Tomorrow night is the 10th Cachín Cachán Cachunga! at The Street. The wonderful Andra Simons is in from London, don't miss him -- he's a rare treat. And his stellar new book is here with him. The Joshua Tales is available tomorrow night, and also from Tree House Press.  Cachín will also feature a new story from Hamish MacDonald and other yumminess. Dance the night away with DJ Supernowoczesna, too!

xo Now I'm going back to have fun with Andra, bye!

The lovely Karen Miranda Augustine has interviewed me for The Artist's Business Digest, about my micropress sandraslittlebookshop.

In other news, you can now download Zorras' songs online from CD Baby!

In still other news, here is my article in Xtra! about the censorship of queer and trans art in Glasgow.

"Love, the strongest and deepest element in all life, the harbinger of hope, of joy, of ecstasy; love, the defier of all laws, of all conventions; love, the freest, the most powerful moulder of human destiny; how can such an all-compelling force be synonymous with that poor little State and Church-begotten weed, marriage? -Emma Goldman

There is huge focus on gay marriage these days, and I understand that sometimes we have to take what little privilege we can get in order to visit a loved one in hospital or immigrate in a fascist climate. But what so often gets left out of the argument is how jumping on the marriage train leaves out OTHER people -- different kinds of families, different kinds of love. How ensuring we are not discriminated against in this particular way only changes our own position, and abandons many others to illegality, poverty or a general lack of human rights.

The gay white mainstream focus on "equality" issues like gay marriage and gays in the military reinforces racism, state-sanctioned monogamy and the status quo. It also ignores important issues like poverty, immigrants' rights and lack of housing. Here's an interesting article about how the fight for gay marriage is fundamentally racist, by Kenyon Farrow
