IN MEMORIAM: THE ORLANDO 49 Every week between now and the oneyear anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub shootings, Orlando Weekly will profile a person killed on June 12, 2016. This week: Eric Ivan Ortiz Rivera
Eric Ivan Ortiz Rivera was days away from celebrating his first wedding anniversary with his beloved husband, Ivan Domínguez. They married on June 26 – the same day the U.S. Supreme Court decided that same-sex couples across the country have a right to marry, with Justice Anthony M. Kennedy writing for the majority, “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.” Ortiz Rivera and his husband could not be together to celebrate that union last year. On June 12, the 36-year-old was one of 49 people who died in the mass shooting at the gay nightclub Pulse. Domínguez told CNN Money his husband
came to Florida in 2007 from Dorado, Puerto Rico, for a better future after studying communications at Universidad Central de Bayamón. He worked two jobs, at Party City and Sunglass Hut. Ortiz Rivera was known for helping others and being a “shy, yet cheerful” person who liked to cook traditional Puerto Rican foods and go to theme parks in his free time, according to CNN. “My heart is torn to pieces,” his husband wrote on Facebook the day of Ortiz Rivera’s death. “Today, life has changed me completely, I lost one of the most important people in my life. Eric Ortiz, you were and will always be my angel, an angel that God put on the road for me and that I will always carry inside my heart. My dear Shaky, thank you for being part of my life, thank you for the trust, the affection you always had me, it was always mutual, I know you are in a better place. Divine justice will take care of everything … I will always carry you in my heart.” Ortiz Rivera’s sister Frances Ortiz paid tribute to her brother by getting a feather tattoo similar to one he got before his death. “This was the last tattoo [he] had done,” she wrote on Facebook. “The feather is a replica of his. The Pulse symbol for the club and the birds are there because he is flying high.” – Monivette Cordeiro

The “sanctuary community” debate comes to Orlando, a judge sides with Orlando bakery owners who refused to put gay-hating message on cake, and Publix nixes the courtesy meat slice. »
Advocates ask City of Orlando, Orange County to protect immigrant communities: In response to President Donald Trump’s recent executive order that cracks down on so-called “sanctuary” communities by taking away federal funding, advocates are asking local government officials to protect Central Florida’s immigrant community. “Sanctuary” cities, counties and campuses don’t detain undocumented immigrants for federal immigration officials. After advocates asked the Orange County Commission for a dialogue to talk about adopting similar principles, Mayor Teresa Jacobs said the federal government, not the county, must address immigration issues. Similarly, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer gave us a bit of a runaround when asked about petitions to make the City Beautiful a “sanctuary” city. Dyer says the city will continue “not to focus on immigration enforcement” and find ways to overcome “hate, intolerance and injustice and embrace diversity, equality and fairness in Orlando and throughout the nation.”
Cut the Cake bakery wins against customer who wanted anti-gay slogan on cake: A Florida judge found the Orlando bakery co-owned by Sharon Haller and her daughter, Cyndol Knarr, did not discriminate against potential customer Robert Mannarino for refusing to decorate a cake with the words, “Homosexuality is an abomination unto the Lord,” according to the News Service of Florida. Knarr believed Mannarino’s call to be one of the harassing phone calls they started receiving in 2015 after Arizona evangelist Joshua Feuerstein targeted the bakery in a similar way for refusing to put the phrase “We do not support gay marriage” on a cake. Administrative Law Judge J. Bruce Culpepper rejected Mannarino’s claim that the mother-daughter duo had discriminated against him for being a Christian, noting that Mannarino does not consistently go to church and displays “questionable knowledge about the Bible,” according to NSF.
Publix deli counters will no longer offer the “courtesy slice”: To the dismay of many Floridians, the supermarket chain Publix recently nixed its tradition of automatically offering customers free slices of deli meat at the deli counter to examine the width. Customers can still get a free deli meat sample, but now they’ll have to ask for it. Publix, which says it’s trying to “naturalize” the exchange between deli clerks and customers, is now offering free “cheese of the week” samples, according to USA Today. firstname.lastname@example.org orlandoweekly.com

On Sunday morning President Trump’s from this letter last week that moved Republican senators – including Florida’s senior adviser, 31-year-old Stephen Miller, Marco Rubio, who then had the gall to the ideologue and true Trump-believer lecture us about civility, complaining that behind the Muslim ban, went on ABC’s “we are becoming a society incapable of This Week and propagated – sans evidence,

It’s not just the allegations of racism that have dogged Sessions for the better part of three decades, although they are worth discussing, and in a saner administration they alone would have been disqualifying. Take the time in the 1980s when Sessions, then the U.S. attorney in Mobile, “joked” to colleagues working a brutal hate crime that he thought the KKK was “OK until I found out they smoked pot.” An African-American assistant U.S. attorney general later testified that Sessions repeatedly called him “boy,” and another federal prosecutor testified that Sessions had called the NAACP “unAmerican” and said it and the ACLU had “forced civil rights down the throats of people.” Other attorneys with whom Sessions worked defended him, including some African-Americans, but in 1986, the Republican-led Senate Judiciary Committee declined to elevate him to the federal bench. As part of those hearings, Coretta Scott King, Martin Luther King Jr.’s widow, wrote an impassioned letter urging senators to reject Sessions. “Mr. Sessions,” she 8

because there isn’t any – the president’s absurd falsehood that he’d narrowly lost New Hampshire because Democrats had bused in thousands of fake voters from neighboring Massachusetts. Then came the tell: “But I can tell you this,” Miller said, “voter fraud is a serious problem in this country. … And now we have – our government is beginning to get [set] up. But we have a Department of Justice and we have more officials. An issue of voter fraud is something we’re going to be looking at very seriously and very hard.” A few facts – real facts, not of the alternative variety – worth mentioning: First, widespread voter fraud, the kind where droves (tens of thousands, not isolated cases here and there) of voters intentionally illegally vote so as to influence the outcome of an election, is a myth. It doesn’t happen, and there’s no evidence to suggest it does. Second, the data often thrown around to support these claims – that there are millions of registered voters who are either registered in two states or dead – is not evidence of voter fraud, but rather of outdated registration systems. But ever since he took office – actually, before that, ever since Trump lost the popular vote by 3 million – this is what the president would have you believe: that voter rolls are overrun with illegal voters, that the system is rife with corruption and needs to constrained, that it’s too easy to vote, too easy for the wrong kind of people to vote. And in Sessions, Trump has just the man to lead the crackdown he so plainly desires. email@example.com @jeffreybillman on Twitter

THE RESISTANCE WILL BE ORGANIZED Here are some tangible ways to help each other through the next four years BY MON IVETTE COR D EI R O, D EA N N A F ER R A N TE AND DAV E P LOT KI N , W I T H R EPO RTING BY RAC HEL L EBA R , N I C K W IL L S AND JESSIC A BRYC E YOU N G
ince Jan. 20, the days in our fresh new hellscape start promptly around dawn, sometimes earlier if President Donald Trump decides he wants to tweet “FAKE NEWS” at the New York Times at 3 a.m. instead of 9 a.m. Throughout lunch, the endless onslaught continues with arguments over misleading misspeaks (also known as falsehoods), attacks on basic civil rights and debates over the word “ban,” sometimes with surprise tirades from White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and a Melissa McCarthy lookalike. By nightfall, if you’re not already numb, the lump of anxiety in your throat has crawled down to your stomach as the president releases another executive order or horribly offends another world leader. Like clockwork, the next day is just like the one before, though this time Trump might attack CNN and his executive order could be aimed at undocumented immigrants instead of Muslims. Lather, rinse and repeat. Trying to resist the gaslighting is enough to shut anyone up for the next four years, though we’re hoping you won’t. (We swear: You are not crazy; this is not normal.) To help in that effort, Orlando Weekly created an action guide to keep you grounded and busy for the rest of the Trump administration, whether it ends at the polls or in an impeachment hearing. We’ve included profiles of six local organizations that are going to need your help, listings of progressive state and national organizations for you to support, a protest guide, a list of apps and websites to assist the fight, instructions for reaching out to your representatives and books – a lot of them. There’s even a preview of a dinner honoring the cuisines of the seven nations affected by the travel ban. Sometimes it’s better to mute the noise. Get out of those Facebook fights where you’ve been called a cuck too many times to count, stop hate-scrolling Twitter all night, turn off your phone and connect with others in person. Find people who share your concerns. Support vulnerable communities. And please, don’t shut up. Resist. Persist.

