Hey there Flannel Filers!
I’ve been so busy working on my new manuscript that I fear I’ve neglected you.
How are you? Don’t be like that. You know I love you.
Anyway, more about me.
My new book is called “My Mother Says Drums Are for Boys.” It’s a collection of stories and other musings about gender, coming out and, of course, living as a butch.
I write about Joan Jett, Janet Jackson and which is the better Indigo Girl to name drop on a first date. Amy Ray. The answer is Amy Ray.
In my book, I’d like to include a list of things people have been told are only for boys (or girls). The color pink, unicorns, G.I. Joe action figures …
Like the title of my book says, my mother told me drums are for boys, and I still feel the sting of that 40 years later.
Have a great weekend, everyone! And thanks for your help!
