Just up on the Readings page: Dates in Albany, off-site AWP events in Chicago.


That’s my friend Christopher Connelly wearing a shirt given to us by friends and fellow Albanyians, Marshall Miller and Dorian Solot, sex and relationship educators at I Love Female Orgasm. Dorian was our doula when Miriam was born, and from the outset of finding out what she and her partner did, I told them I needed, needed, an I Heart Female Orgasm shirt.

Chris Connelly steps into the picture when, visiting us from the city, he needs a shirt for a night out on the town. This is the shirt he picks to borrow. Every bar we went to–the Palais Royale, Bombers, the Lark Tavern–female bartenders bought him a drink. Female bartenders in Albany, it turns out, agree with the t-shirt’s sentiments.
