Hello, Cruel World: An Outlaw's Mini-Guide to Survival
Sometimes, whatever it is that gives you the most joy, pleasure or relief also gets you into the deepest trouble—especially when you try to explain it to other people. Like when you love someone you're not supposed to love. Or when the way you express yourself makes other people queasy. As harmless as you feel you're being, people may still think you're bad, wrong or immoral.... There are far too many people who are in that position in life, and it goes far beyond simply sex and gender. This workshop is 120 minutes of me talking with you about doing anything it takes to make your life more worth living. Anything. With the single rule: Don’t be mean. I love doing this workshop, and the discussion that follows it. The workshop is available with or without the truly fun audio/visual bells and whistles.

Featuring readings from local Kicked Out contributors and anthology editor/ former Portland local Sassafras Lowrey
"These individual narratives meld together to tell one gut-wrenching epic story, a story that many of us were and are afraid to hear. The book grabs the reader by the eyelids, forcing those of us who don’t know about the LGBT homeless youth epidemic to confront that fear by looking at it eye-to-eye. Quite simply, Kic...ked Out punches any apathy regarding the issue right out from under you." - from review in Just Out
About 'Kicked Out':
In the U.S., 40% of homeless youth identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ). Kicked Out published by Homofactus Press brings together the voices of current and former homeless LGBTQ youth and tells these forgotten stories of some of our nation’s most vulnerable citizens. Diverse contributors share stories of survival and abuse with poignant accounts of the sanctuary of community and the power of creating chosen families. Kicked Out highlights the nuanced perspectives of national organizations such as The National Gay & Lesbian Task Force and The National Alliance Against Homelessness and regional agencies, including Sylvia’s Place, The Circus Project and Family Builders. This anthology introduced by Judy Shepard, gives voice to the voiceless and challenges the stereotypical face of homelessness.
