I’m off to Los Angeles today to attend Rise Up and Shout! the special event on Saturday, September 9th, produced by the Los Angeles Gay Men’s Medicine Circle to benefit White Crane.
I’m really excited about it and the opportunity to visit with Malcolm Boyd and Mark Thompson, sit for a portrait with Don Bachardy and, later, work with White Crane Institute Advisory Board member, Robert Croonquist to produce an oral history video on the San Francisco Hula Palace with bon vivant and activist, Lee Mentley.
L.A. is my old stomping grounds, so it will be good to see old friends. Now if I could only remember how to drive on a freeway!
