MONDAY NEWS & NOTES: The murder of 15-year-old gay teen Lawrence King is getting more national coverage. The New York Times ran a lengthy piece over the weekend. Here's the link. I've been talking to talk to some local activists and interested parties about having a memorial of some kind here in Atlanta. We will definitely have a moment for him on Thursday night at the Limp Wrist launch reading at Outwrite Books.
The picture at right is BFF and hand model Kathy holding the poison bottle for yesterday's photo shoot for After the Poison. Liz is working on cleaning up my author photos and doing two different mock-ups for the cover. Can't wait to see what she comes up with tomorrow.
I'm watching the new series of Skins, which is airing now in the UK. It's become one of my favorite programs. Since it's about a bunch of teens who drink, fuck and drug to excess, I'm guessing it won't ever be shown in America. It might even be too hardcore for Showtime. This season is a bit more serious, as the characters have grown up and faced suicide attempts, gay bashings and the main character being brain damaged after a terrible accident. You can see clips at the link above, but if you search that popular "tube" site all the kids are talking about these days, you might just find entire episodes.
