazing.  Glad it was such a big hit.  Too bad your chorus doesn't tour nationally.  I'd love to see and hear them.

Wow @VickySGV!! Congratulations on your success. I look forward to watching these. I’ve seen you in one or two of these shows previously and it’s always inspiring to see one of our own making an impact. Good on you!

 

My Best,

      Now for some calming music....Phil |Keaggy's first band out of Cleveland...

      Hey @Heather Shay the Ramones provide a neat segue to L7, an all-girl grunge-era punk band I've been listening to a lot lately. Their big hit was "Pretend We're Dead", but I've only just discovered the earlier album, Smell the Magic, produced by Jack Endino of early-Nirvana, Green River and Screaming Trees fame. L7 rock!

      Many people I know in the UK have gone down the private medicine route to transition and that's fine if they can afford it. But many others simply cannot. A few have basically put themselves in a position where they will be working until they drop to pay for GRS.  I started work at 15. The first job I had that paid a decent wage, I only got when I was in my mid 40s, then due to health issues I had to quit that which is how I got into making a living in music but that's been pretty much hand to mouth.  So my only route would have been via the NHS and that's usually a long wait.

      There are definitely pros and cons, but my particular conformity is neither a blessing or curse, it's just me. Not my fault people in society have low tolerance for my existence. I feel I'm cursed with allergies, and a fate to be stuck on a planet full of overly big headed animals that are destructive, complain a lot, and are fickle.
    • Marcie Jensen
      I think it's a bit of both, actually. The blessing part comes from being one's self, being given greater insight into how different people think and see themselves as well as having a greater understanding of who we are as individuals. The curse part, well, it comes from being marginalized and the frustrations associated with a general lack of acceptance by society at large.   It's funny @Heather Shay. This thread brought an old Kris Kristofferson song to mind. It's called "The Pilgrim: CHapter 33." There's a line in it that says: "...Never knowing if believing is a blessing or a curse, or if the goin' up is worth the coming down."  For some reason, not sure why, this seems apt with regard to your question. Mostly, I believe the going up (transition) is more than worth the coming down (prejudice, fear, hate, etc) that we all experience.

      Currently the waters are very calm.

      Do you think being different from society's norms in regard to gender or sexual orientation is a blessing or a curse?

      I have been in Colorado several times and one of the beautiful sights is the Rocky Mountains which have rocks.Sadly, they have an elected rep who has the same intelligence as the rocks, but is nowhere near as nice to be around.  Good for AOC.
    • Carolyn Marie
      Thanks, @Jamey.    Yes, AOC doesn't put up with any b.s.  Boebert and her ilk enjoy stoking the flames while pointing their fingers everywhere else.   Carolyn Marie
