Chow down, dude! A tony group of experts discuss the science behind vegetarian diets at tonight’s “To Veg or Not to Veg?” panel.

WHAT’S HAPPENING — BEFORE IT HAPPENS ... SC I ENCE F E S T

To Veg or Not to Veg?

As vegetarianism, veganism and everything in between have ballooned in popularity over the past decade, so has the debate over whether it’s actually, you know, benefiting anyone. The general line of thinking has been a resounding yes—if, for no other reason, than to offset the negative effects of the earth’s carnivores. Human beings eat twice as much meat as we did 30 years ago, and with that meat comes the nasty side-effects: More animals producing methane and other greenhouse gases, as well as physical waste we’ve got to find something to do with. In 2006, the UN calculated that animals bred specifically for their meat helped create an average of 18 percent of the global total of climate change emissions. There’s also the theory that veganism could help eradicate world hunger. According to a researcher at the Institute on the Environment at the University of Minnesota, if we eliminated grain-fed animals from our livestock, we would be able to produce crops to feed another 4 billion people throughout the world. But there’s a catch: Humans may actually need meat. An Austrian study concluded this year found that the vegetarian diet, “characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake of fruits and whole-grain products” actually brings with it elevated risks of allergies, mental health disorders and cancer. The study, ironically reported on April 1, found vegetarians had a lower quality of life than the rest of us and “require more medical treatment.” So, what’s the deal? That’s what Chemicals Are Your Friends founder Dr. Dorea Reeser, Ph.D; biochemistry professor Farzaneh Daghigh, Ph.D.; UPenn postdoctoral research fellow Jared Piazza and Whole Foods’ Katy Greenplan plan to explore at To Veg or Not to Veg? The Science Behind Vegetarianism. They’ll be speaking on whether vegetarianism is actually good for the world or just our piece of mind. And free food samples will be served. // RANDY LOBASSO Wed., April 30, 6pm. $5. The Pavilion at Franklin Square Park, Race Street between Sixth and Seventh sts. sciencefestival.org

Slint

There’s nothing like the reissue of a landmark album to renew interest in a band, especially when hardly anyone paid much attention the first time around. For the guys in Slint, it couldn’t have been easy to find a huge audience while navigating through the esoteric waters of post-rock during their early ‘90s “peak.” The band had already been around for five years when they released their sophomore full-length, Spiderland, in 1991. Comprised of a mere six songs yet totaling nearly 40 minutes in length, the record eschewed most musical disciplines in favor of testing how far the genre’s boundaries could be pushed. It was a sonic experiment characterized by sleight-of-hand time signatures, dissonant guitars and vocalist Brian McMahan alternating between spoken-word narratives and random bursts of emotional intensity like a poet overcoming bipolar disorder. The result was ahead of its time—so dynamically all over the place that no one, not even the media, knew what to do with it. Typical “internal strife” bullshit caused Slint to disband a year later, but throughout the remainder of the decade, Spiderland developed a cult following and wound up inspiring a whole new generation of bands like Mogwai, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Explosions in the Sky. That newfound popularity led to a brief reunion tour in 2007, and just last month, their label, Touch & Go, took advantage of the rise in vinyl sales by putting out a remastered deluxe edition of Spiderland, boasting additional Slint demos and outtakes, a coffee table book and a making-of documentary. Seeing them at UT could be all the evidence you need that even the underdogs can have their day in the sun. // JAKE ABBATE 8:30pm. $25. With Spires That In the Sunset Rise.

