Cookie at Kansas University Medical Centre
I just got back from KUMC where I performed Cookie for a packed and enthusiastic audience. Here I'm dancing near the end of the show with a biochemistry professor who dipped me almost to the ground. This was part of their diversity presentations. There are no out GLBT students at the school and it is unconstitutional for queer folk to marry in Kansas. They continue, however, to be patents.
Almost everyone in the room raised thier hand when I asked them if they knew anyone gay. Things are so so much better than the media makes you think. I told them I want to be watching "little channel of regular people" which is, I guess, what this b/vlog and the Net are becoming. But Kansas still does have it's issues, like the fact that there;s a real debate over teaching evolution in the states schools. My host their told me that 70% of the Kansas population is in KC Lawrence and Wichita and it's the 30% with more land in rural areas that have the political sway because of districting.
I love baking Cookies for the red states.
