Dispatches from Prospect Park & adjacent nabes on Sunday. I had a really eye opening day, starting with great conversation with friends, good food and help from a stranger, and onto the Brooklyn Museum, and finally walking for an hour in the lush, damp park. This butterfly didn't owe us anything! There was a tree named "Unless!" And then I spent 20 minutes under an awning with some other queer people hiding from a surprise downpour and watching neighbors run through it. Best day. Felt better than most recently. โ˜”๏ธ

I miss you @mikepsweeney

BOOTS RILEY says: Go see @sorry2botheryou ASAP

Punderdome tonight with @traceyroth before & after. Got third! We got the category "law and crime" in the second round & interrupted the night by making puns criticizing migrant detention policies instead of puns that accept our justice system for what it is. It's a weird stage environment that our audience is mostly white, as well as most performers. I felt glad that, given time on a microphone to talk about "law and crime", that Tracey shared my values about trying to remind people in the room about the violence of the state, so we teamed up to disrupt the conversation. Earlier today I posted our puns here on Instagram with no context, and someone helped to educate/remind me that making puns about dark things like this trauma can wound people who are living it. Audience matters. I'm sorry for the post, I deleted it. The focus should be on the voices and experiences of everyone with and without kids who's been forced to living in captivity or fear.

A spattering of weekend vibes from a heart-healing long visit with @mikepsweeney and a couple beautiful days up in Patterson, NY. My coworkers worked really hard in Texas and in Manhattan while I was out, and helped cover my work in a major way after I had an urgent need to take days off for, frankly, my mental well-being. I'm grateful that I got to step away for a few days and try to reset my head. Repeat after me: there will always be more news. There will always be more news...

Dyke march was v v good. Abolish ICE!