All of us have that uncle who drinks too much or that cousin with her foot wedged permanently in her mouth. And while it’s common knowledge that every family has its individual quirks, it’s also widely known that if any of us has anything in common at all, it’s that each of our clans has their own respective issues—and that there’s always someone, somewhere, who has it much worse. Fortunately, West Philly favorite Curio Theatre Company has teamed up with European powerhouse comedy troupe Spymonkey to present the North American premiere of Oedipussy, a riotous rendition of the Greek tragedy, to put it all in perspective. “I chose Oedipussy for Season Nine because of its broad appeal to audiences of all kinds,” says Paul Kuhn, Curio’s artistic director. “For those that know the story of Oedipus, its digression from the plot is truly hysterical. For those that don’t, the physical comedy is more than enough to keep you engaged and laughing.” Described as James Bond meets Oedipus with a bit of Barbarella sprinkled on top, this irreverent take on the classic tale of mistaken identities, riddles and prophecy has delighted the world over with its bold, visceral humor. Created in 2012 by Spymonkey’s Toby Park, Petra Massey, Aitor Basauri and Stephan Kreiss, Oedipussy is sure to delight local audiences and continue garnering the critical acclaim its daring storytelling undoubtedly deserves. // KENNEDY ALLEN

Sister Cities Park International Festival

Science Carnival on the Parkway

Did you know that while Philly is the City of Brotherly Love, it’s also the urban sister of 10 other cities worldwide? In fact, right there at 18th and the Parkway, there’s even an entire park devoted to the notion: Sister Cities Park. So, what the hell does it mean to be a sister city? A sisterly city relationship basically means that two cities separated by geography work to strengthen ties between them, including through diplomatic visits, economic agreements and cultural events meant to foster “peace” and “mutual understanding,” says the Center City District. To celebrate its 10 “siblings,” the Sister Cities International Festival promises to inform and enlighten Philadelphians of all backgrounds about just what the hell this vague relationship really means on a practical basis: by using the universal merriments of food, dance, art and music. Also, there will likely be cake. Scheduled performances include dancers from Japan, China and Russia, an Italian language lesson and aria by Lauren Cifoni and an awesomesounding Cameroonian Fashion Parade—all meant to reflect the diversity found in Philly’s sister cities: Florence, Italy; Tel Aviv, Israel; Torun, Poland; Tianjin, China; Incheon, Korea; Douala, Cameroon; Nizhny Novgorod, Russia; Kobe, Japan; Aix-en-Provence, France and Abruzzo, also found in Italy. Folks hoping to celebrate their own immigrant heritage or wanting to learn a thing or two about cities outside of the Northeast corridor media bubble should attend—and show some sisterly affection. // JOSH KRUGER Noon.

Drinko de Mayo!

M USIC

Wye Oak Wye Oak’s dreamy music evokes a pastoral autumnal eve. Their shimmery unhurried rock lolls and rolls, gently unfolding and enveloping frontwoman Jenn Wasner’s husky coo in gauzy atmosphere. The milky drift’s elegant without being grandiose, while Wasner’s words and vocals are another texture in the crisp swirl of sound. The duo formed in Baltimore eight years ago, though drummer/keyboardist Andy Stack now lives in Texas. They released three albums informed by the understated, psych-tinged beauty of The Dream Syndicate and Yo La Tengo. Their last album, 2011’s Civilian, became an underground sensation, the prickly distortion and dissonance of Wasner’s guitar the storm in the eye of soft glimmering melodies. But by the time they finished supporting the album, Wasner was burned out on guitar. Her investment and vulnerability are integral to her writing, so rather than push against it, she switched things up for Shriek, the new Wye Oak LP, for which Wasner ditches the guitar in favor of bass, and Stack exchanges his keyboards’ basslines for upper-register color and tones. (Stack plays his kit with his feet and right hand, fingering keyboard parts simultaneously with his left.) The new approach results in a creamier sound that recalls ‘80s new wave more than ‘90s neo psych, but offers much of the same appeal with less sharp corners. The songs betray the duo’s road-burned mindset, preoccupied with comfort, identity and peace. // CHRIS PARKER 8:30pm. $16-$18. With Braids.

