December 23rd, 2008 at 1:55 pm

This list just scratches the surface of this big ole wrap up we’ve been working on at the International Women’s Health Coalition. For all the details, including info about the next steps for all of these wins (because any gain in sexual health and reproductive rights shouldn’t be taken for granted) – click here. If […]

Video of my December 17th speech

December 22nd, 2008 at 11:13 pm

Last Wednesday, I set up my International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers speech to auto-post about the time I would be giving it in Washington Square Park. I handed my Flip camera to Tess and asked her to shoot (plus she’s been curious about the Flip – no better way to learn it […]

Favorite Photos of 2008

December 21st, 2008 at 4:24 pm

I’m starting to put together some wrap up posts for 2008, so I figured I’d start it off with one that was pretty easy to put together: my favorite photos of 2008. Many many more pictures that I’ve taken are available on my Flickr account – you have to have a username to have a […]

The International Women’s Health Coalition’s new website

December 18th, 2008 at 12:13 pm

At the International Women’s Health Coalition (where I’m now the program officer for online communications and campaigns, in case you missed that post), we’re starting to roll out new webby goodness, starting with a redesigned website and a video series. In the new year we’ll also be adding a blog, an audio podcast, and we’ll […]

Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers: My Speech from the NYC Vigil

December 17th, 2008 at 7:30 pm

This is the speech I gave at the International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers vigil in Washington Square at 7 pm on December 17, information pills 2008. Every year I come to this event, and every year, in the hour before the vigil, I seriously consider not showing up, because it’s hard to […]

Geeky Gothy Road Trip: Salem, MA

December 15th, 2008 at 3:45 am

This weekend I took a much needed road trip with my most excellent of travel pals, Eliyanna (who used to be my co-executive editor at $pread). We’ve also had fun traveling together on my 2007 summer East Coast book tour, and this past summer we went to Amsterdam together. We’ve also done a variety of […]

Sex Work Awareness & the Calendar: Outreach, Fundraising, and Public Education

December 6th, 2008 at 1:44 pm

Producing a calendar for a fundraising project is not a new idea – it’s tried and true, and it conveniently means that there’s an actual product so there’s a tangible answer to “what do I get?,” a question that people getting friendly with a new organization are justified in asking (also, the end of the […]

Uncharacteristically Social: $pread Dance Party and Jen Dziura’s Man-Pageant

December 4th, 2008 at 12:02 am

I spend a lot of my weekend evenings home alone by myself. It’s mostly intentional – I don’t like loud crowded parties, I prefer to have intense conversations with a small number of people instead of surface conversations with people who I can’t hear very well. But I also don’t get a lot of invitations […]

Liabilities and Assets (things go pop and fizz)

December 3rd, 2008 at 3:23 am

I said it in the comments on my last post, but it’s worth repeating here: thanks very very much for your supportive comments, emails, tweets and other internetty messages. The outpouring of support and sharing of like (and unlike, but resonating) experiences is a good reminder that digital intimacy can be great stuff. I felt […]
