Sins Invalid: An Unshamed Claim to Beauty in the Face of Invisibility

Harvest Greetings! Are you looking for a way to support your soul, whet your political voice, and meet cool folks? Are you interested in fun, healing, and moving performance workshops? Then join us for a :

Nomy Lamm Performing for Sins Invalid in September 2008 Fall Workshop: Singing Your Passion
with singer/songwriter Nomy Lamm
WHEN: Sunday, Nov.
16th, 1:30-3:30pm
WHERE: 2781 24th St.
, San Francisco, CA 94110 [view map]
COST: Free!

Every voice is important and deserves to be heard! Learn to access the physical and energetic components of your voice. Breathe, stretch, open and listen to what comes out without judgment. Hear your own voice in community with others who are learning to give voice to their truths. This workshop is playful, experimental, and open to all levels – especially people who are afraid to sing or have been told they "can't.

Nomy Lamm is a writer, musician and activist whose work has been featured in magazines (Ms., Punk Planet, Make/Shift), anthologies (Listen Up, Body Outlaws, and most recently Word Warriors and Working Sex, all on Seal Press), and onstage in theaters, universities and nightclubs all over the US. She has toured with Sister Spit (1999), the Sex Workers Art Show (2005), and the cabaret showcase Dr. Frockrocket's Menagerie and Medicine Show (2001). She has released two solo albums (Anthem, 1999 on Talent Show, and Effigy, 2002 on Yoyo Recordings) and co-wrote, co-produced and performed in "The Transfused", a post-apocalyptic rock opera about multi-gendered animal-human hybrids, in 2000. She teaches voice lessons, and is currently working on her first novel, The Best Part Comes After the End.

Our workshops are open to anyone who is interested in exploring the intersection of sexuality and disability, regardless of prior experience in movement or writing. Workshop participants are encouraged to investigate their intersecting identities within the social justice framework. If space becomes limited, we will prioritize participants who identify as having a disability.

Spring 2008 Workshop participants said:

"I loved learning new words and ways of moving. Thank you for sharing your power, grace, and heart. You remind us to love ourselves just as we are.
"The music, energy and intention was definitely felt — many thanks!"

"Tongue Rhythm inspired and joyed me.