CAIR Florida teaches “Islam 101” courses for law enforcement officials, and “know your rights” workshops for civilians. They provide cultural competency training for doctors who see Muslim patients, and personal safety training at community centers. They help serve Muslim children through partnerships with organizations like Big Brothers/Big Sisters of South Florida. Rasha Mubarak, the Orlando regional coordinator for CAIR Florida, says these collaborations have grown and emboldened “the movement family” in Central Florida. Mubarak and a handful of local activist leaders organized a successful protest
inside Orlando International Airport on Jan. 29. The event made news and brought pro-immigrant demonstrators within earshot of the families of Syrian and Iranian travelers being questioned by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol. Many protesters heard about the action through online forums usually dedicated to UCF student progressive groups, Black Lives Matter and LGBTQ advocacy. “These relationships have been built over time, over being there together,” says Mubarak. “By joining one movement, you learn about other people doing great work without reinventing the wheel. None of us are free so long as any of us are oppressed.” CAIR and CAIR Florida need donations and volunteers, but Mubarak says there are other important ways for people to help. “We encourage people to donate but we also ask for support in the form of coming out to our events and inviting us to participate in your conversations, letting us now how can we provide our support at your organization or community center,” Mubarak says. “There are always volunteer opportunities like tabling with us, helping us set up new events, and making allies and connections with different interfaith groups and support groups.” Mubarak also recommends following CAIR Florida on social media, as well as following related groups like the Support Central Florida Muslim Community, Floridians Responding to Refugees and the Muslim Woman Organization. “Let us know how we can be there for you, too.” – DP
free to join: The League is nonpartisan. “What that means is that we don’t support particular parties or particular candidates,” Isaac says. “But we do take strong stands on issues, and we will call out politicians when they don’t take what we consider to be the right stand on issues.” One might wonder how, in this divisive time in our country, Democrats and Republicans can come together and agree on an issue. “In a country that is so increasingly divided politically, we are a third way,” Isaac says. “If you strip away the rhetoric, most people want the kind of thriving, inclusive community that we advocate for. So it’s a way of finding common ground.” That nonpartisan advocacy is what makes the League special: It’s a multi-issue organization with a set of positions that range from the local to the national level. In Orange County, the League advocates for improvements to the juvenile justice system, restoration of voting rights for felons, the use of natural resources, fair and affordable public transportation, gun safety, solutions to public education problems,
protecting women’s reproductive health and more. “We are fair, but we’re fierce,” Isaac says. “We’re going to study the issue. … When we take a position, we’re going to advocate it with all our might.” Asked if members are worried about the new administration in the White House, Isaac admits that the League has disagreed with some of the new president’s policies, like the recent executive order that temporarily banned immigration from seven predominately Muslim countries. “I think it’s reasonable to be worried, but I also think there has been a huge awakening of how important this is,” she says, referring to the recent rise of protests. The League welcomes anyone with a position they care about and is ready to give them the resources to fight for that issue. Isaac encourages anyone looking to get involved to join a committee, sign up for the newsletter, participate in a workshop or donate through the website. “It’s time for everybody to step up,” she says. “We need everyone to come out and advocate for their passions.” – DF

COUNCIL ON AMERICANISLAMIC RELATIONS
You already know the Council on American-Islamic Relations as the national Muslim civil liberties and advocacy group suing the Trump administration to stop what they call the “Muslim Exclusion Order.” You may not have known that our state’s chapter, CAIR Florida, supports these legal efforts by providing training to a wide range of people, and not just Muslims.
FLORIDA LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS, ORANGE COUNTY The League of Women Voters was founded right before women got the vote in 1920. The women’s suffrage movement had gone on for decades, and once founders of the organization suspected that the vote was on the horizon, they realized that this huge portion of the country needed to be educated about the voting process and the issues of the day. “That is the founding mission of the league and the mission we continue to fulfill today,” says Sara Isaac, the co-president of the Orange County chapter of the Florida League of Women Voters. Today, the league has grown to become one of the leading civic engagement organizations across the country. The chapter here in Orange County is the largest in the nation, with more than 700 members and still growing. Both men and women of any party are

HOPE COMMUNITY CENTER In the 40 years Sister Ann Kendrick has been working to support immigrant communities in Central Florida at the Hope CommUnity Center in Apopka, this is the worst it has ever been, she says. A sense of fear permeates the community. After the election, a group of about 100 kids who gather at the center reported racial slurs and bullying at their schools. Some people have already packed their suitcases as they anxiously wait to see what executive order President Donald Trump signs next after ordering a U.S.Mexico border wall and threatening to take away federal funds from sanctuary cities, among other actions. Kendrick says some children have come to the center crying, including an 8-year-old boy who was afraid his undocumented mom would be deported. “He was afraid his mother would be taken away because then who would take care of him,” Kendrick says. “People ask us what we’re going to do, and I tell them, ‘We’re doing what we always do, except the stakes are higher. We have to ratchet up.’” Kendrick, Sister Cathy Gorman and Sister Gail Grimes came to this area in the 1970s to help farmworkers and the working poor in the community. Decades later, they have set up two centers in Apopka where they provide a litany of services, including literacy classes, GED help, school tutoring, citizenship classes, youth groups and other resources for immigrant communities. orlandoweekly.com
Kendrick says now Hope CommUnity Center is working on two fronts to address what will possibly come down from the presidential administration. First, they’re teaching people to know their rights when stopped by the police, and also, they’re creating “safety and dignity” plans for undocumented immigrants. “Everybody, documented or not, is being caught up in this anti-immigrant attitude and scrutiny because some see immigrants as hostile and not adding to the fabric of our country,” she says. “We’re teaching them how to behave if you’re stopped by law enforcement, which is usually for driving without a license or can be racial profiling, and explaining to them what to say, what not to say, what can be incriminating.” The center is also helping undocumented immigrants put together “safety and dignity” plans consisting of medical records, school records, bank information, power of attorney letters, prescription information, letters from the community and other records that would be helpful to have readily at hand in case of detainment or deportation. Kendrick says community members who care can start assisting at the center by helping people put together their “safety and dignity” plans or by donating money to help a family in need. She adds that people can also help out by becoming tutors at the center and by letting the immigrant community know they have allies in the fight. “We can help by creating community,” Kendrick says. “We’re a safe place where people can come and be introduced to a bigger world. Now is the time to step up.” – MC FEB. 15-21, 2017
VOTE WITH YOUR FEET: TIPS FOR ATTENDING AND ORGANIZING PROTESTS 1. PREPARE TO PROTEST SAFELY
Whether organizing or attending a protest, don’t do it by yourself. If possible, bring a buddy or accompany friends. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes, and avoid bringing a bag of any kind. Keep your ID and $20 cash in your pockets, along with a handkerchief or paper towel. Bring any medicines you might need (and a photocopy of your prescription if you need one). Do not wear jewelry or bring any valuables other than your cell phone. Speaking of your phone, disable the fingerprint-scanning security feature, which police can compel you to use, and instead enter a passcode that you can “forget” if your phone is seized. Sign out of your messaging apps and social media accounts. Keep your camera app on your home screen, so you can quickly take video. If you’re outdoors in the daytime, wear sunblock but rethink bringing a big water bottle with you. There might not be restrooms and you may want to keep your hands free. If you need to bring water, bring a disposable paper or (shudder) plastic bottle, not glass or something you want to keep.
2. UNDERSTAND YOUR RIGHTS WITH POLICE
Nearly all organized protests have a police presence. Though most people don’t attend protests with the intention of getting arrested, it can still happen, even to bystanders and journalists. Assuming you are not trying to get arrested, always follow police instructions on where to walk or stand. Protesting is allowed on most public property, but remaining on private property or in a designated no-protest zone can lead to handcuffs. If a police officer asks you to identify yourself, give your full name or they can arrest you. Florida is a “stop and identify” state. If you are stopped or questioned, ask if you’re free to go. If the answer is yes, walk away calmly and without responding. Don’t lie to the police or tell them anything you don’t have to. If organizers 14

