Eduardo's Notebook Challenge

The contents of a page of my notebook, per Eduardo's request:

       O'HARA
          [heart drawn here]
GINSBURG VS. MERRILL
(forces of gay nature)
Note: get this guy's overtly sexual book now!!

AIDS as a calling
"Who dumped him over Easter"
The privacy of reading is when gay men first explored their sexuality
Sexist realities
Unstoppable urge to broaden ideas of citizenship, family

Queer painter Donald Evans 45-77

Notions of miniature--conflict with preciousness

Imaginary countries with real stamps in them.

"I wanted more vaginas, more vaginas, more vaginas!"
—Maureen Seaton on a Judy Chicago exhibit

[and, written vertically in the margin by Sarah Vap]
Elledge looks like Richard Gere
[and my written response following it]
FUCK YES

  1. Maureen Seaton rules! I love that quote from her. Vaginas! Vaginas! I always thought it was a pretty word.

    And who is Ellege? Inquiring homos want to know.

  2. Jim Elledge, who is an awesome poet. He has an amazing book, The Chapters of Coming Forth By Day and has written some beautiful works published in Indiana Review.