WHY WE RUN THE BROAD STREET RUN IS THE NATION’S MOST POPULAR 10 MILES. RANDY LOBASSO WONDERS WHAT EVERYONE’S RUNNING FOR. PHOTOGRAPHY BY KYLE CASSIDY feedback@philadelphiaweekly.com

I

t’s a Saturday in mid-April, and I should have trimmed my toenails. As I stand in this one-bedroom apartment on Fairmount Avenue, my socks are soaked with blood. I catch a backward fall–on thin, beige carpet—with my palms. Lift my legs, peel the socks off. Rub them over my raw toes, crusted dry and brown, and toss them in an old Jansport backpack. Using both hands, I lift myself up and limp over cold tiles to a refrigerator and reach inside for a Molson Canadian. Step outside onto some Fairmount Avenue steps, twist the bottle open. Sip. The sun and wind are in contrast to each other today—the sun, hot; the wind, cold— which made for perfect running weather along Kelly Drive. It’s the first time I’ve made it from Fairmount Avenue and 24th Street to the East Falls bridge, and back along Martin Luther King Drive, in five years. It’s also the first time I’ve tried. And judging by the way the bottoms of my feet and the joints in my knees feel, I made the plunge too soon.

The friend whose house I stopped at after my jog says he figured my first move would have been for a glass of water. I tell him I’ve been craving this beer on his steps since crossing Montgomery Drive. I unplug some headphones but continue the Spotify app playlist through my phone’s small speaker—music based on the Descendents’ song “Coolidge”—I’ve perfected with up and down votes over the past few months, letting the next track play, though I can barely hear it. The short-term injuries and aches that result from my workout become worse as the af-

ternoon progresses. When I take a shower, for instance, I notice my inner thighs are rubbed raw, something I unsuccessfully attempted to correct around mile five with what I’ll call “wide strides.” (I must’ve looked funny.) I don’t remember the bottoms of my feet being in this much pain when I trained for the Broad Street Run five years ago. Suddenly, I wonder if I should’ve followed the Foot Locker salesperson’s advice months earlier and opted for the form-fitting soles as a supplement. Like some 44,000 other Philadelphians, Greater Philadelphia area-ers, out-of-staters,

Africans, Europeans, Asians and others from all over the world, I’m scheduled to run 10 miles down Broad Street, from Olney to the Navy Yard, on May 4, in the most popular 10-mile run in the United States. And, like many of the runners that’ll be there, I’m not really a runner, but I have my own motivations for putting myself through the time and pain that goes along with this most basic of exercises. Depending on who you’re talking to, the run is either just that—a run—or it’s so much more. It’s a goal to reach via a New Year’s resolution, an accomplishable way to fulfill a promise, a way of coping with getting


older, lingering motivation to force yourself to get up and get out of the house, and, ultimately, a way to avoid death’s shadow.

Broad Street Run participants come

pretty stressful job. I think [running is] the best stress reliever.” Studies have similarly shown that running about 15 miles per week can help prevent obesity, type-2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and some cancers. Exercise helps extend our life by reducing what we all know as “bad” cholesterol—LDL cholesterol— and lowering our blood pressure. Weight-bearing activities, which running is, also help build bone and muscle density, which helps put off debilitating diseases later in life. But if more of us are running, why is our overall well-being so poor? America is getting fatter, more diabetic, and we’re enjoying KFC DoubleDowns at higher rates than ever before. According to the Center for Disease Control, two-thirds of us are overweight or obese, and the average person in this country is about 23 pounds above their ideal weight. So, even though more of us are running, more of us also just aren’t. In many corners of the non-American Internet, it’s not uncommon for Europeans, Australians and Asians to refer to the people of our country, as a whole, as “Amerifats,”—which

Broomall mom decided to do Broad Street in January. She’d always been a runner, she says, but had never joined a race. “I reconnected with a few old friends during the sickness and death of our mutual friend,” she says—and through the tragedy, she found a reason to run. The friend: Ray. They first met in 1998. Opinionated and willful, she says, they were inseparable for several years. “Our relationship blossomed in one of the deepest relationships I have ever had,” she continues. That is, until their mutual stubbornness drove a wedge between them, and they stopped speaking. The mutual silence went on for 10 years, even though she thought about him every day during that time. Ray found out he had cancer on his 42nd birthday. He underwent several rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, then surgery; the cancer spread from his lymph nodes to his brain and spine. He never had the chance to proclaim remission. After reconnecting through an online forum for Grateful Dead fans, the two got back in touch. “Ray welcomed me back into his life with open arms,” Michele says. “I spent

