Wordless Wednesday: Mesquite Dunes, Death Valley

Wordless Wednesday: Blue Pipe

A serendipitous Wordless Wednesday, taken during a concert at the Uptown in Oakland, California. I liked both the architectural detail of the pipe against the brick, and the blue lighting.

Video from the show – the Active Music Series 10th Anniversary festival – will be up on our companion channel CatSynth TV soon. Please subscribe at https://youtube.com/CatSynthTV.

(Not so) Wordless Wednesday: Compton’s Cafeteria Way

In 2016, the 100 block of Taylor Street (between Turk and Eddy) was designated as Gene Compton’s Cafeteria Way for the 50th anniversary of the Compton Cafeteria Riots, a riot and protest by transgender people, drag queens, and others two years before the famous Stonewall Inn Riot in New York. I happened to be at the unveiling during Pride 2016 and can read my report here.

The Center For New Music, which is half a block north on Taylor Street, is launching a series commemorating its famous neighbor and transgender awareness and activism. I am proud to be one of the inaugural performers: you can find more about the show this Thursday here.

Finally, you can also read my article about walking the entire length of Taylor Street.
