Coming Out Monologues at WOU
Monday, April 29, 2019
7:30pm - 9:30pm

On Monday, April 29, I invite and encourage you to attend The Coming Out Monologues, a collection of coming out stories authored and performed by Western Oregon University students, alumni, faculty, and staff. These stories are funny, poignant, serious, heartbreaking, embarrassing, creative, painful, and hopeful—in other words, they are a representation of the diverse and unique experiences of people who identify within the LGBTQ+ community and/or as straight allies.

This year’s monologues carry extra significance to me and to this community, in part because they come on the heels of an example of bigoted vandalism to a class project my students are doing to raise awareness of gender and sexuality studies on campus. For those of you who do not know, someone posted a swastika to my students’ gender studies bulletin board project last week, in what we can only assume is an attempt to silence my students. Though this certainly impacted the sense of a safe learning environment in the classroom, it has not deterred these students at all. They are disappointed and mad, but they are also motivated and empowered to continue this work and to do so in ways that are louder and fiercer.

This experience has also highlighted for me and for my students the need for allies within and outside the LGBTQ+ community to continue to show up and to be actively and vocally supportive. Through hard work and years of dedication, WOU continues to strive to be a welcoming and inclusive campus. But this experience from my classroom also shows that WOU exists in the real world, a world in which bigoted folks feel increasingly emboldened to engage in hateful speech. If we want to continue to move in the direct of unconditional affirmation and love, we have to continue to do the work of showing up, offering support, and creating spaces where people feel comfortable to express the truth of their lives. The Coming Out Monologues is a great example of what that space can be: open, affirming, loving, funny, painful, creative, and so incredibly beautiful.

I encourage you to show up and help us create and recreate safe spaces for our LGBTQ+ community. The information for the Coming Out Monologues event and for a pre-event reception sponsored by LGBTQ+ alumni is included below. You are invited to both and encouraged to bring friends!

These are the storytellers we are featuring (and some of the lines from them):

Students:
Aeron Esch, “I went from identifying as a lesbian to identifying as bisexual, back to lesbian, to panromantic demisexual, and, finally, to pansexual panromantic.”
Hannah Bachelor, “At sixteen years old, I was dragged out of the closet.”
Hannah Hardcastle, “For a long time, I’ve identified as “game,” as in: “I’m game,”
Maria Becerra, “I remember being in fourth grade, 9 years old, a tomboy, … and telling my mom innocently one day after school, “Ama, pienso que Adriana es muy hermosa, me encantan sus ojos. Tal vez algun dia me case con ella.” (Ma, I think Adriana is so pretty, I really like her eyes, maybe one day I’ll marry her.)
Max Groshong, “I was forced to face my own mortality. This, above all, is what pushed me to truly start living every day as if it could be my last and I had to start by being honest with myself and my family.”
Tyler Martin, “My grandpa said that I was never meant to be a boy and that any doctor who would prescribe me testosterone was practicing child abuse.”

Alumni/Staff:
Annika Joy Barnett, “Being queer, femme and married to a cishet man...is going to queer spaces and getting stares, it’s pulling back my hair to show my undercut, in hopes that it clues people in.”

Staff:
Chad A. Ludwig, “I came out to my mom over the phone. I typed a message by saying, “Mom – I am gay.”
Chrys Burcham, “My Dad, a military vet who continues to carry himself with a marine’s posture and whose voice barks like a drill sergeant, looked me straight in the eye and pointedly asked, “Do you like womyn?”
Rebecca Chiles, “Kelli said, “You are sweet on her, aren’t you Queer?” This absolutely filled me with terror. No one had ever called me out before.”

First Friday Art Walk featuring Jorge Martinez
Friday, May 4, 2018
5:30pm - 8:00pm

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJEd6WFwQj0

Please join Pacific University in the First Friday Art Walk! Students and artists from around Lane County will be featured at the Downtown Eugene campus, including Eugene's own Jorge Martinez! Jorge is the first Deaf artist to be featured at Pacific University, so let's show our full support!

Jorge's exhibition will be unique, as his artist's statement will be recorded in American Sign Language (ASL) with an English voice over and captions. Additionally, his artist statement will be translated into Lingua de Senas Mexicana (LSM) with a voice over in Spanish and captions. This method provides access to a large variety of art enthusiasts!