Herbert recently bought a t-shirt with the outline of a dead body on it. “It says, ‘I run so I don’t kill people.’” says a lot about us. But the reaction to it also says a lot about us, in a good way. Fat acceptance is gaining more prominence in our society—which is a positive reaction to unfair media portrayals of men and women in magazines and elsewhere—but obesity and a healthy weight are two different things entirely. Obesity often brings with it many health risks. Excess weight has the propensity to lead to some of the same things running works against: heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and some forms of cancer. Weighing a third more than your ideal weight, a 2009 study found, could take three years off your life. And as Americans, as a whole, accept their excess weight as a new normal, those whose obesity could have serious effects on their health often don’t understand it. Interestingly, though: Every one of the people I spoke to for this story named something other than weight loss or pure mental health as their prime motivating factor in signing up for Broad Street.

Keturah Church is a

21-year-old nursing student and rugby player at the College of New Jersey. She recently had back surgery and was told she wouldn’t get back on the rugby field, so decided to sign up for the Broad Street Run after her school’s Christmas break. “It was to take my mind off having to be on the sideline for every upcoming game, give me a reason to expedite recovery—and also a platform for my battle cry of victory over surgery,” she says. “All the training and then the end goal of finishing this run is proof to myself and others that limitations are just that, limitations, not a disability.” Michele C. wants to run for a cause, too. The

the next year taking care of him and watching him slowly die. We were able to talk about our past and our regrets, which healed some of the wounds.” Ray had another friend, Joe, from whom he had been estranged. And the night before he died, Michele met Joe as he came to Ray’s bedside to make peace. When Ray died, Michele, Joe and Joe’s girlfriend, Erica, created a support group to deal with the tragedy. After helping each other cope, Michele says, her appetite returned, and they decided to begin working out. Mourning became running, and the three signed up for the Broad Street Run lottery together. “Keeping busy and focused has helped me cope with Ray’s death since I don’t have time to sit and sulk. Plus, running helps bring clarity and stillness to my mind,” she says. “I find the waves of grief sweep over me the most when I am alone. I’m not trying to ignore the reality of losing a loved one by overbooking my schedule [but] running has provided me with a positive outlet for my emotions. I still have those dark moments, but it’s more fun to see the light. Knowing I need to strap on my sneaks, get my butt outdoors to start running has helped guide me through grieving.” What Michele is experiencing is something the American Psychological Association has referred to as The Exercise Effect. There’s good epidemiological data to suggest that active people are less depressed than inactive people. “People who were active and stopped tend to be more depressed than those who maintain or initiate an exercise program,” James Blumenthal, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist at Duke Uni-

from all over the place, but for those within the city, it’s an unspoken (or sometimes spoken) rule that if you can run the Schuylkill River Loop—from the Art Museum to the East Falls Bridge and around on MLK Drive, back to the Museum, a total of about 8.5 miles—you’ll be able to finish Broad Street. The total mileage is less (Broad Street is about 10 miles), but the terrain is tougher in that it includes some inclines, mostly, and Broad Street is unique in that it’s almost exclusively downhill. The herd of runners clotting Kelly Drive along Boathouse Row on a given pre-May weekend or after work hours tends to thin out after the Girard Street Bridge. Past the Temple and St. Joe’s boathouses, the Strawberry Mansion bridge, it can get pretty silent, save the cars whizzing by at illegal speeds. By the time you hit East Falls, the people start picking back up, but many of them are on bike tours of the city, fishing in the Schuylkill, walking east from Manayunk, or hitting In Riva, a restaurant near North Ferry Road. That’s also when a run along Kelly Drive goes from anxious to relaxing. My breaths are in place, my cramps are gone, and now, it’s just me and the oft-ignored Philaelphia greenery. After getting up there, you can turn back, sure, but there’s no shortcut home. Pretty soon, I begin thinking about my inevitable beer and outdoor sitting. My thirst for a beer at the end of my trip is not unique. After all, beer is good. It’s also something that brings together hordes of runners everywhere. Just ask someone in a local running club, like the West Philly Runners, who are well known for grabbing beers after their six-mile jogs; or the more-obviously named Fishtown Beer Runners. The latter group was begun, it’s told, as a reason to test out a study done by Manuel J. Castillo-Garzon, MD, professor of medical physiology, who found that beer and water have similar rehydration effects, then created a group which would use the idea to motivate runners, run to a tavern, and drink quality beers. Beer is just one way to get people off their asses, though. Philosophers, writers, doctors and everyone in between have been pondering exercise for millennia. And if not for mental health, then for physical. Fourteenth-century Italian poet Francesco Petrarca taught in his 1354 work “Protest Against the Doctor” that exercise is a “natural remedy to replace medicines that poison the body” Closer to home: In Philadelphia in 1772, physician Benjamin Rush recommended sports and exercise in his “Sermons to Gentlemen Upon Temperance & Exercise,” which laid the foundation of exercise and fitness in preventative medicine. Since then, we’ve heard it all: Staying physically active will keep us thinner, make us happier, feel us better. So it makes sense that the Broad Street Run, and mass exercises like it, have become exceedingly popular in recent years. Jim Marino, the race director at the Philadelphia Parks and

