A Kiss In The Dream House is the story of Zoe, a young Vietnamese-American woman preparing for her engagement ceremony to long time partner Michelle. When it is revealed that Michelle is thinking about getting reassignment surgery Zoe is unsure whether or not she can stay with her partner or if they should call off the ceremony.
Looking for a total of five actors for an unpaid live theatre gig.

Man: This character will be cast color blind late twenties to early thirties. Quirky guy Zoe meets for a date on a hook up site.

Not steampunk, but many of you may be familiar with the author of the play, Ashley Lauren Rogers, who is a prominent transwoman active in the steampunk community:
She also has the webseries Monthly Tea with Madeline Foxtrot
"A Kiss in the Dream House" would be her NYC premiere of her newest work, a play she has been working on for the last FOUR years. Stage Left Studios is giving her a fantastic opportunity, and we REALLY want this play to happen, with the cast she envisions.
Auditions are happening NEXT WEEK!
Please signal boost EVERYWHERE!
Kissing Covens is a zine distro based in Oakland, formed by Anna Anthropy and Jetta Rae AKA DoubleCakes.
The Distro is focused on creating, curating. and distributing work of a radical, anti-oppression bent from queer and trans creators.
This is a critical moment in the politics of transness & the U.S. military. Don’t get conned by the neoliberal “inclusion” rhetoric.
The United States military is an evil, violent institution that murders people and destabilizes legitimate governments in the interests of profit and American hegemony. THE QUESTION OF TRANS MILITARY PARTICIPATION IS NOT ONE OF TRANS “EQUALITY,” IT’S ONE OF TRANS COMPLICITY. Stances that calls for anything less than the complete dismantling of the military, imperialism, and United States hegemony have nothing to do with “equality,” they are a tacit endorsement of everything that the military does and stands for.
The Supreme Court is about to hear two more cases, where the outcomes may have a wider impact than the Arizona law may have had.