have planned for members to be arrested, encourage them to have a plan with bail money and an attorney at the ready.
3. BUILD RELATIONSHIPS TO STAY IN THE LOOP
Sign in to the protest with organizers and share contact info with other attendees. Find each other on Facebook and exchange cell numbers. Invite each other to events and organizers’ websites. Sign up to follow the organizations in this guide on social media, and accurately indicate whether you’ll be attending, in order to better help organizers prepare. Offer to volunteer and help with future actions and protests, rather than starting your own.
4. KEEP GROWING AND KEEP SHOWING UP
Learn why others are there with you. If you are not Muslim, black, transgender or otherwise a member of a vulnerable group, learn about the issues and policies affecting minorities, and how to be an effective ally. Join political campaigns, volunteering whenever possible, using the skills you are best at providing. Most candidates need a treasurer to keep track of the finances and reports. They need people who will bring them to their workplace and introduce them to the people who work there. They need sign makers and chant-starters. Seek out a campaign that is organized and able to win, but don’t expect volunteer opportunities to always be listed on their website. Offer your particular abilities, but be willing to help where needed. Avoid running for office until you have already volunteered on an organized campaign. This is the single best way to learn the basics, and it will lead you to other resources to learn about running. Learn the history of other resistance movements. Read up about non-violent direct action and civil disobedience from the ACLU and other organizations. There is comfort and clarity in recognizing cultural patterns, and it can help you find the best role for you. – DP

ZEBRA COALITION Even though the LGBT community only makes up between 10 and 12 percent of the U.S. population, LGBT youth account for 42 percent of all of the country’s homeless teenagers and young adults. In layman’s terms, LGBT youth are much more likely to end up on the street than other people in their age group. But here in Orlando, unlike in a lot of other cities, a network of organizations is working to stop this epidemic. The Zebra Coalition is made up of nearly 30 Central Florida social service providers, government agencies, schools, colleges and universities that provide resources for local LGBT youth between 13 and 24 years old. Heather Wilkie, the director of the coalition, says that the network’s main mission is working to create safe spaces for these young people. What is a safe space? “It’s an ability to connect with your peers and to have a commonality in order to connect,” Wilkie says. “Sometimes that’s a physical space … sometimes it’s having the support of a group.” Essentially, these organizations are working to create an atmosphere where young people, many of whom face discrimination and rejection on a daily basis, feel comfortable enough to be themselves. This is funded by donations, partnerships, fundraisers events and government grants. Currently, the coalition has three government grants that help support staff and services like mental health and substance abuse counseling. The coalition can house seven homeless young people in one family-style home and in one apartment at any given time. It recently unveiled a new rapid rehousing program that uses government 18
money to quickly move homeless youth from the coalition’s accommodations into their own new homes. The program helps them pay for rent and other needs until they can become self-sufficient. Last year, they housed 17 young adults, but with the addition of the rapid rehousing program, that number is sure to increase. The coalition also has a drop-in center on North Mills Avenue, another safe space where students can come to receive mental health counseling, meet with case managers and celebrate milestones with friends. The drop-in center is also home to workshops and meet-ups, and Wilkie encourages anyone with a talent or professional skill to help. Anyone can volunteer to teach a workshop. In the past, community members have taught classes on résumé writing, interview skills, smoothie making and cooking. Volunteers are always needed at fundraisers and events like Come Out With Pride. All it takes is filling out a form on the coalition’s website, although all volunteers must go through a vetting process. If you’re not into the hands-on approach, Wilkie says that donations are readily accepted. The coalition even has an Amazon wish list on its website from which one can directly send whatever is needed with a few clicks of a mouse. Every little bit, from cleaning supplies to gift cards, goes to enriching the lives of these young people, a group rocked by devastating hate last year – the Pulse massacre where 49 people, many in this age group, were killed. “It’s very important for our community to have youth-supportive programs where we provide safe spaces for LGBT youth,” Wilkie says. “It’s never been more important, considering what happened on June 12, that we send these youth a message that they are supported.” – DF

HOW TO CONTACT YOUR REPRESENTATIVES
Don’t despair about not having any influence over national political decisions. The truth is, you often do.
1. CONTACT THEM ALL, ESPECIALLY YOUR LOCAL LEADERS. The U.S. Constitution gives ultimate authority to federal laws, but the federal government relies heavily on local policies and law enforcement officials to get things done. While huge portions of the federal government may seem out of reach to most voters, your elected officials and local leaders can be surprisingly accessible. The offices of your U.S. Congress members and Senators are often the first point of contact. But do not limit yourself to the highest offices, especially if you feel lost in the crowd. State governments handle the majority of issues most relevant to you, within each jurisdiction. Even your county and city leaders can take a stand on national issues, especially civil rights and immigration protections.
2. INTERACT WITH YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS AND THEIR STAFF AS YOU WOULD WITH YOUR OWN BANK . A great rule of thumb for contacting your legislator is to treat your elected officials and their staff as you would with the staff of your own local bank. They are going to remember you, and staying positive works to your advantage. This makes more sense the more you think about it. First and foremost, get to know their names and treat them with politeness and respect, especially if you reach an intern. Introduce yourself when you call or visit and ask how they are. It is easy to establish a relationship, even if you only call their office a few times a year. Planned Parenthood’s senior director of public affairs, Anna Eskamani, says the most effective way of reaching out to elected officials is through in-person contact. “If available, personal meetings are always the best, and that includes their staff. Don’t wait until there’s an issue you are reacting to. Try to get to know them while they’re in the district to start to 20
ORLANDO WEEKLY ● FEB. 15-21, 2017
build the relationship. Then, when you make that call they will know you,” says Eskamani. “This moves it away from transactionalism and into a meaningful relationship.” As with your bank account, watch the activity coming from that official’s office, and call if you spot something you don’t like or understand. Call every time you spot an error, and let them know how you feel about it. Just as you can switch banks if they won’t reverse an error or they enforce a policy you don’t like, if a politician won’t change their decision, you can work to replace them. Be sure to call and thank officials when they do something you support, especially if they take a brave stand on politically contentious issues.
3. CONTACT THEM IN WAYS THAT COUNT. Phone calls are a great method of contact because you can program officials’ numbers into your phone and call about different issues. Staffers note the numbers of calls for and against policy, and offices feel the heat when an issue gets the phones ringing. Be brief on the phone and only request a response if you really need one. Reference the specific nominee or bill number you are calling about. Remember that your comments become public record as soon as you say or send them. Comport yourself as if everyone will be able to read or hear your words. Your voting history and campaign-donation history are also public record, and some elected officials will check to see if you are a constituent and a “super-voter.” Emails are usually read at the local level, but not reliably by federal representatives. If you email rather than calling, use your own words and do not use an automated message or form letter. Staff members virtually disregard these, unless they are part of a massive coordinated effort. Whenever possible, send a personal letter. “People are surprised to get a mailed, written letter, and the odds of them opening and reading it are pretty high,” says Eskamani. – DP
METHODS OF CONTACT Quick actions 1. Call their office 2. Mail a letter to their office 3. Email an original note 4. Tweet or tag them in a post 5. Sign up for legislative alerts from the Florida House and Senate, and like and follow the Facebook pages of activist organizations you care about. Legislative alerts: • Florida Senate Tracker: flsenate. gov/tracker • Florida House Tracker: myfloridahouse.gov/sections/ myhouse/login.aspx Facebook pages: • American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) • Floridians Responding to Refugees • Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) Florida • Muslim Women’s Organization Orlando • Black Lives Matter • Central Florida Jobs With Justice • Equality Florida • Organize Florida Long-term actions 1. Schedule an appointment with the official or their staff, and invite local officials to community gatherings. Begin by inviting a Soil and Water District Supervisor to coffee. 2. Form relationships with that official and their staff through regular, courteous contact. Introduce yourself at public gatherings and follow up with an email. 3. Attend public meetings and speak about issues that move you. Be brief, bring business cards, and prepare to answer questions from officials or audience members. 4. Apply to join a county or city public advisory board, and contact your representative there to discuss your application. 5. Support candidates for office by volunteering, donating to them early, and introducing them to everyone you know. 6. After researching your local issues and districts, run for office yourself.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD OF SOUTHWEST AND CENTRAL FLORIDA Most American women have grievances about the new president, but few issues are as personal as Trump’s and Vice President Pence’s stated intentions to obstruct women’s access to basic healthcare and safe, legal abortions. On Jan. 23, Trump signed an executive action reinstating the so-called “Mexico City Policy,” which cuts U.S. government funding to international non-governmental organizations that perform or discuss abortions. The American Civil Liberties Union reports 238 abortion restrictions have been imposed at the state level since 2010, with 50 happening last year alone. Our own local Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida refuses to cede any ground in this latest national battle, steadfastly providing women and men with reproductive health services, education, and screenings. “Planned Parenthood is working in health centers, in state capitols, and out on the streets on behalf of reproductive health and rights,” says Anna Eskamani, senior director of public affairs and communications for Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida. PP-SWCF began operations in 1966, an affiliate of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc., which now has 22 health centers in Florida. Eskamani began in April 2012, and has become a local icon of reproductive rights advocacy, an increasingly significant part of their mission. She says there are many different ways to volunteer for Planned Parenthood, including event volunteering on April 29, when the group’s Generations Gala: Orlando fundraiser will feature speakers Dahlia Lithwick of Newsweek and Slate, and Sonya Renee Taylor, founder of The Body Is Not an Apology movement. Besides helping at events, volunteers may escort patients at health centers, perform community outreach like tabling or writing letters to legislators, or help at the office. College students can get involved through Vox, Voices for Planned Parenthood, on campus. Faith leaders and congregants who support choice can join the Interfaith Coalition for Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is also looking for some lobbying help in the form of “a new generation of leaders in the civic and legislative process.” The vast majority of Americans side with personal privacy and choice, but they aren’t always the voters calling legislators. “When the legislative session is unfolding, pay attention and write and call them. That is something that almost everyone can do,” says Eskamani. “You don’t have to leave the house. Know your legislators and know who your state reps and senators are, not just in Congress. Sign up for a Google alert for their names, so you’re the first to see it. Remember, this is a relationship.” – DP 22

