I’ll be bouncing around a lot this fall and I’d love to see you. BelowĀ are the major cities I’m going to in the next few weeks. We can call this theĀ Let’s Be Friends! Tour, Fall 2014 Edition.

This is something that I get asked about on a regular basis. I’m generally reluctant to announce the performances/speaking gigs I’m doing beforehand, because the nature of what I do online leads to plenty of detractors. In the past, when I’ve promoted that I’d be keynotingĀ a conference or performing my show, there has occasionally been backlash from some of these groups. That said, I’ve decided the positives outweigh the negatives. And the haters, well, they gonna hate. That’s just the way it is.

Below areĀ the broad details of some of the placesĀ I’ll be performing my showĀ orĀ speakingĀ this fall.Ā If you want to set something up while I’m there, get in touch super fast. I’d love to do additional shows, am happy to do coffee meet-ups, book-related things, an in-person interview, or just to say “Hi!” IRL. Frealz.

New: It’s Pronounced Chitown

its-pronounced-chicago
I’ll be making a short stop in my hometown in the middle of October. I’ll be doing some gendery stuff, an IPM show, and scheduling some meetings.

Though it’s going quick, I still have a bunch ofĀ extra time for:

  • Additional shows / formal bookings, interviews
  • Informal pop-insĀ to orgs / businesses to say hi and wax social justice for an hour or so
  • Chicago Diner Dining (it’s been too long, and word on the street is they may have some signage I want to check out)

It’s Pronounced New Yohk City

its-pronounced-nyc
I’ll be in NYC [at least] twice this fall. First time:Ā the week of Monday, August 18. The second trip is the second week in October. I’ll be there doing IPM shows at a few schools, popping into bookstores, and some other gendery stuff.

At this point, I have someĀ extra time for:

  • Additional shows / formal bookings, interviews
  • Informal pop-insĀ to orgs / businesses to say hi and wax social justice for an hour or so
  • Bagels (I take mine with hummus, please)

It’s Pronounced C-Attle

its-pronounced-seattle

I find myself in Seattle/Tacoma area so much and I’m not even a little bit mad. I’ll be there the first week of September. And have aĀ wiggling, tingling sensation I’ll be back later in the fall. (Oh, and if you got that “c-attle” joke, let’s be friends)

At this point, I haveĀ a bunchĀ ofĀ extra time for:

  • Additional shows / formal bookings, interviews
  • Informal pop-insĀ to orgs / businesses to say hi and wax social justice for an hour or so
  • Coffee snobbery (I know this place that has anĀ amazingĀ house blend you have to try)

It’s Pronounced Hooston

its-pronounced-houston

I rarely get to do anything in the south, let alone in my now-home-state Texas, so this is exciting for me. I’ll be in HoustonĀ the first week of October doing a few IPM shows. The dates are flexible, so this trip can easily be bookended with additional shows / talks.

At this point, I haveĀ a bunchĀ ofĀ extra time for:

  • Additional shows / formal bookings, interviews
  • Informal pop-insĀ to orgs / businesses to say hi and wax social justice for an hour or so
  • Line dancing (as long as I can wear my leopard print pants)

It’s Pronounced Dez Moynez

its-pronounced-des-moines

(Actually, it’s not. But when I was a kid I may have thought it was) I’m more excited to go back to Des Moines than you will likely believe, which is why I’m including it in my major cities (asteism unintended). I’llĀ be there in NovemberĀ keynoting a pretty awesome conferenceĀ (as well as visiting my heart after I left it there last spring).

At this point, I haveĀ someĀ extra time for:

  • Informal pop-insĀ to orgs / businesses to say hi and wax social justice for an hour or so
  • Interviews or book signings
  • Doing monk stuff (you’ll be ableĀ to inform me what this might be, I hope, considering you’re the city of it)

I hope to see some of you on the road!

This whole “telling people where I’m gonna be and hoping they’ll want to meet me in real life and talk about stuff” experiment went better than I would have ever guessed when I was in the Middle East this past summer. I met some wonderful people — people who I won’t be forgetting, and would be sad now if I had to un-know — all through the magic of the internet. The internet isn’t always bad. Let’s make the most of it.

See you this fall,