Recreation Department, and in charge of the Broad Street Run, has some theories as to why it’s gotten so popular, with potential racers now entering a lottery system just to put their body through pain and gain. Other than the light cost factors and the run’s single road making it unique, he says there’ve been two deciding factors: Money and women—not necessarily in that order. “Women in the running industry have skyrocketed,” he says, and “our numbers really jumped after the recession in 2008.” Between 2008 and 2013, the Broad Street Run’s popularity increased 67 percent—and the demand for runners wasn’t limited to Philadelphia. The Sports & Fitness Industry Association says that in 2012, 51.4 million Americans went running at least once, and 29.4 million Americans ran at least 50 days during the year. That’s an increase of almost 3 percent from the previous year. Over the past 20 years, according to Running USA, every year, save 2003, saw an increase in the number of finishers of U.S. running events. And in 2012, of the 15.5 million finishers, 8.6 million of them—more than half—were women. In 1990, for comparison’s sake, women made up about a third of all finishers. Regarding the money, Marino suspects “more people had the opportunity to train” during the recession and the down-economic years of 2008-2013. “They were running off frustration and things like that. They were getting it out through exercise while they were waiting to get back into the workforce. With that, they developed a passion for running and have been there ever since.” Psychologically, that makes sense, since economic downturns often have an effect on happiness. But James Herbert, head of the psychology department at Drexel University, says it’s hard to draw a direct cause-effect relationship between the recession and running. One thing, though, is clear: The so-called “runner’s high” is not just a figure of speech. It’s a rush of endocannabinoids—the same system in our brain researchers have studied to understand medical marijuana’s positive effects on the human psyche. And I can attest that it’s spectacular. It can also bring about long-term mental health advantages. “We do now know that aerobic exercise has really profound mental health benefits,” says Herbert. “It can work well with depression and anxiety, as well as even sub-clinical levels of anxiety. Most people have some degree of anxiety.” A runner himself, Herbert notes that in many cases, exercise three days a week can work just as well as anti-depressants prescribed by someone like him. He’s done the Broad Street Run, the Rock n’ Roll Marathon—which he calls, “my newest obsession”—and is a regular at the Narberth 5K. “For me, it’s stress,” he says. “I don’t have problems with depression or anxiety, but it’s the best way of coping with stress.” It’s gotten to the point where he recently bought a t-shirt with the outline of a dead body on it. “It says, ‘I run so I don’t kill people,’” he muses. “I don’t think I would kill anybody, but I have a


versity, told the APA in 2011. To figure this out, he conducted studies which assigned adults with “major depressive disorder” into four groups: home-based exercise, supervised exercise, antidepressant therapy and placebo pills. After four months, patients in exercise and antidepressant groups had the highest rates of remission. “Exercise,” he concluded for Psychosomatic Medicine in 2007, “was generally comparable to antidepressants for patients with major depressive disorder.” And yet: At this point, one in ten Americans over 12 years old is on anti-depressants, a 400 percent increase since 1988. “Depression is common,” wrote Roni Caryn Rabin for the New York Times in 2013, “and our economic struggles have added to our stress and anxiety.”

