Because of your support, I am able to participate in more advocacy beyond my bedroom! I am excited to announce #BedFest, in conjunction with Harvard Ted Talk star Jen Brea's organization MEAction. We are getting submissions of people performing from bed from all over the world, and it is bringing tears to my eyes! We hope it will help people connect beyond our boxed-in bedrooms, beyond our boxed-in identities, beyond our boxed-in narrow experiences or privilege, and beyond our boxed-in little diagnoses. We are working with former lead organizers of ActUP from the AIDS movement of the 90s, who have mentioned that this epidemic of Chronic Fatigue, Lyme, etc. is tricky and devastating like AIDS (but not the same!) because of the lack of government and mainstream medical institutional support.
Also excited to remind you that I will be premiering a professional video of this song, Thorns, at the end of the week of action in May! The video is beautifully produced by filmmaker and drummer Sam Price Waldman!! Can't wait to show you all a sneak peak next month!! And then of course, the...drumroll....EP "Hi From Pillows" in its re-mixed and re-mastered glory will be released to the public at the verrrrry beginning of June! I'm buoyed completely by VOLUNTEERS with Local Woman Records who are working tirelessly in promotion, recording, mastering, playing, filming, and writing to bring this music to the world so that I can use all the money I get from you all to just keep my body working by paying the medical bills! So things are slower going but realllly kicking up momentum next month! Yay! Thank you!