Fast facts:

Q: Who can come?
A: Anyone! It is free and open to the public. You do not have to be a student at Pacific to attend the event

Q: When is the event?
A: Friday, May 4th. Drop in hours from 5:30-8:00pm. Jorge will be there the full time

Q: Will there be an ASL interpreter?
A: Yes, for Jorge. Unfortunately we were only able to reserve one for him and not for other Deaf/HH guests who want to look at other exhibits. I'm sorry! :(

Q: This is the same time as Sign and Dine!
A: First, that is not a question. Second, yes it is the same time, but considering this is a drop in event, you could say hi to Jorge, then go out to eat at Dickie Joes. Or you could get a burger and then go say hi to Jorge.

Q: I am blind. How can I enjoy Jorge's artwork?
A: Jorge's artist statement recording includes a voice over image description in English and in Spanish of the pictures on display.

Q: I use a wheelchair. Is Pacific's campus accessible?
A: Yes, there is an elevator. Call the main office (541) 485-6812 for directions on how to access the elevator.

Q: Hablo español solamente ¿Puedo venir también?
A: ¡Sí! La declaración del artista de Jorge está grabada en español.

Q: Is there other art I can look at other than at Pacific University?
A: Yes! Other stops include Framing & Gallery (411 W 4th Ave), The Lincoln Gallery (309 W 4th Ave), The New Zone Gallery (220 W 8th Ave),MAVEN (271 W 8th Ave), and Passionflower Design (128 E Broadway).

(Portland) Self-defense for People with Different Abilities
Sunday, April 22, 2018
2:00pm - 5:00pm

ASL Interpreted

Designed for people with diverse needs and abilities, we begin the class with a listening session that prioritizes the safety concerns of the participants and guides the topics to be covered during the workshop. We understand that the topic of self-defense can be triggering for anyone who has experienced trauma from bullying, harassment, or assault and that the rates of violence are higher for people with diverse abilities and needs; therefore, we prioritize self-care and creating a space that is safe and inclusive to learning. Participants are empowered to choose techniques and strategies that best suit their bodies and life style. We offer a range of topics such as self-care, deescalation; strategies to stop and interrupt harassment and bullying; assertive communication, identifying healthy and unhealthy behaviors; street smarts; and physical self-defense skills. Sessions are led by facilitators who have years of experience teaching self-defense skills to people of all backgrounds, genders and ages. Workshops incorporate best practices in teaching and facilitation and include role plays and scenarios.

2.5 Minute Ride, interpreted performance
Friday, February 2, 2018
7:30pm - 9:00pm

"2.5 Minute Mile" by Lisa Kron

Starring Allison Mickelson (Last seen as “Alison Bechdel” in Fun Home at Portland Center Stage!)

Lisa invites you on the Kron family “vacation” to Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio. You see, in spite of near-blindness, diabetes and a heart condition, Lisa’s 74-year-old father Walter insists on yearly trips to the world capital of roller coasters. But this isn’t the only journey they take together. Lisa also accompanies him to Auschwitz, where his parents were killed, and where she comes to understand more clearly the joys and sorrows of her father’s heart. A complex and searingly funny meditation on how human beings make sense of tragedy, grief, and everyday life.

Interpreted by Dot Hearn; understudy & preparation team is Kassie Hughes

“Wonderfully evocative and often seriously funny, [Kron] sets off emotional vibrations that just won’t stop.“ –Ben Brantley, New York Times

“One of the most tender and discerning family tragicomedies in recent memory.” –Linda Winer, New York Newsday

Weaving Women Together - interpreted performance
Wednesday, January 24, 2018
7:30pm - 8:45pm

A Portland Playhouse production

"Weaving Women Together"
Written and performed By Nikki Weaver
Directed By Gretchen Corbett
http://www.portlandplayhouse.org/weavingwomen

General admission; tickets $20.

In October 2015, Nikki Weaver sent a letter to 60 women - some she knew and some she didn’t - requesting a piece of fabric and an explanation of its sentimental value. The result is Weaving Women Together, an entirely female-driven piece about the loss of Weaver’s mother and how she has collected her in other women, and a magic skirt made entirely of the tales - and fabric - shared by these women.

Interpreter: Dot Hearn; understudy & preparation team Carolyn Brockway

ASL Night in Salem
Sunday, October 22, 2017
5:00pm - 6:30pm

This is a 10 week event (until December) held on Sundays from 5pm-6pm (ish) and is lead by Rian Gayle!

