bam. proof that kids raised by gays don't come out any worse whatsoever. stick that in your pipe and smoke it, homophobes.




so maybe this would be clique-y and obnoxious, but I don't care.

I want my cast to have t-shirts.

on the front it would say: GENDER
on the back it would say: FUCKER

and they would wear them for the opening of the show and it would be amazing.

also: have been thinking about the posters. I want to have 3 or 4 different posters, kind of like we did for 18 to 21. each one would be of 3-4 of the cast members, in costume, in all their gender-fucking glory, each holding up a sign with one word of the title on it (but incorporating different levels and stuff, not all just in a line). and THEN I thought, what if we did a whole genderfuck photo shoot with the cast and made a Case Gallery exhibit out of it? so I emailed Maggie to ask her if she was interested in taking photos for me, and she said sure. I think that, if it works out, it will be awesome-amazing. potentially a lot of work but if we schedule it far enough in advance, it'll work.

I need to figure out exactly what I'm doing for callbacks. grumble. I DO know that the "1, 2, 3, 4, gesture, gesture, gesture, gesture, FREEZE, 2, 3, 4, walk, 6, 7, 8" exercise of Josh Chambers fame will be a part of it. but doing it as different gendered stereotypes: first the men as men and women as women, and then with men as women and women as men. also have some sides I can use that may or may not even be used in the final show. beyond that, though, I reeeeeeally need to figure out stuff for each individual stereotype. particularly "Tranny," "Chauvinist Pig" and "Fence-Sitter."


*create callback questionnaire
*find more sides
*improv assignments?

Posted above article to Facebook. I just picked up one of my old copies of Time and read an article arguing that gay parenthood shouldn't be allowed, and it made me so angry. That article made me feel a lot better, so thank you.

I'm having a hard time with her. she literally does open a box in the beginning, and she's sort of the person whose "journey" it is, who starts out sitting on the fence but forms stronger opinions by the end. also becomes the Feminist Lesbian's girlfriend. I was originally going to have a "Confused Bisexual" but realized that that wasn't enough to create a character from. now she's the one person who doesn't embody any stereotype, but is on the outside looking in. kinda like Indra's Daughter...
