Mark Björstrom a director and volunteer of SKIP Provincetown’s Soup Kitchen talks to Roger Walker-Dack about the work of the organization and the significant impact it makes on the greatly reduced number of residents in Town in the winter season.
Its been some 17 years since Del Shores’s movie Sordid Lives played for a record-breaking 96 weeks at the Palm Springs Movie Theater. Mainstream audiences elsewhere may have dismissed the movie all too quickly, but it wasn’t long before it became a beloved gay cult classic that even spurned a prequel TV series.
The plot is of course preposterous, but anyway its quite inconsequential and just a set-up for these larger-than-life characters to be outrageously rude to each other in the most hilarious fashion.
Iin6.org literally takes its name from the estimated number of men who were victims of sexual abuse or assault when they were young. With its support network, it sets out to help survivors live happier and healthier lives. One of 1in6.org founding Board Members David Lisak, a psychologist and photographer, launched the “Bristlecone Project: Portraits of Male Survivors,” that covers just a few hundred of the men as a collaborative awareness initiative, and when the Exhibit came to P Town for the day, he sat down and talked to Roger Walker-Dack all about it.
When Grammy Award Winner singer/songwriter Matt Alber was in P.Town again to perform at The Crown & Anchor during Bear Week to a community that consider him something of an iconic performer, he stopped by to talk to Roger Walker-Dackfor ‘queerguru reports’ on PTV’s Channel 99.
Although the conversation started off about his music, it soon moved on to Matt’s latest passion : a new documentary TV series called Room To Grow which advocates for LGBTQ youth. The 8 part series that he created with filmmaker Jon Garcia is due to released free on the Web this December. More information about the project can be found at moreroomtogrow.org .
The interview was filmed by Hussein Wentz in the home he shares with his husband Andy Wentz.
The can be no more perfect way to start any weekend than having breakfast with the deliciously funny Emmy Award Winner Leslie Jordan. He is here in P Town with his brand new show EXPOSED at the Crown & Anchor to kick off the annual Bear Week. He met with queerguru to ostensibly talk about show, but he also delighted us by throwing some outrageous shade about some of the people he comes across in his rather manic jam-packed life.
He is unquestionably one of the nicest Southern white trash gentleman we ever have had the pleasure of sharing some time with. He spilt lots of beans too, so if you want to know if he’ll be back to taunt his nemesis Karen Walker watch the interview below. Then go beg, steal or borrow to get a ticket to go see him perform ……NewYork beckons after P Town…. and you can his Tour schedule at http://www.thelesliejordan.com/