CENTRAL FLORIDA JOBS WITH JUSTICE The labor movement has always been a key part of the resistance in America, says Denise Díaz, and right now, organizers are preparing for a full-on attack if a fast-food chain executive takes over the federal Department of Labor. Díaz is the executive director of Central Florida Jobs With Justice, a coalition of labor unions, community organizations, students, faith-based groups and workers that strives to build power for working people through several campaigns, such as raising wages or protecting collective bargaining. Díaz says sometimes it involves supporting farmworkers and organizing airport baggage handlers to vote on a union, while other times it’s sending delegations to a work site. Right now, though, organizers are preparing their response to Trump’s nominee for labor secretary: Andrew Puzder, the CEO of CKE Restaurants, which runs the Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s chains. The millionaire opposes several worker protections, such as expanding overtime pay, and has complained about raising the minimum wage. “Florida is already a right-to-work state, so the little protections workers have on the federal level, like discrimi-
nation protections, we’re afraid will go away,” she says. “People are not really sounding alarms for worker’s rights, I think because people live it every day. But I think we’re going to start seeing a lot of workers organizing and learning their rights.” Central Florida Jobs with Justice is just the place to do that, Díaz says. With a team of two other people, Díaz is trying to make sure workers know their rights and teaching activists to become organizers. “Right now we’re in crisis mode,” she says. “We see emerging activists at protests, and I think we need to turn those people into organizers who can build power. You went to a protest; now how do you become someone who can lead a meeting and lead others in a protest?” Currently, the organization is looking for volunteers to participate in actions, phone banks and protests. Central Florida Jobs With Justice also provides organizer trainings to its members, Díaz says. “The labor movement is the resistance that keeps capital and corporations in check,” she says. “Now we’re seeing corporations in a place where profit comes before people. I think everyone has a stake in the labor movement being stronger, and it’s been rolled back so much that we really have to do what we can to keep it intact.” – MC orlandoweekly.com

READING IS FUNDAMENTAL Books to inspire you during these hard times BY LO R R A I N E B E R RY
ike a lot of writers I know, the first month after the election of Donald Trump was spent trying to dig myself out of the abyss into which I had fallen. For me, one of the ways to get inspired to resist an administration that wants to set back the progress of several decades, and which threatens our constitutional rights, is to do something that the President has told us several times he doesn’t do: read books. I’ve put together a list of books that gave me, both at the original time I read them and in these uncertain times, a boost to my sense that all is not hopeless. Reading is not direct action, but reading is inspiration, and inspiration gets me up out of my chair. Obviously, none of these books were written as a direct result of the Trump election, but the stories they tell reveal the various ways in which human beings resist oppression. May they provide you with pathways out of the depressive funk in which the current regime would prefer we remain for the next four years.
NOVELS Daughters of the North by Sarah Hall
An army of women hides in the north of England. Its members are all escapees from “urban centers” where women have been forced to go. All women have been fitted with devices that prevent them from conceiving; only those lucky enough to win a lottery are allowed to have children, the government’s reaction to an environmental crisis that has made life on the island difficult. The sanctuary provides women with reproductive freedom, but as the government launches a campaign to round up the sanctuary members, each member must decide whether she is willing to fight in order to hold onto her freedom.
The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver
Kingsolver has written a number of books that fit this category, but in The Lacuna, she places her character, Harrison Shepherd, in the household of Mexican artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. The two radical artists had a friendship with exile Leon Trotsky, who had split with Stalin over the direction of the Russian Revolution. The book’s action moves to America, where Shepherd witnesses the unions’ struggle for power in the 1930s.
Bartleby the Scrivener by Herman Melville Yes. That book you vaguely remember having read in high school actually has a message of resistance. Bartleby works as a scrivener, or copyist, for a New York attorney. His one act of resistance – “I prefer not to” – leads to a series of events that results in Bartleby’s imprisonment. One of the ultimate stories of the individual’s right to determine their own fate. 24

My Year of Meats by Ruth Ozeki
A funny, sexy story that takes place in both the United States and Japan. A housewife is ordered to prepare meat dishes each night for dinner by her husband. He works for an American company that imports beef into Japan. At the same time, Jane works as a producer for a Japanese television show that is sponsored by the same meat-exporting business. Both women stage protests that cause international ramifications.
Half a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
The Biafran Civil War in Nigeria claimed a million lives between 1967-1970. This book, which was awarded the “Best of the Best” by the Women’s Prize for Fiction (formerly known as the Bailey’s Prize) follows the stories of five characters as it explores the themes of identity and women’s agency during times of crisis. One of the best novels that I’ve ever read.
Hope in the Dark and Mother of All Questions by Rebecca Solnit
Rebecca Solnit has been speaking truth to power for decades, but it was Hope in the Dark that sold out in the days following Trump’s election. Rather than allowing anyone to wallow in sadness, Solnit insists that hope is not naive optimism. Hope is “not a substitute for action, only a basis for it.” Out in March, her newest book, Mother of All Questions, further challenges those who want to use defeat as an opportunity to lapse into silence. She is especially critical of male silence, which she argues is the price exacted from them for their participation in patriarchy and rape culture.
The John Carlos Story as told to Dave Zirin
The photo of John Carlos on the Olympic Medal stand is one of the most iconic images of the ’60s. In 1968, he and Tommie Smith stood with their arms raised in a Black Power salute during the playing of the American anthem. Before Colin Kaepernick’s protests, there was John Carlos (Carlos and Kaepernick are great admirers of each other). The action had lifelong repercussions for Carlos, but he has spent his life dedicated to helping children reach their potential. It’s something to read if you’re still bummed about Trump supporters Tom Brady and Bill Belichick’s surprise victory on Super Bowl Sunday.