and Rec, suggested that the economic meltdown of 2008 might have prompted a running boom, I thought back to that time in my own life: I was unemployed, had no health insurance, declined applying for unemployment compensation, and, well, had the time to run. So I did. I was trying to get into freelance writing and had been pretty unsuccessful thus far, since the only things I’d penned by myself at that point had been published unpaid: a handful of opinion pieces for the Philadelphia Daily News and others for a liberal news blog. I had a couple years’ experience in a writing-based job, but was applying for local freelance gigs alongside hundreds of other out-of-work writers. I got kicked off the website e-Lance after a few months of failing query letters. I had a couple interviews for jobs in the city and outside it, all of which came up zero. Awkward, stomach-churning follow-up calls with HR departments post-two or three interviews are memories I wish I could erase. I ate ramen noodles every day and considered asking my roommates for help paying rent. I never did. A job would always come through just in time, and by the early summer—after I’d successfully finished the Broad Street Run that May—I finally got an online writing job at which

I could work up to 40 hours per week, at $9 per hour. Things began taking off a little bit more then, and I stopped running completely—only to take it back up in February of this year. I’ve never taken an antidepressant and just recently visited a doctor for the first time since 2007, after going about five years without health insurance, then spending another 18 months putting off a doctor’s visit due to laziness and procrastination. When I really think about it, my motivation regarding the Broad Street Run might be just a general urge to get into better shape—but, you know, it might also be about death. On my 30th birthday last summer, I had a long, one-sided conversation about dying. I know—that’s about as clichéd as 30th birthdays get, especially at 4 a.m. But it wasn’t a conversation about my death. It was mostly about my dog’s. See, my dog, Digby, is young, but I know he’ll likely die around a dozen years from now, and that’s not something with which I’m prepared to deal. I’m pretty sure I’m going to be one of those people who goes out and adopts a new dog within days of his departure, which will be a disaster. I can’t keep that from happening. All I can do is maintain my momentum. I find that easier to do, maybe, if it’s literal. Running this year feels much different than running five years ago. For one, I’m doing it while, if anything, over-employed—PW’s team is small and furiously busy, and I teach English, too. But running, especially with Digby, has become a new escape for me, as I train for this run and, hopefully, the marathon in November. Spending a large portion of my day behind a desk, then spending all night on a couch or barstool—or at my other desk—can make it easy to forget all the beauty this city has to offer, whether along Kelly Drive or Richmond Street, where I’ve taken to running, as well. Running may not change the economy, stave off death or bring back lost friends. But it may help keep us around a little longer, alive and sane. It’s probably worth it. n

DJ Cassidy’s spinning at the SundayOUT! bash.

Let’s start at the end: Equality Forum will conclude at weekend’s end with SundayOUT!, a wildly diverse celebration at the Piazza. The region’s largest LGBT street festival will feature over 100 local artisans, food and drink purveyors and community outreach organizations — not to mention

six hours’ worth of live entertainment from an esteemed group of performers. Chester native and rising pop sensation Jamai Mosley will croon before DJ K.Ash, one of Philly’s most prominent LGBT club DJs, takes the stage. The Fuego Dance Company, the city’s largest salsa studio, will lend some exhilarating flare to the event. The most spectacular show will come last, though: DJ Cassidy (pictured above), who’s performed at all sorts of A-list gatherings, from Beyoncé and Jay Z’s wedding to President Obama’s

inauguration. He’ll be spinning cuts from his album Paradise Royale, due out this June. / DAN GELB

We’ll hear from the key marriage equality champs.

