Flannel Files uncovers lost scene from Carol


What else do you like to do, Therese, besides listen to your hi-fi records?


Well, I like books.


Do you have a favorite author, Therese?


Rae Theodore. She works at the department store with me. She’s a terrific writer.


What an unusual name. Rae Theodore. Do you think I’d like her book?


I’m sure you would. She was married once just like you and Harge. And she writes about pretty girls with soft, feathery hair.


Maybe Abby would like this book?


Yes, girls like Abby would. Anyone, really. Haven’t we all felt different?


Where can I get this book?





Oh, Therese. From one of those tall, muscular women?


No. The online book retailer. Really, any place you can buy books on-line. Just type in Leaving Normal: Adventures in Gender.

By the way, Rae has a blog, too, called The Flannel Files. She writes about girls like her who wear neckties and brown boots and flannel shirts in every color of the rainbow.

Oh, Therese.

This was a promotional piece I put together for a swag bag to be handed out at a local LGBT Oscar party tonight. Thought it would get more attention than a more traditional flyer, magnet or business card.

Did you see Carol? Thoughts?