COLORING BOOKS Girls Are Not Chicks Coloring Book by Jacinta Bunnell and Julie Novak
The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
Whitehead won the 2016 National Book Award for this novel, which plays with the history of slavery in the United States. In addition to making the underground railroad into a literal series of train stations, Whitehead imagines an America where “states’ rights” has prevailed and each state has determined whether to hold onto slavery. The book is a subversive response to states’ rights activists who argue that state governments are superior to federal governance.
Sometimes the Spoon Runs Away With Another Spoon Coloring Book by Jacinta Bunnell and Nathaniel Kusinitz
Living My Life by Emma Goldman
Prior to the Iranian Revolution of 1979, Satrapi and her family lived a middle-class existence in a modern Iran. After the revolution, Marjane found ways to resist being told what music she could listen to or which books she could read. In this graphic novel, adolescent rebellion combines with nascent political awareness to create a new feminist heroine.
The most dangerous woman in America was stripped of her American citizenship and deported from this country in 1919. Her crime? Speaking out against the draft during World War I. Goldman served two years, from 1917 to 1919, and was then sent to Russia, where she discovered that the Bolshevik Revolution was a betrayal of the workers it claimed to represent. Goldman was a proponent of family planning, an opponent of marriage and a prolific writer. Living My Life is her fascinating autobiography.
Refuge by Terry Tempest Williams
We Gon’ Be Alright by Jeff Chang
NONFICTION Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
During one year, Williams, a naturalist, watched the Great Salt Lake flood and threaten to destroy the delicate plant life and birds that nest on its shore. At the same time, both her mother and grandmother were diagnosed with reproductive cancers. The events appear disconnected; by the end of the book, Williams has shown how we’re all tied to one another in the web of life.
Chang looks at the self-inflicted problems of this century – re-segregation and gentrification – and provides a primer on how these changes occurred, along with creative solutions to the problems he sees. He also looks at Ferguson and Black Lives Matter, and at his own life as an Asian-American man, an “in-between” minority.
The Fire This Time edited by Jesmyn Ward
In 1963, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his nephew that he titled The Fire Next Time. After the murder of Trayvon Martin, black writers contributed essays to this collection, talking about what has and hasn’t changed in the 50-plus years since Baldwin’s letter. Ward, whose own work as both a memoirist and a novelist is devastating, edited the collection, which includes work by some of the greatest writers working in America today.
If all this rebellious reading has got you stressed out at the end of the day, don’t worry: You can participate in a nice, stressrelieving activity like coloring and still find inspiration to fight the power. Wind down at the end of the day by coloring in images of subversive figures who don’t conform to the dominant gender narrative!

BY SETH KUBERSKY MICHAEL WINSLOW | PHOTO BY C.A. BRIDGES
Over the past few years, the
performing arts center at Valencia College’s east campus has served as a Chicago nightclub, a Times Square dance hall and a 19th-century German school; this weekend it becomes a Gramercy Park apartment for the stage version of The Seven Year Itch. But last week, for one night only, the venue was repurposed as a comedy club, allowing students and the public a rare opportunity to see a comedy icon test out brand-new material. Michael Winslow, the sound effectspewing star of 1980s classics like Police Academy, Gremlins and Spaceballs, was a staple of my childhood VCR. And as his recent free performance at Valencia demonstrated, there’s much more to this Central Florida resident than just a repertoire of wacky noises.
As befits every big-name star, Winslow shared the stage with a pair of opening acts recruited from the ranks of local colleges, who warmed up the crowd with evidence that the art of stand-up is still alive and well among the up-and-coming generation. First, UCF “super-senior” Sean Philippe spun salacious yarns about ’shroom-addled dogs and armed infants with the cocky attitude of a young Chris Rock; he was followed by Valencia student Hannibal Callens, who harnessed his wildly theatrical physicality and command of dialects to deliver beat poetry one-liners with a political punch. The evening’s headliner was welcomed with a cleverly edited video montage that turned four decades of Winslow’s most recognizable appearances into a rap song. That soon segued into a steampunkstyle title sequence declaring the start of “Michael Winslow’s Sound Adventures.”
There’s much more to sound effect-spewing star Michael Winslow than just a repertoire of wacky noises The next 40 minutes were a fusion of gentle observational comedy, eerily accurate musical mimicry and adolescent auditory absurdities, all tailored to showcase Michael’s famously talented mouth. While best known for vocal imitations of inorganic objects – whether the beep of a grocery scanner, the flap of a toilet paper roll or the pop of bubble wrap, all instantly recognizable – Winslow is also like the black Rich Little, able to impersonate everyone from Chris Tucker and Eddie Murphy to Christopher Lloyd and Arnold Schwarzenegger. While I’d wondered if his 20th-century pop culture references would connect with a college-age audience, it seems the current obsession with the retro ’80s and ’90s serves Winslow well, because his humor drew hearty laughs from the Valencia crowd.
Though primarily a comedian, Winslow’s equally impressive musical talents took center stage in tributes to Led Zeppelin, Prince and Jimi Hendrix. Not only is Winslow able to capture the original artists’ vocal stylings, but he also mimics every instrument in the band, from bass and drums to electric guitar. Thanks to a cutting-edge digital looping device provided by Roland, he can now play all the parts simultaneously, allowing him to build layers of his voice into a complex composition in front of a live
audience. A longtime audiophile, Winslow “was using Roland equipment in the ’70s,” he told me after the show, saying that the technology has “finally caught up to me.”
“I DARE YOU TO TRY”
Following his set, Winslow graciously stuck around for an audience question-andanswer session that was both intimate and inspirational. When asked if his unique performance style causes him physical problems, Winslow was painfully honest, saying “your throat can catch on fire. … It is a singular life, and I wouldn’t recommend it to everybody.” (Of course, that didn’t stop him from following up with a sample of Mongolian throat-singing and an ear-piercing bagpipe simulation.) The hurt he’s overcome hasn’t only been physical, either; as a military brat moving to a different country every two years, young Winslow “didn’t have a lot of friends, so [he] would end up making up [his] own soundtracks to movies.” Even as his career was getting started in the ’80s, Winslow struggled, he says. “I was living in my car at the time, and I just wanted to get a job” when he auditioned for the voice of Stripe in Gremlins, he admits. Despite the challenges he’s faced over the years, Winslow keeps looking forward; his Valencia performance was filmed as potential audition footage for the Bonnaroo Festival, Adult Swim or Disney. He also keeps encouraging young performers to pursue their ambitions, even if it isn’t always easy. “Just bear in mind, for all the folks who think, ‘I don’t think I can do this,’ remember I’m thinking about you. There are other performers out there more scared than you are, trust me,” Winslow told the students in conclusion. “You learn by doing, and you can do this. I dare you to try it!” firstname.lastname@example.org orlandoweekly.com

Patronizing a restaurant like Cress that champions ethical and sustainable approaches to agriculture, and is a vocal supporter of local farmers, is a political act in and of itself. “The decisions we make as consumers make their way into the marketplace as a sign of the overall demand,” says Pulapaka. “Producers, on the other hand, react to the demand and, in many cases, lead consumers with creative marketing.

It’s 6 o’clock in the evening, you’ve just gotten off work and that creeping 21stcentury malaise is setting in. Instead of grabbing a burger from the drive-thru, like you would have done last year, might we recommend swinging by the supermarket produce section instead?

If it’s all Greek to you, you’re on the right track. Nutritionists and holistic medicine professionals have lauded the Mediterranean Diet for its health benefits for decades. A reliance on olive oils, fruits and vegetables, unrefined cereals, and fish can reduce the risk of a plethora of ailments like cancer, neurodegeneration, cardiovascular diseases, and other long-term disorders.