Pennsylvania is the only state in the northeast that still denies LGBT couples marriageequality rights, and the legal battle to make

sure that ends is taking place in several legal theaters. First, there’s Whitewood v. Wolf, a federal marriage equality lawsuit filed in July 2013 on behalf of 21 commonwealth residents. That suit, brought with the help of the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania, is the same one our state attorney general, Kathleen Kane, recused herself from last year. Then, there’s the case of one Montgomery County clerk and his badassery: After Kane recused herself from the Whitewood case, Montco clerk Bruce

D. Hanes began issuing marriage licenses to LGBT couples on his own damn say-so, till the state shut down his operation. And finally, there’s Equality Forum’s lawsuit against the state, which seeks to force Pennsylvania to accept marriages conducted in other states. The suit was brought by Cara Palladino and Isabelle Barker, who were married in Massachusetts in 2005, then relocated to Bryn Mawr, upon which, suddenly, the law said they weren’t married anymore. If you think you’ve heard all there is to hear about this stuff, you’re wrong. Equality Forum’s National Legal Panel, 1pm Saturday at the University of the Arts, will offer a number of fresh perspectives. Among the moderators and panelists: Adam Romero, who represented the plaintiffs in the first case to declare recognition of same-sex marriage benefits in veterans’ affairs; Robert Heim, lead counsel in the Hanes case; Mark Aronchick, lead counsel in the Whitewood case; Thomas W.

A key component to the Equality Forum festivities here in Philadelphia is the organization’s black-tie fête, the International Equality Dinner. Each year, the formal party gathers together queer folks of all stripes and their supporters (a.k.a. reasonable human beings who happen to be straight). This year is no different: At the National Museum of Jewish American History this Saturday, Equality Forum presents awards to three recipients—who seem to comprise a particularly interesting mix. Not surprising: The International Business Leadership Award is going to TD Bank. For years, the North American bank has demonstrated a commitment to diversity and inclusion toward queer folks, mostly through anti-bullying programs. The bank’s equality-centered bona fides come “from the top down,” Equality Forum’s executive director, Malcolm Lazin, tells PW, noting that DiversityInc magazine named TD Bank

“one of the top most diverse and inclusive corporations in North America.” Kathleen Kane will be honored at the affair, too—with the Forum’s Distinguished Equality Award. The Pennsylvania attorney general deserves the recognition, Lazin says, because of her political courage in refusing to defend the state’s gay marriage ban in federal court. “It was something she could have ducked,” he points out, by claiming her position as A.G. required her to defend the state’s gay marriage ban. But she didn’t—and, in fact, her refusal to defend a law she found unconstitutional was dictated by her primary responsibility to uphold the U.S. Constitution. That’s exactly what “her oath of office requires,” Lazin explains. The surprise, really, is the recipient of the International Role Model: The National Hockey League. “It may sound counterintuitive,” Lazin acknowledges, because of the erroneous cultural perception of tough jocks being anti-gay. “But the NHL is by far the most LGBT progressive of all the professional sports leagues. They have a program called ‘You Can Play,’ which encourages people to be out in sports.” Most heartening of all, he says, is the fact that every team in the NHL participates in “You Can Play.” The program also “provides diversity training for all [NHL] rookies and for anyone who”—he pauses—“needs some education.” Thankfully, that type of education is paying off, with the NHL players’ association saying that 95 percent of all players would “welcome an openly gay member” to their respective team.

In 2005, Canada became the first non-European nation to legalize same-sex marriage with the enactment of the Civil Marriage Act. Three different Canadian prime ministers and Parliaments have supported the legislation since its initial enactment, ensuring that same-sex marriage in Canada is a pillar of their citizens’ civil liberties. On Saturday, the Equality Forum will hold a discussion with five distinguished Canadian panelists, sharing insights on Canada’s same-sex marriage journey and what the United States can learn from our neighbor to the North. Among the panelists are David Walberg, the CEO of Canada’s largest gay media group, Pink Triangle Press, and Bob Gallagher, the cofounder of the Campaign for Equal Families and Canadians for Equal Marriage. Walberg and Gallagher will be joined by executive director of Egale and LGBT advocate Helen Kennedy, immigration lawyer El-Farouk Khaki and LGBT lawyer Cynthia Petersen. All five panelists have played important roles in Canada’s progress to equality—and will share their journeys during this free conference. Sat., May 3, 2:30 pm.

