Out and Proud
09/13/2019 7:05pm

Petersburg pride festival celebrates LGBTQ community and fundraises for Tri-Cities Pride Inc. A few pieces of paper work thats all that stands between Mikey Fuller and Tri Cities Pride, Inc., becoming an official non-profit organization. Based in Petersburg, Tri-Cities Pride looks to empower the local LGBTQ community while proudly educating the city on what it means to be LGBTQ.This weekend, Fuller, the president of the organization, is helping to continue that mission with the third Petersburg Out and Proud Festival. The fundraiser kicks off Friday at DJs Rajun Cajun & Steakhouse before the all-day Saturday event including live music, drag shows, food and drink specials and free HIV testing on Nationzs mobile unit.The grand finale takes place on Monday in Hopewell with a MonGays pop-up movie screening of The Gospel According to Andre at Guncotton Coffee and Gallery.Proceeds will be donated to Tri-Cities Pride and go toward aiding LGBTQ kids whove been kicked out of their house and establishing a network to help LGBTQ discrimination in schools. The organization started three years ago with a conversation among friends sitting around, complaining about how little understanding there was in Petersburg communities about LGBTQ people. They wanted to make their voices heard. But for Fuller, the journey began years before, when he was fired from being a church organist in 2009 in Colonial Heights for being gay. Ive basically been on the podium for saying how wrong that decision was, Fuller says. We started the Petersburg Out and Proud Festival as means of community education to show, Hey, were here.The Petersburg group has since expanded to almost 40 members who get together frequently. Fuller emphasizes that this wouldnt be possible without the organizations nine-person board, a little elbow grease, the pride committee and community support. I hope it shows that Richmond isnt the only place you can be proud, Fuller says. You can come to Petersburg and be out and proud. You can go over to our MonGays celebration on Monday night in Hopewell and be proud.Out and Proud 2019 takes place on Saturday, Sept. 14 from noon to 1 a.m. at 309 N. Sycamore St. in Petersburg.

ARIES March 21-April 19 Hi, Im your sales representative for UnTherapy, a free program designed to provide healing strategies for people who are trying too hard. Forgive me for being blunt, but I think you could benefit from our services. I dont have space here to reveal all the secrets of UnTherapy, but heres an essential hint: every now and then the smartest way to outwit a problem is to stop worrying, let it alone, and allow it to solve itself.TAURUS April 20-May 20People in Northeast India weave long, strong suspension bridges out of the living roots of fig trees. The structures can measure up to 150 feet and bear the weight of hundreds of people. In accordance with astrological omens, lets make these marvels your metaphors of power for the coming weeks. To stimulate your meditations, ask yourself the following questions. 1. How can you harness nature to help you to get where you need to go 2. How might you transform instinctual energy so that it better serves your practical needs 3. How could you channel wildness so that it becomes eminently useful to youGEMINI May 21-June 20If you climb to the top of Mt. Everest, youre standing on land that was once on the floor of a shallow tropical sea. Four-hundred-million-year-old fossils of marine life still abide there in the rock. Over the course of eons, through the magic of plate tectonics, that low flat land got folded and pushed upwards more than five miles. I suspect you Geminis will have the power to accomplish a less spectacular but still amazing transformation during the next ten months. To get started, identify what you would like that transformation to be.CANCER June 21-July 22In 1996, when Gary Kasparov was rated the worlds best chess player, he engaged in a series of matches with a chess-playing computer named Deep Blue. Early on in the first game, Deep Blue tried a move that confused Kasparov. Rattled, he began to wonder if the machine was smarter than him. Ultimately, his play suffered and he lost the game. Later it was revealed that Deep Blues puzzling move was the result of a bug in its code. Ill encourage you to cultivate a benevolent bug in your own code during the coming weeks, Cancerian. I bet it will be the key to you scoring a tricky victory.LEO July 23-Aug. 22American hero Harriet Tubman escaped slavery as a young woman. She ran away from the wealthy master who claimed to own her, and reached sanctuary. But rather than simply enjoy her freedom, she dedicated herself to liberating other slaves. Nineteen times she returned to enemy territory and risked her life, ultimately leading 300 people out of hellish captivity. Later she served as a scout, spy, and nurse in the Union Army during the Civil War, where her actions saved another 700 people. In 1874, the U.S. Congress considered but then ultimately rejected a bill to pay her $2,000 for her numerous courageous acts. Dont you dare be like Congress in the coming weeks, Leo. Its crucial that you give tangible acknowledgment and practical rewards to those who have helped, guided, and supported you.VIRGO Aug. 23-Sept. 22Novelist Wallace Stegner wrote, Some are born in their place, some find it, some realize after long searching that the place they left is the one they have been searching for. I hope that in the last nine months, Virgo, you have resolved which of those three options is true for you. I also trust that you have been taking the necessary actions to claim and own that special placeto acknowledge it and treasure it as the power spot where you feel most at home in the world. If you have not yet fully finished what Im describing here, do it now.LIBRA Sept. 23-Oct. 22Earths species are going extinct at a rate unmatched since the dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago. Among the creatures on the verge of being lost forever are birds like the cryptic treehunter and spixs macaw, as well as the northern white rhino and the vaquita, a type of porpoise. So why dont we clone the last few individuals of those beleaguered species Here are the answers. 1. Cloned animals typically arent healthy. 2. A species needs a sizable population to retain genetic diversity a few individuals arent sufficient. 3. Humans have decimated the homes of the threatened species, making it hard for them to thrive. Conclusion: Cloning is an inadequate stopgap action. Is there a better way to address the problem Yes: by preserving the habitats of wild creatures. Inspired by this principle, Libra, I ask you to avoid trying halfway fixes for the dilemmas in your personal sphere. Summon full measures that can really work.SCORPIO Oct. 23-Nov. 21Though patched together and incomplete, the 2,200-year-old marble sculpture known as the Winged Victory of Samothrace is prominently displayed at Pariss Louvre Museum. Its a glorious depiction of Nike, the winged goddess of victory, and is regarded as one of ancient Greeces great masterpieces. For hundreds of years it was missing. Then in 1863, an archaeologist discovered it, although it was broken into more than a hundred pieces. Eventually, it was rebuilt, and much of its beauty was resurrected. I see the coming weeks as a time when you, too, could recover the fragments of an old treasure and begin reassembling it to make a pretty good restoration.SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22-Dec. 21Ive learned that I must find positive outlets for anger or it will destroy me, said actor Sidney Poitier. That can be a dynamic meditation for you during the next three weeks. I think you will derive substantial power from putting it into action. If youre ingenious and diligent about finding those positive outlets, your anger will generate constructive and transformative results.CAPRICORN Dec. 22-Jan. 19In 1905, at the age of 30, Lucy Maud Montgomery wrote the novel Anne of Green Gables. It was a tale about an orphan girl growing up on Prince Edward Island. She sent the manuscript to several publishers, all of whom rejected it. Discouraged, she put it away in a hatbox and stored it in a closet. But two years later, her ambitions reignited when she re-read the story. Again she mailed it to prospective publishers, and this time one liked it enough to turn it into a book. It soon became a bestseller. Since then it has sold over 50 million copies and been translated into 36 languages. I figure you Capricorns are at a point in your own unfolding thats equivalent to where Anne was shortly before she rediscovered the manuscript shed put away in the hatbox.AQUARIUS Jan. 20-Feb. 18The Toxorhynchites are species of large mosquitoes that dont buzz around our heads while were trying to sleep and will never bite our skin or suck our blood. In fact, theyre our benefactors. Their larvae feast on the larvae of the mosquitoes that are bothersome to us. In accordance with astrological omens, I propose that you be alert for a metaphorically comparable influence in your own life: a helper or ally that might be in disguise or may just superficially seem to be like an adversary.PISCES Feb. 19-March 20Audre Lord identified herself as a black writer, lesbian, librarian, mother, feminist, civil rights activist, and many other descriptors. But as ardent as she was in working for the political causes she was passionate about, she didnt want to be pigeonholed in a single identity. One of her central teachings was to celebrate all the different parts of herself. Only by learning to live in harmony with your contradictions can you keep it all afloat, she testified. These approaches should be especially fun and extra meaningful for you in the coming weeks, Pisces. I encourage you to throw a big Unity Party for all the different people you are.