The FSHL even conducts workshops in their classrooms before going into the garden to sift through all that green, growing goodness. “We just want people to know there’s something like that here in Orlando that people can come to,” Russ says. “We’re here for them.” ●
Take a Plant Walk
If you don’t have the space to plant and tend a garden of your own, maybe consider taking a leisurely plant walk? The Florida School of Holistic Living takes their students on strolls through Mead Garden to identify all sorts of flowers and greenery. Being out in nature can help remove the unconscious distractions and clutter that years of modern life burdens you with. “There’s a lot of noise pollution here [in Orlando], and you don’t realize that’s all going on until you step back and go into nature,” Russ says.

It’s crucial to have a safe, healthy outlet for those feelings and expressions—learning to play a musical instrument, or taking up another creative pursuit like painting, can do wonders for your mental health. “As humans, we have energies inside us, and we’re using energy all the time,” Russ says. “You don’t have to be an amazing painter or an amazing drummer. As long as you’re feeling that movement and being a part of that movement, you’re moving energy in and out, toward your physical body and then outside of yourself.” The Florida School of Holistic Living hosts numerous creative classes where students can pick up a new hobby and make new friends in the process.

ON SCREENS IN ORLANDO
BY STE V E S C H N E I D E R OPENING THIS WEEK: Fist Fight It isn’t easy being a teacher in the Betsy DeVos era. You get a good but expensive degree from an education college to prepare you for doing important work you love. You land a gig at an institution that’s woefully underfunded, unsafe and at risk. The students don’t respect you, the parents are unengaged in their kids’ education, and you have to pay for every goddamn protractor yourself. And then one day, you run afoul of one of your colleagues, who threatens to beat your ass after the work day is done. Oh, and that guy is Ice Cube. Yes, we have entered the era in which the fabulous O’Shea Jackson is now believable as a public-school teacher. Hey, it worked for Fonzie and Mark Harmon. And really, playing The Teacha Ya Love ta Hate is a bit closer to Cube’s N.W.A wheelhouse than was his protracted stint as cinema’s favorite befuddled dad. Now we just have to figure out if Fist Fight is a loose adaptation of 1987’s Three O’Clock High – which is the official story being advanced in some quarters – or if it was instead based on an original idea devised by producer Max Greenfield, as has been claimed elsewhere. Since Greenfield is best known as a cast member on New Girl, I’m going to go with the latter explanation. Just because it means I can hold out hope for a sequel, I’m-a Beat the Schmidt Out of You. (R) The Great Wall Here’s a product that could
keep our new President up at night, if he ever slept in the first place. It’s about a big wall, which is good. But it’s the most expensive co-production ever between our country and the dreaded Jina, which is bad. Or is it? Does a collaboration between a Western nation and an Asian one benefit the country that’s artificially devaluing its currency? Do we want a strong dollar or a weak one? Better call the Secretary of the Interior and find out. Whatever the intention, The Great Wall is turning out to be the Bill the Cat of major international releases, finding bad luck in just about every move it makes. First, director Zhang Yimou (Hero, House of Flying Daggers) took heat for casting Caucasian actor Matt 42

Damon in a story that’s ostensibly set in ancient China. Then, reviewers back home were less than kind to the final result, which depicts a bunch of mercenaries of the Song Dynasty protecting the Great Wall from monsters from beyond the stars: Reactions to this shall-wesay-unconventional story were so tepid that the communist People’s Daily castigated the critics for having harmed their own country’s movie industry. Then, just one week before the picture’s American debut, a teaser trailer had to be removed after viewers spewed mass derision all over the CGI monsters in question, saying they couldn’t possibly represent completed work. Since the movie has been out in China since December, I’m guessing they really kinda do. Which has to be a huge humiliation for Zhang, whose Hero was just about the loveliest visual advertisement I’ve ever seen for a brutally repressive regime. Meanwhile, the ho-hum performance of his new film at Asian box offices is being taken as just one sign that the commingling of their movie market and ours might not be the economic slam dunk industry-watchers had foreseen. Such confusion. I hope the Secretary of Agriculture can straighten it all out. (PG-13) ALSO PLAYING: Julieta In Pedro Almodovar’s latest, two dif-
ferent actresses play the same woman at different stages of her life. (As opposed to Catherine Zeta-Jones movies, in which one actress plays two different women at the same stage of her life. But I kid the mentally ill!) Julieta was Spain’s official entry for this year’s foreign film Oscar, but failed to make the cut. Instead, one of those coveted slots went to ... (R) The Salesman ... a French-Iranian drama about a married couple who are playing the leads in a stage production of Death of a Salesman. Things get really heavy for them after they move into an apartment that had been previously occupied by a woman who was working as a prostitute. If you ask me, somebody passed up a big opportunity by not titling this thing Attention Must Be Laid. (PG-13)

If that photo above doesn’t
impel you to read on, nothing will. So let’s.
Like an encyclopedia of heavy metal, probably no other promoter in the Orlando area covers the spectrum as well as Endoxa Booking. But when it reaches out to the genre’s furthest extremities, like 2015’s amazing Author and Punisher show, Endoxa makes some of its best, deepest and most interesting marks on the scene. Count the latest synth-thick production featuring Gost, Autarx and Moondragon (Feb. 5, Will’s Pub) as one of its most memorably bold. Headliner Gost is, by careful design, an interesting figure. Musically, his hammering dark-synth sound borrows from ’80s horror soundtracks, takes aesthetic cues from black metal and drops the crunching thunder like Justice. In presence, the mysterious American producer executes with dramatic flair, athletic performance and a fantastic skull mask. The performance was so physical at one point that he overturned his whole rig in the heat of the moment, stopping the show, only to recover with maybe his most pulverizing song of the night. It’s a winning formula filled with hooks that in some ways makes perfect sense and in other ways is total alchemy. Had Gost come along during the golden age of the industrial scene, he would’ve been not only a sensation but possibly a salvation. He packs way more modern aggression and relevance than the terrible gothic techno that industrial dance music has become. The damned now have their Deadmau5.
Had Gost come along during the golden age of the industrial scene, he would’ve been not only a sensation but possibly a salvation. The damned now have their Deadmau5. Synth music is getting an increasingly fairer shake right now, but the live bar for such acts is almost institutionally low. Gost, however, brings the excitement on stage even without a fancy setup. This could easily get big. Not that there’s necessarily much demographic overlap, but he packed out Will’s Pub despite it being Super Bowl Sunday. If Gost takes inspiration from ’80s sounds, local one-man act Moondragon is straight worship. Armed with a video screen and a whole lotta synth, he’s a direct warp back to the sleek electro drama of what was perhaps, sonically, the last true brave new world. His retrofuturism is all in on the digital dream and excess of the ’80s – no arty abstraction, just pure fidelity and revivalist immersion. The thing is, though, it’s also very well done. His set was essentially a half-hour Knight Rider soundtrack, which middle school me will simply not permit adult me to reproach. When experienced in concert with vintage video loaded with action and speed from jets, racecars and movies like The Last Starfighter, The Wraith and
The Terminator, it’s sweet neon nostalgia. With a sound that’s a coil of nerve, sinew and weirdness, NYC indie darlings Parquet Courts rocketed to almost immediate “it” status upon their debut album’s national release and have gone on to cement their stake in a pretty short span of time. On those wings, they made their Orlando debut (Feb. 6, the Social) to a crammed and enthused crowd. You know how hype can be. But in their case, it’s anything but hollow. One of the more original bands in indie rock right now, Parquet Courts’ wiry whim melds the energy and spark of punk with the unpredictable id of art rock. That said, their flights of fancy aren’t exactly the easiest ride around. That’s why the more dialed-in and streamlined approach they’ve been taking since 2016’s Human Performance has been manna. Instead of dulling their individuality, it’s only distilled it, yielding an exponential result. Moreover, the added muscle of the live stage was yet another welcome anchor for their music, lending its obliqueness some great heft and giving full kick to their punk tendencies. It’s always nice to see an interesting band like Parquet Courts hit it big, and even nicer to see that their dizzying evolution is showing such effective refinement. Opening was the very well-connected Mary Lattimore, the Philadelphia artist who just played Will’s Pub last November with True Widow. A gossamer latticework that occasionally melts at the edges, her experimental harp playing is classically beautiful but also capable of real strangeness. And it bewitched a full house. firstname.lastname@example.org orlandoweekly.com

