My God! You've noticed? Of course. It's been at least two whole weeks or something since these little fingers of mine have typed the words "Jinkx Monsoon" for any reason whatsoever. A miracle! A world record! I'm sure! Circle the date in red.
Anyhooters—rare is the week that we don't find ourselves up to our 'mo-ish little teats in some dizzy drunken DJed haze that's crammed full of go-go boys and Jell-O shots. I'm not complaining. But let us depart from tradition a bit, skip the dancing and superstar DJs, flex our brains, and get our big queer geek on instead. If you weren't quite aware, Seattle is home to a thriving population of 'mos who revel, ever so geekishly, in cosplay, sci-fi, so-called "gaming," and the like. It's true! Seattle is also home to more than a fistful of quality and often award-winning queer sci-fi and fantasy fiction writers: Ginn Hale, Astrid Amara, Samuel Jarius Pettit, and Laylah Hunter, to name a few. And these very authors are scheduled to read for you, hob with you, nob with you, rub your elbows, and so forth at Gaylaxy Quest: A Celebration of Queer Sci-Fi and Fantasy—a big geeky freakin' geekfest for geeks thrown by geeky-loving Gay City! Geekariffic. Calamus Auditorium at Gay City, 7 pm, free, all ages.
