“Love, Sex, and Disability II”

a night of sexy,* dirty, sweet and romantic explorations of disability and sexuality in short films, poetry and music on March 10 at Zoomtopia Art and Dance Studios in Southeast Portland. Performers include Bill Alton, a spoken-word performer who was nominated for a Pushcart Price in 2010, and Shanna Germain (www.shannagermain.com), an Associate Fellow at the Attic Institute who has also garnered a Pushcart nomination, the Rauxa Prize for Erotic Poetry and the C. Hamilton Bailey Poetry Fellowship. Also appearing is singer Jana Losey (http://janalosey.com/), who appeared in “Squonk,” a “multimedia frolic” (The New York Times) on Broadway in 2000, and Caitlin, a.k.a Lulu of http://whereslulu.com/, who is a disabled woman, disability advocate, and blogger who sees Where’s Lulu as an opportunity to raise the standards of accessibility in everyday mainstream culture.

The evening includes “Baskets of Love” raffle and silent auction items, including massage gift certificates, local arts and crafts, tickets to Portland-area performing arts events, wine and chocolates. Please bring cash for the “Baskets of Love.”

Proceeds will support the fifth Disability Pride Art and Culture Festival from April 20-28. The festival brings together dancers, performance artists and visual artists for live performances and short films to reveal the distinctive aesthetic of disability art and to provide the public with an alternative view of the lives of people with disabilities. This year’s festival will include a panel on the intersectionality of race and disability, and will feature a performance by Antoine Hunter, an African American Deaf and Hard of Hearing Choreographer, Dancer, Dance instructor, actor and poet. Mr. Hunter “dances for various companies from many parts of the world and proves that even those with a hearing disability or any kind of disability can reach for their dreams too.”