Say you forgot about Valentine’s Day, or maybe you and your sweetie’s schedules just didn’t allow for a romantic night out. You could do worse than catching Loudar to make up for it. A project that tends to only happen whenever French poet Patrick Sacleux is in town, Loudar started out as just readings of poetry from Sacleux, accompanied by his son, Pascal, on guitar. The musical portion has grown with repeat performances and now incorporates Sacleux fils on guitar, Phil Longo on bass, Shae Charles MacPherson on drums and Joseph Davoli on trumpet. The atmospheric backgrounds produced are largely improvised, providing a stirring soundtrack to Sacleux père’s bilingual (French and English) wordplay. – Thaddeus McCollum 8 p.m. | Blue Bamboo Center for the Arts, 1905 Kentucky Ave., Winter Park | 407-636-9951 | bluebambooartcenter.com | $10

OUR PICKS FOR THE BEST EVENTS THIS WEEK
Whereas the words “solo acoustic show” and “Rolling Stone’s Top 20 Guitarists of All Time” would normally fill us with varying degrees of cold dread, Richard Thompson is one of the few so-called “guitar heroes” you can actually enjoy. Despite the heavy baggage of pyrotechnics and puffy shirts that immediately spring to mind, Thompson is more in the school of Neil Young, Bert Jansch and John Fahey, where the song is favored over the technique. It’s a through-line that applies to all of Thompson’s work, from his beginnings in English psych-folk legend Fairport Convention, through his duo work with then-wife Linda Thompson, and all of his hefty solo discography. And if you’re still on the fence, Richard Thompson gifted us with one of the single greatest self-loathing breakup albums of all time, the monolithically bleak Shoot Out the Lights (1982), wherein he and Linda held up the tatters of their marriage to the cold, unforgiving light of day. Expect a career-spanning survey of solo work and perhaps even some Fairport Convention nuggets. – Matthew Moyer 7 p.m. | The Plaza Live, 425 N.

Nobody doesn’t love a good art party, and F.L.A.M.E. promises to fit into the mold Orlando has come to enjoy: cool space, cool artists, free entry but plenty of cool stuff to buy, plus the satisfaction of ephemerality – if you miss it, you missed out. F.L.A.M.E. also promises to break out of that mold a bit, though, in a fittingly one-off manner: not only will there be local goods for sale, an exhibition by a respected local artist (Lesley Silvia) and an artist creating work on the spot (19-year-old New Yorker Goyart, who’s as influenced by Walt Disney "THE THREE GRACES" BY LESLEY SILVIA as he is by Basquiat), there’ll also be one-off fashion created on the spot by Fire the Help. Organizer Winston Taitt says, “It’s so cool to me that kids want to be creative, instead of being herded by commercialism. Instead of the latest Gucci/Prada/Hermes, they want these one-of-ones.” Get fired up and satisfy your desire for distinction with a jacket or shirt from Fire the Help, minis from Political Sculptor, pins and patches from Secret Society, and a plethora of beverage choices: cocktails by Will’s Pub, fizzy probiotics from Orlando City Kombucha, caffeine by Vita Luna, and beer from Ten10 and MIA Brewing. – Jessica Bryce Young 6-9 p.m. | Orange Studio, 1121 N.

We don’t need to rehash how bad 2016 was for musician deaths, but it’s important to recognize that the bizarre wave of death that swept the globe touched down locally too. Big Makk (neé Samisoni Koroitamudu), known for curating the tropical bootythumping Shake N Bass night at Backbooth, died in a car crash in August. He was only 22 years old, but had released tracks on respected labels like Dim Mak and Mad Decent. Tonight, Backbooth pays tribute to the beloved DJ with a party in his honor. DJ Craze, a three-time DMC world champion with major old-school turntablism skills, headlines. But the night is all about Makk, with all proceeds going to the Big Makk Foundation, which provides scholarships for young adults who want to pursue careers in the music industry, ensuring that Big Makk’s name lives on. – TM with DJ Craze, K1K0, Ivarr, Ma-Less, Mezmriz, OG Nacho | 11:30 p.m. | Backbooth, 37 W.

Janine Klein: The Diva’s Diva THEATER
Assisting a drag queen: It isn’t all bonbons and marabou mules, brushing out wigs and playing rounds of Name That Barbara Stanwyck Quote. In fact, if you work for Ginger Minj (who said, “I like to describe myself as a glamour-toad” in her premiere episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race) as Janine Klein did, it sounds more like a cross between It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World and The Poseidon Adventure. This show, subtitled “Tales of a Drag Queen’s Assistant,” follows Klein as she fills in as factotum to her BFF, a selfdescribed “overweight, asthmatic, chain-smoking crossdresser from Orlando, Florida” on a tour from Dublin to … Peoria. Sounds scintillating, no? Well, no – except when Klein, who’s got more than a dash of diva herself, tells it. Grab three cocktails and fasten your seatbelts for this one, it’s going to be a lumpy night. – JBY 8 p.m. | also Feb. 25 | Parliament House, 410 N.

Sometimes we grow weary of our own surroundings and long for something greater – namely, other people’s much nicer homes. Audubon Park Garden District’s Retro Modern Homes Tour is the perfect excuse to explore interior design ranging from vaguely unaffordable to Zooey Deschanel-level quirky while staring longingly at top-shelf liquor collections resting atop a Mad Men-era bookshelf. But what is a retro modern home? How do you know if you’re in one right now? Mid-century modern architecture is noteworthy for its post-and-beam construction, which replaced the controversial blanket fort construction that Americans relied on to keep monsters out for decades prior. The style takes cues from Scandinavian design (aka furniture that looks really uncomfortable but is completely fine if you’re a thin blonde woman who doesn’t need much back support anyway), wide-open interiors to physically manifest the emotional distance you’ve achieved with your spouse, and lines so simple even an alternative-facts guru could follow them straight out the door and into our terrifying hellscape of a country. But while we’re inside the homes, we’re back in the middle of the 20th century, enjoying a welcome respite from the bizarre plot twists of our current century. – Abby Stassen 1-7:30 p.m. | Audubon Park Garden District, East Winter Park Road and Corrine Drive | audubonparkgardens.com | $35

Chances are you’ll have a good time and learn a little more about the inner lives of our Iranian, Iraqi, Syrian, Sudanese, Somalian, Libyan and Yemeni neighbors. – Monivette Cordeiro 11 a.m.-7 p.m. | Lake Eola Park, 195 N.

