Physics, food fights, and gender non-conformity blend into this meditation on the nature of things inspired by conversations between the artist and her young son. This installation in the cycle is a one-woman spectacle - part science experiment/confessional, part cocktail party/ritual - 'Inner OUT' profoundly and absurdly exalts and questions our human condition through the lens of Queer art and culture, parenting, and food. A poem written in dance, film, and Jell-O. Audience warning: contains some nudity, language, and Jell-O. Tickets: $18 general, $12 student/senior. www.gaycity.org.

SEATTLE GAY & LESBIAN
BOOK CLUB -
TELL THE WOLVES I'M HOME
AND THE NORMAL HEART
The Seattle Gay & Lesbian Book Club meets every Wednesday from 6-7:30 p.m., at Seattle Area Support Groups Community Center (303 17th Ave. E. at E. Thomas St.).
In April, the club will discuss Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Riftka Brunt. It's 1986. The world is terrified of the new plague. We learn in the very first sentence that the fourteen year-old girl narrator loves more than any other person alive her Gay uncle who is dying of AIDS. Which is walloping in itself - but wait until Uncle Finn's lover seeks her out as the only one who loved her uncle as much as he did. Get your handkerchiefs ready. As Gay literature enters the mainstream, let's think about how we describe ourselves and how straight people describe us. We will be able to talk for hours about the way Brunt uses her Gay characters her novel. DON'T read the back of the book - the blurb gives away half the surprises. Bring your opinions!
In May, the club will discuss Larry Kramer's 1985 AIDS play, The Normal Heart. On May 7, the group will read aloud Act One; on May 14, the group will read aloud Act Two; on May 21, the group will discuss the play; on Sunday, May 25, HBO will telecast the made-for-television movie, The Normal Heart, with Julia Roberts and Mark Ruffalo; on May 28, the group will discuss the made-for-television movie.
