Associate Applicant Weekend 2008Chicago, IL –- After just one day at home in Seattle I flew out to Chicago. I've been here to visit my boy, attend the Chicago Hellfire Club's (CHC) annual Associate Applicant weekend and rehearse for an upcoming staged reading. Before I left Seattle the image (right), a rendering from an artist by the name of Nerone, was pointed out to me, so I figured I'd include it in this post. You can check out his other works on his blog.

Rehearsals for the staged reading of Doric Wilson's A Perfect Relationship presented as a part of the People's Theater of Chicago's Legacy Project are going well. The play is fast paced and quite funny. I've never performed in a gay-themed play before and the experience has been very refreshing. Although set in the 1970's, it is a timeless exploration of the relationships between gay man and a poignant reminder that they often develop in unexpected ways. I'm also a little tickled by the fact that I'm playing a disco bunny on stage at the Leather Archives and Museum (LA&M). It really should be fun.

As I mentioned, the staged reading will be presented at the LA&M, which is located at 6481 Greenview Ave in Chicago, on Sunday 16 November 2008 at 2pm. The event is open to the public (donations accepted). Please join us for this special production.

Of course the event that motivated me to return to Chicago this trip was the CHC's annual Associate Applicant weekend. The event attracts many club brothers as well as new applicants from around the world and is an excellent opportunity to strengthen the fraternal bonds that define the spirit of the club. I'm also particularly grateful for the chances these weekends provide to solicit counsel from the many experienced and respected players I now consider among my closest friends. Derek and I were both happy to hear how well our columns for Instigator Magazine have been received by these men.

Because of the heavy schedule this past weekend we only made it to a few of the CHC events but we did get several good scenes in at the clubhouse and the Hole while I was in town. It's been a good trip and I'm looking forward to getting back here next weekend.