A Post-Nuclear Family

Though long, the Tony-winning musical Falsettos is still in fighting form. When it first hit Broadway in 1992, Falsettos appeared like a rocket ship from the future. At a time when Pat Robertson was warning at the Republican National Convention that Bill Clinton would appoint homosexuals to his administration and the World Health Organization was declassifying homosexuality as a mental illness, here was a musical about a man leaving his wife and child for another man while trying to maintain a tight-knit family.Groundbreaking as much for its form as its content, bridging Broadway spectacle with off-Broadway candor, Falsettos was a breath of fresh air on the Great White Way.But does this AIDS-era musical still resonate in an age when families are what you make of them and Modern Family is entering its 11th season As staged at Richmond Triangle Players, the answer is largely yes.Beginning in 1979 in New York, Falsettos focuses on Marvin Matt Shofner, a gay man who wants to maintain his traditional family while adding his lover Whizzer Durron Marquis Tyre to the mix. Marvins wife Trina Casey Payne is trying to deal with the messy aftermath of Marvins decisions, as is their 10-year-old, chess-obsessed son Jason Rowan Sharma. As if there wasnt enough going on already, Mendel Dan Cimo who somehow becomes everyones psychiatrist harbors an intense attraction to Trina.From the shows galloping opening number Four Jews in a Room Bitching onwards, its clear that William Finn and James Lapines Tony-winning musical is still in fighting form. Packed with ideas and surprises, this kvetch fest is frequently funny and more sweet and sour than a Chinese feast on Christmas.The cast is uniformly solid throughout and sings beautifully, with Shofner personalizing his egotistical protagonist, Tyre giving voice to his characters needs in The Games I Play and Cimo developing Mendel from a work-obsessed bachelor to family man. Rowan Sharma plays Jason naturally, and Paynes performance of Im Breaking Down is already a highlight of this young theater season. Rounding out the cast, Kelsey Cordrey and Rachel Marrs are equally engaging as the lesbian couple next-door who are sucked into the family dynamic.Backing the cast is Natan Berenstheyns band, which sounds fuller than youd think a three-piece would, and Jonathan Sparks sound design balances the musicians and singers so you can catch all of Finns witty lyrics. Michael Jarretts lighting and Sheila Russ costumes work well, but Kevin Johnsons drab gray set decorated with picture frames is a dud. Its unclear what the frames are supposed to symbolize, and the backdrop is just plain ugly.Theres much to love with director and choreographer Debra Clintons staging, but I had a hard time investing emotionally in this show of personal and familial growth. Despite the many elements that work, the show sags under its two-hour-and-40-minute running time. Though it left me cold emotionally, perhaps Im not the best judge. By the close of opening night, many in the audience were wiping away tears. Falsettos plays through Oct. 5 at Richmond Triangle Players, 1300 Altamont Ave. For information, visit rtriangle.org or call 346-8113.