Hair of the Dog Day The Bakery Bar Grand Opening The upstairs space in the alley between Church and Pine streets has struggled in recent years, with Rok Room going through two incarnations separated by a long period of inactivity. But the Bakery Bar, already in soft opening, looks to reverse that trend with craft cocktails sculpted around the flavors of classic desserts. If sweet’s your thing, you may want to check out the menu at a discounted price on their grand opening night. 7 p.m. Thursday; The Bakery Bar, 41 W. Church St.; various menu prices; facebook.com/thebakerybarorlando Bach and Beer This annual collaboration between the Bach Festival Society and Cask & Larder Brewing is probably our favorite local Baroque/craft beer crossover. While C&L launches this year’s batch of Brandenburger Bock (get it?), the Bach Festival Society Choir takes the stage to provide guests with heavenly musical accompaniment straight out of the 18th century. And now that the Ravenous Pig has taken over the kitchen at the former Cask & Larder space, expect the special German menu for the evening to be unglaublich. Noon-3 p.m. Saturday; The Ravenous Pig, 565 W. Fairbanks Ave., Winter Park; various menu prices; bachfestivalflorida.org
Bowmore Oyster Luge Kickoff and Tasting If you got excited hearing the words “oyster luge” and pictured yourself puckering up to a chute carved out of ice to knock back a steady stream of raw, briny bivalves, we have bad news. It turns out that an oyster luge has little to do with the Jägermeister luge you swore you’d never try but did anyway (and loved!). Bowmore’s luge is more like those lime-salt-tequila shots that approximate a margarita. Only this shot is out of an oyster shell and involves single malt scotch. Now we’re talking. The price includes samples of five different scotches from Bowmore – including an out-of-your-price-range 25-year – oysters, charcuterie and cheese. Reservations required. 5-7 p.m. Saturday; The Osprey Tavern, 4899 New Broad St.; $42; 407-960-7700; ospreytavern.com
Hair of the Dog Day Bring your pooch over to the Topher for this puppy party. Sponsored by Lagunitas (because of the dog in their logo, we assume), Hair of the Dog Day features free dog treats made from spent brewer’s grain, raffles and giveaways, and even a caricature artist on site to sketch silly portraits of your main mutt. Plus, comedian Big Tim Murphy will be on site in a culinary capacity, slinging (you guessed it) hot dogs. 2-7 p.m. Sunday; The Thirsty Topher, 601 Virginia Drive; various menu prices; facebook.com/thethirstytopher PHOTO BY ANITA PEEPLES

Northwestern Mutual Orlando Chili Cook-Off E V E N TS
Orlando is bringing the heat this weekend at the 8th Annual Northwestern Mutual Chili Cook-Off. This isn’t your grandma’s watered-down, lumpy stew either: We’re talking over 80 different chili samples, each with its own unique meaty, spicy bite. While you’re enjoying unlimited tastes of chili goodness, stop by the World Chili Eating Challenge, where 10 major league eaters will have only six minutes to shovel as much con carne as they can down their throats. And if that doesn’t sound like a good time to you, just remember that proceeds from this event will go to Alex’s Lemonade Stand, an organization fighting to find cures for children battling cancer. – Deanna Ferrante noon-6 p.m. | Festival Park, 2911 E.

FEB. 15-21, 2017
B Y D A N S AVA G E
I’ve been reading your advice column in ‘The Coast’ in Halifax for a while, and it seems that most solutions to relationship problems revolve around sex. Everyone wants it or needs it, we should fuck before dinner, we can spice up our sex life in this certain way to be happy. What about someone who doesn’t want to have sex, ever? I’ve asked other people for advice, and the answer is usually “take one for the team,” have sex to keep them happy. Is that the only way I could find happiness in a relationship? It’s not something I want to do – but at this point, I don’t see any other options. All Alone Ace I’m a sex-advice columnist. Consequently, AAA, people tend to write me when sex (needing it, wanting it, getting it but not the kind you want, etc.) is the problem, and sex (in some new and improved form) is often-but-not-always the solution. I also get and respond to questions from asexuals, and I’ve urged sexuals not to regard asexuals as defective – or, for that matter, to view committed-but-sexless relationships as defective. So long as both people in the relationship are content and happy, it’s a good and healthy and functional relationship, whether the sex is vanilla or spicy or nonexistent. Strictly companionate marriages can be good marriages. As for “taking one for the team,” that’s not advice given only to asexuals. A woman who’s married to a foot fetishist, for instance, may be advised to “take one for the team” and let her husband perv on her feet. A vanilla guy married to a woman corrupted by Fifty Shades of Grey (it’s baaaaaack) may be advised to “take one for the team” and tie the wife up once in a while. And while there are certainly lots of asexuals out there taking one for the team – having sex to please/keep/shut up their partners (or allowing their partners to seek sex elsewhere) – you know who doesn’t have to take one for the team, ever? Asexuals with other asexuals. Dating another asexual is the other option, the obvious option, and may be the best option for you, AAA. (Don’t want to take one for the team, ever? Don’t draft anyone onto your team who wants one, ever.) A quick Google search brings up several asexual dating sites: asexualitic.com, asexualmatch.com, ace-book.net, asexualpals.com. You can also choose to identify as asexual – and search for other asexuals – on mainstream dating sites like OkCupid and Match. I can already hear you composing your response, AAA: Asexuals are just 1 percent of the population. There are 400,000 people in Halifax, which means there are 3,999 other asexuals. Sounds like a lot, but most will be too young, too old or unappealing for political or personal reasons (loves Kevin O’Leary, hasn’t seen Moonlight, picks their nose with 64
ORLANDO WEEKLY ● FEB. 15-21, 2017
an oyster fork). And a significant chunk of that number may not be aware – yet – that they’re asexual. So realistically, AAA, your local dating pool is much smaller than 3,999. But! Good news! There are 7.5 billion people on the planet! And 75 million of them are asexual! I have a good friend with a unique array of kinks – a crazy, specific and rare constellation of kinks – and he cast a wide net on kink dating apps. After he met someone on the other side of the world with all the same kinks and they hit it off via Skype and the guy provided my friend with references (put my friend in touch with friends who could vouch for him), my friend flew to the other side of the world to go on a first date. Two months later, he went back, stayed for a few months and then moved abroad to be with Mr. Kink Match on the Other Side of the World. My friend did things people are typically advised against – who gets on a 12-hour flight to go on a first date? – because he knew there weren’t many lids out there for his particular pot. Asexuality isn’t a kink, I realize, but you can and should cast a wide net, AAA, like my kinky expat friend. Don’t let geography limit you in your search. You may not be able to afford to do what my friend did – fly halfway around the world for a first date – but you can get your ass to the next province over if you hit it off with an asexual in New Brunswick or Quebec. Good luck. I’m a 22-year-old lesbian living in Utah. I’m finally going back to college this fall. I have autism (high functioning), and I couldn’t handle going to school full-time while working. Thus I will be stuck living at my parents’ house, as I couldn’t afford rent and living expenses on my own. The problem is, my parents are super Republican and religious. While I live at home, I can’t date (they are against me being gay), I can’t drink and I can’t watch movies with swears. They also force me to participate in daily scripture study, which I hate. I don’t know what to do. I can’t be myself or have any fun while I live at home because I’m afraid my parents will kick me out. But I can’t afford to move out, either. I’m shy and socially nervous, so I don’t have any friends who could help me out, and I can’t see living with roommates who are strangers. I’ll be 29 by the time I graduate, and I don’t want to live like this for that long. Any advice? Maybe I could work something out with my parents, but they are set in their ways and I don’t want to hurt them. Under Their Authoritarian Homophobia If they were just enforcing “their rules” about booze in their house, that would be one thing. But requiring your adult daughter not to date anyone, or not to be a lesbian at all, is just mean. (A lot of insane religious ●
“ PA I R O F AC E S ”
people believe homosexuality is an act, not an identity, so someone who isn’t currently having gay or lesbian sex isn’t actually gay or lesbian. By that standard, I haven’t been gay for hours.) And leveraging their daughter’s autism and social isolation and economic dependence against her in order to control her? Meaner still. You say you don’t want to hurt your parents – you’re a good daughter – but it’s clear your shitty parents don’t care if they hurt you. Typically my advice would be to tell your mean and shitty parents what they want to hear – to feel free to lie to them under duress – and then lean on your friends, do your own thing outside of the house and be careful not to get caught. But that’s not an option for you. So you’ll have to ask yourself what you value more: freedom now or getting your degree sooner rather than later. If it’s your freedom, move out, get a job, go to community college and take your time getting that degree. If it’s getting your degree before turning 30, knuckle under, spend a lot of late nights “studying in the library,” and go to the student resource center on your campus and ask if there are any campus services/ support groups for students with autism or Asperger’s syndrome. Who knows? You might meet some people who you could see yourself living with, as roommates and friends, and be able to get out of your parents’ house sooner rather than later. P.S. You’re in Utah, UTAH. If there’s an LGBT student group on your campus, go to the meetings and share your story. You might meet a gay Mormon boy with parents like yours – shitty and mean – who could use a fake girlfriend until he graduates, and you could use a fake boyfriend until you move out of mom and dad’s.
