Ground Control To Major Diva: My One-Stop Book Tour With Alaska Thunderf*ck Comments (0)

IMG_6503* copyA Lammy? We're aiming for the National Book Award! (All images in this post courtesy of Matthew Rettenmund)

Uncharacteristically, I haven't written about my recent quick trip to L.A. to promote the book I wrote with Alaska Thunderf*ck (or Thunderfun, as she is called  PEG store for newsletterfor the sake of marketing the book to people still living at home). For some reason, I kept putting other stuff in front of writing this up, maybe because it wound up being an unexpectedly warm-and-fuzzy (if frantic and fleeting) event.

I went out two weekends ago—business class. I've never been in business class, so far as I remember, and found it ultra-comfortable and immediately took it on as my new normal, so that when I fly coach next time it will feel like being evicted from a gated community.

I'd planned to work from the plane, but the WiFi was out, meaning I did nothing but sleep. I wasn't sure what I was doing as far as promo for the book—Alaska Thunderfun and the Inner Space Odyssey—so being well-rested was a step (in a high-heeled shoe) in the right direction.

Working with Alaska had been a breeze. She has an insanely fun creation story that involves intergalactic gender-bending and the early '80s, and she knew pretty much what she wanted me to do, so I simply did it and she offered her input where needed and it was finished. I think it wound up being pretty funny and hopefully will surprise people with its mission of gender fluidity. I think of it as a Choose Your Own Gender book, or like Goosebumps with lovely lady lumps.

I stayed in Little Tokyo, which meant I was sick of Japanese food—which I love!—within two meals, but since I was working all day from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m., IMG_6508* copythat really only left me time to eat at offbeat times and squeeze in a couple of meetings with friends I hadn't seen in forever and, of course, to explore my popularity as a new face on the locals' Grindr feeds.

Again, I must thank the parents who continue to raise their young men to have no morals at all.

The event itself was a lot of fun, once I had a solid handle on what was expected. It was celebrating the opening of the first all-drag retail store at Arts District Co-Op (453 Colyton St., L.A.), where the merch of such drag luminaries as Jinkx Monsoon, Adore Delano, Sharon Needles and—of course—Alaska would be on sale. The space was chic, beautifully designed and 100% conducive to lots of impulse-buying. I was eyeing some Violet Chachki wear, and I'm not even a big fan!

Police: L.A. Pride Lurker Did Not Say Anything About HARM, Was Armed To The Hilt, Was Meeting An Online Buddy Comments (0)

James Howell, apprehended with a boatload of weapons en route to L.A. Pride, was going to hang with a dude he, um, met online.

The 20-year-old Indiana resident traveled cross-country to meet this friend, who has been interviewed by authorities and absolved of any suspicion that he may have been a potential co-conspirator to do damage at the parade.

It's worth noting that the original report that Howell admitted he was hoping to cause “harm” to L.A. Pride. was false; he simply admitted he was heading there.

Via TMZ:

Law enforcement sources say they found the friend and he backs up Howell's story, but is adamant he was clueless Howell's trunk contained 3 assault rifles, high capacity magazines, and a 5 gallon bucket of chemicals cops suspect could have been used as a bomb.

We're told the friend told police he met the Indiana man online recently, and planned to meet in person to attend Pride together ... and that's all.

Cops believed the alibi ... and cleared him of any involvement.

Police still have no solid idea of what exactly Howell was planning, but he does have a record. I'd love to know the circumstances under which Howell met his online friend; did they meet on Grindr or in the comments section at at InfoWars?

Outpouring Of Support For Orlando From Other Cities Comments (0)

The scene in WeHo on Sunday:

In Manhattan, hundreds spontaneously gathered outside the Stonewall Inn to remember the victims of Omar Mateen who died at Pulse in Orlando Sunday morning.

Via Joe.My.God.:

Along the edges of crowd about two dozen heavily armed members of NYPD stood stoically but on alert as television crews conducted interviews with passersby, many of whom spoke furiously through tears. At one point, led by an group unseen to me in the middle of the crowd, attendees erupted in a singalong of Over The Rainbow. As the song ended a small child’s voice wafted over the square: “STOP THE HATE!” And then, for the first time, you saw smiles.

Please feel free to send me any images or notes about things happening in your area.
