    Always a Boy

    Author of Never a Girl, Always a Boy and subsequent co-playwright of its stage adaptation Jo Ivester hopes the play written alongside her son Jeremy serves to “contribute to the growing awareness of what it means to be Trans.” After an industry presentation in NYC with Tony-Award winning A Strange Loop producer JJ Maley directing, this personal transition story comes home for its world premiere at Ground Floor featuring director Lisa Scheps and performers Laura Leo Kelly, Kaden Ono, Molly Fonseca, Nathan Jerkins, Max Green, Chelsea Corwin, Trace Turner, and Jeremy.– James Scott

    Nightlife & Parties

    Drag Queen Loteria

    The Red River Tex-Mex mecca – complete with full tequila bar – fuels up nine local HIV/AIDS orgs for their upcoming Hill Country Ride for AIDS ventures via donation-based loteria. Drop a suggested $5 or more on a card and play to win prizes from Austin-area vendors. Host Nadine Hughes dishes up drag, but if you’re still hungry, grab a taco and tipple from Pelon’s menu. Just shoot for the tipsy twinkle of la estrella over getting sloshed à la el borracho. – James Scott

    Nightlife & Parties

    Lavender County

    In 1926, historian Carl Sandburg described President Abraham Lincoln’s male friendships as having a “streak of lavender, and spots soft as May violets.” This phrasing, along with prompting queer inquiry into Lincoln’s legacy, stuck around as a slang term for gayness that carried into less-fun phrasing like the Lavender Scare and the Lavender Menace. Enter Lavender County, CUC’s “queer country showdeo” that celebrates all shades of purple LGBTQ passion. In addition to disco country tunes played inside and out by DJ Chorizo Funk and Vegan Leather, lavender lovers will enjoy drag by Gothess Jasmine, Bobby Pudrido, the Trans Era, Sticky Gold, Sir Beau Elliot, and Petty Cakes. Plus: Kind Clinic, on-site and ready to offer free HIV testing. – James Scott