In this course, we are moving past the mundane (father, mother... etc) and academic signs and are diving right into the social and colorful aspects of ASL!

You will be learning how to translate popular English sayings, use common responses and questions, and even sign to music! That means you are also expected to already know or practice the alphabet and numbers. You can find them here: https://youtu.be/tkMg8g8vVUo
https://youtu.be/hFCXyB6q2nU

If there are certain signs you want to know, just ask Rian after class and he will be happy to show you.

So grab a glass of cider and prepare to have some fun with ASL.

** Reminder that Salsa Sunday Lessons begin at 7pm, so hey, just stay and learn it all.

This course if for students 21+
Outside food is welcome.

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is currently in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square (Monday, October 16– Sunday, October 22) with our Forced From Home exhibition.

Forced From Home is a free interactive exhibition designed to expose the realities of the global refugee crisis. More than 65 million people are now displaced worldwide, including refugees and asylum seekers whose lives are further endangered by policies that deny them protection. With experienced Doctors Without Borders aid workers leading the tour, visitors engage with stories and materials gathered from refugee camps, sea rescue missions, and emergency medical projects around the world. Guests will gain a deeper understanding of the challenges facing people who have been forced from home, and of humanitarian efforts to help them.

We would love to invite the deaf and hard of hearing community to join us as we have hired an ASL interpreter for the 10 a.m. tour on Saturday, October 21st. This is completely free and open to the public!

"95 Theses"
Rev. Scott Rudolph
500 years ago in October, 1517, Martin Luther nailed 95 Theses to the door of All Saints' Church, Wittenberg, Germany and started the Protestant Reformation. He was protesting practices of the Church and looking for justice. Our world today is still in need of reformation and justice. We will gather around these ideas in worship rather than nail them to the front door.

An Evening with Sean Berdy at PCC
Tuesday, October 24, 2017
6:30pm - 8:30pm

Link: https://seanberdy.ticketleap.com/pcc/

An Evening with Sean Berdy is an inspirational and humorous journey through Sean's life. Berdy, best known for his 5-year portrayal of the "Deaf James Dean" character, Emmett, on Switched at Birth, strives to inspire others by using his own compelling life story as an example of what one can achieve if they never stop believing in themselves and refuse to let others define their limitations.

Fans of Sean’s ASL music videos will also be happy to know he will be performing one of his favorite songs at the event. Following Sean’s inspirational presentation and musical performance, he will open the floor to questions and then close the evening with an opportunity to personally say hello and perhaps snap a fun picture or two.

Sean's presentation, Q&A, and Meet & Greet will all be sign-to-voice interpreted.

NOTE: Please purchase your tickets online now. Tickets will NOT be sold at the door.

An Evening with Sean Berdy is part of Sean's ASL Champions Tour. Proceeds for the event will be shared with this event's ASL Champion and gracious host, Portland Community College's Sign Language Interpretation program. Thank you for supporting this wonderful program!

RESTRICTIONS
Event attendees are kindly asked not to record videos or take pictures during the presentation. There will be an opportunity to take a photo with Sean following the Q&A portion of the event. Thank you!

Every Brilliant Thing - interpreted performance
Thursday, October 12, 2017
7:30pm - 8:35pm

"Every Brilliant Thing"
By Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe
Starring Isaac Lamb
Directed by Rose Riordan

A kid makes a list for his mom. A list of everything worth living for in the world. He needs her to read the list so she doesn’t try to leave the world again. As the kid grows up and experiences more life, more love, and more loss, his list of every brilliant thing gets longer and more vital with each addition. Duncan Macmillan’s play shines hilarious and compassionate light in dark corners of the human condition, and the way in which the creators have constructed the performance is refreshingly theatrical. A reminder that hope is never truly lost, and a testament to the healing power of storytelling.

Fun Home - interpreted performance
Thursday, October 5, 2017
7:30pm

"Fun Home" - the musical
Music by Jeanine Tesori; Book and Lyrics by Lisa Kron
Based on the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel
Directed by Chris Coleman

Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Musical of 2015!

Based on Alison Bechdel’s witty and wistful illustrated autobiography of the same name, the Tony Award-winning musical Fun Home ushers us inside Alison’s head — at three different ages — as she struggles to process the chain of childhood events that made her the adult she is today. Growing up in a funeral home as the closeted lesbian daughter of a father with secrets of his own was complicated. But by looking back on her family life, and remembering all the loving, silly, and even shameful moments, she learns to see her parents — and herself — for who they really are.

