# Speaking Parts Reading Tue Aug 13, 8-10 pm Free Everyone welcome
M. Christian's erotica has always pushed boundaries and redefined the way we think of sex stories. He's written S/M, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and yes, even heterosexual and vanilla stories. We love his latest collection, Speaking Parts, which brings all his lesbian fiction together in one volume. Join us to hear him read from this collection of lesbian fables -- it's full of lush passionate femmes, tough-yet-tender butches, and women of almost every stripe.

"This is What Democracy Looks Like" is a from-the-streets account of the 1999 anti-WTO protests in Seattle. The film's vision and scope was made possible by a remarkable act of collaborative filmmaking wherein directors Jill Freidberg and Rick Rowley utilized the footage of over 100 video activists. With a soundtrack by Rage Against the Machine, DJ Shadow, and Cypher Ad, and narration by Susan Sarandon and Michael Franti "This is What Democracy Looks Like" is an intense political and emotional account of a week that changed the world.