The Merry Wives of Windsor: Sign Interpreted at OSF
Friday, July 21, 2017
8:00pm - 11:00pm

Big-city guile meets small-town wiles
Sir John Falstaff—Prince Hal’s amoral drinking buddy from the Henry IVs—and his entourage are wearing out their welcome in Windsor. The quiet little burg isn’t big enough for his antics and appetites, especially when he sets his lecherous sights on Mistresses Page and Ford and their money. Meanwhile, Mistress Page’s winsome daughter, Anne, is under romantic siege from several local admirers. It’s a hilarious battle of wits as the merry wives and their neighbors go to town on Falstaff and try to make rubes of him and his city slickers.

The hero’s journey home
The Trojan War is over, but Odysseus has not returned. Back home, his wife Penelope, plagued by suitors, promises to remarry as soon as she has finished her husband’s shroud—which she unravels every night. Meanwhile, Odysseus is stranded on islands, caught in storms, trapped by a Cyclops and a sorceress, and impeded by other monsters and gods. Will he ever make it home to his wife and fatherless son? Adapter and director Mary Zimmerman (Guys and Dolls, The White Snake) weaves her own spell on Homer’s classic tale of adventure, trials and steadfast love.

"The Risks of Principle #4 – and Possibly a Few Others…" - Rev. Antonia Won, speaker
The 4th Principle of Unitarian Universalism affirms the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. We are living in a crossed-up world where truth and lies, facts and falsehoods and especially fear are being traded for profit –- and religion is caught in the middle of it all. As people of a liberal faith tradition, what are we called to in times like this? If we promote tolerance, what is asked of us now?

In this inquisitive new drama, a family grapples with the difference between a life lived and a life remembered as 85-year-old Marjorie struggles to keep hold of her memories and identity, gently assisted by an artificial version of her late husband, Walter. An exploration of aging, memory and technology, MARJORIE PRIME peers into what lies ahead and how our past is rewritten to face today.

A musical biography of Ethel Waters
By Larry Parr
Directed by Timothy Douglas

After a rough and spirit-breaking childhood, Ethel Waters became a Vaudeville success, a recording sensation and crossed racial barriers to emerge as a Broadway and Hollywood star. But a reputation for being difficult and her own distrust of those who might employ her or love her — partly a response to the horrors of Jim Crow America — caused her to lose everything and become a recluse, until she found new strength as a gospel performer. Through it all, there were the songs – the ones that gave her solace and the ones that made her a legend. This is her remarkable story, filled with the greatest hits of a lifetime, including “Stormy Weather,” "This Joint is Jumpin'" and “Am I Blue?”

Run Time: Approximately 2 hours and 10 minutes, including one intermission.

Note: Recommended for ages 14 and up. Contains some mature content and language. Children under 6 are not permitted at any production.

Interpreter: Sarah Hewlett

"Rebirthing God and our Emerging Spiritual Identity"
Guest Speaker: Richard Groves
The walls of many formal religious institutions in the West seem to be crumbling. We are too close to this event to see clearly what is emerging to take their place. However, there are clear indications that, as the American mystic Thomas Merton predicted, "Religion of the future will be mystical or won't be at all." In this talk, world religions professor Richard Groves helps us to consider three key elements that define the emerging spiritual-mystical phenomenon of our times: 1) A Return to Nature, 2) The Cry for Compassionate Justice and 3) Listening to the Wisdom of the Unconscious. The results will encourage, challenge and inspire you.

"Metaphors for Multiculturalism: Mosaics and Melting Pots"
Rev. Antonia Won, speaker
This month’s theme is ‘identity,’ a topic that can intrigue us for life, proving it’s indeed a ‘riddle and a mystery’! Today, cultural identities take center stage as we contemplate ‘the immigrant’ in religion and in politics. Who’s a stranger? Who’s native? Can we find common ground with our faith neighbors in Central Oregon?

"Saving Our Future, Sustaining Our Covenant"
Rev. Antonia and Michael Carr, Co-chair of the Stewardship Committee

A prophecy is a vision of the future. As people of faith, we hold a vision of a better world grounded in liberal values. We seek to realize it through our UUFCO covenant and mission. What does this require of us? How committed are we individuals to our collective vision? What does stewardship really mean? As we launch our annual stewardship initiative, join Rev. Antonia and Michael Carr in exploring the connections between generosity, commitment and hope.