People of faith are pro-LGBT, too.

Over the past decade, more and more Americans have come to believe that a traditional god-centric spirituality and being queer are not mutually exclusive ideas. Which only makes sense: Being queer and

being straight are equally natural human states, and spirituality crosses all sorts of human categories. For some, this means elaborate displays of specific god-based faiths; for others, it means a personal relationship with the cosmos or a wonderment toward the beauty of science. One way or another, though—religious or secular—we tend to reach for a larger universe. Right now, the United Church of Christ, a Christian faith denomination, is engaged in a legal battle in North Carolina. The UCC is claiming the state has infringed on their religious liberties by prohibiting the church from performing same sex marriages. So it’s rather timely that, this weekend, Equality Forum plans to bring together members of various faiths at the annual National Religious Colloquy. Four national leaders of human faith will discuss the “reform and changes in tenor” that currently transform the “relationship between homosexuality” and several mainstream faiths, including Roman Catholicism, the Mormon Church and the United Methodist Church. Moderated by local Rabbi Linda Holtzman, formerly the rabbi of Congregation Mishkan Shalom and now a leader with the Reconstructionist Rabbincal College, the panel includes: Gerald Argetsinger, the founder of the Gay Mormon Literature Project and a professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology; Sister Jeannine Gramick, a cofounder of New Ways Ministry and an executive coordinator for the National Coalition of American Nuns; Reverend Frank Schaefer, a United Methodist minister who gained national attention for officiating his son’s same sex wedding; and, Leonard Swidler, a professor of Catholic thought and interreligious dialogue at Temple University. The panel has serious spiritual bona fides, and given the latest battle in the struggle for gay rights having a faith-based connection there in North Carolina, this panel looks to be particularly timely. And besides, it might not be a bad idea for folks to start learning about religious rites and equal rights; after all, Equality Forum executive director Lazin says to PW that gay marriage is “absolutely” coming to Pennsylvania. In fact, he goes further: “It’s only a matter of when.” / J.K.

Year of Beer

All About Flavor

The hottest beers of this warm season promise sweetness, spice—and everything nice. Sip, sip away.

Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA. American IPAs are at their best when they spotlight the fruity, almost juicy nature of modern hops rather than focusing solely on bracing bitterness. Fresh Squeezed IPA, from Colorado’s Deschutes, is one of those IPAs. Brewed with massive amounts of Citra and Mosaic hops, this pleasantly pungent brew offers intense aromas of tropical fruits. Close your eyes and you’d think you were peeling a grapefruit and oranges. The almost reddish color suggests more malt sweetness than is actually present, but there is enough to easily balance out the hop bitterness, giving this ale an easy drinkability often not present in aggressive IPAs. With such good balance, this all-purpose IPA is suitable for all occasions—with meals, at the ball game, or just quaffing with friends, you’ll want to give this one a try. It’s currently available at The Industry, Flanigan’s Boathouse, City Tap House and Tria Washington Sq. West.

Dogfish Head World Wide Stout. The now iconic Dogfish Head built their reputation on so-called extreme beers like 120 Minute IPA and others. Perhaps the granddaddy of those extreme beers is World Wide Stout, an inky, preposterously strong brew that was once the strongest in the world. These days it falls short of the title at “only” 18 percent ABV, equal to four light beers crammed into one bottle, but the truth is that you’re not going to be drinking a beer like this for its potency, anyway. Brews like this are sippers—and you won’t be able to do anything BUT sip, given the intensity of the taste. Imagine wine-soaked cigars dipped in a thin layer of chocolate, and you’ll have a good idea of what you’re in store for. This may be beer, but it has more in common with a port wine. Drink accordingly. Though this beer is now on hiatus and is no longer being produced, it was recently tapped at Sidecar Bar, so go grab some before it’s gone.

Allagash James Bean. Occasionally, you run into a beer that is difficult to discuss without descending into the sort of hyperbolic gushing that comes over a person when they have just met the president of the United States or that quirky woman from the insurance commercials. This is one of those beers. And it’s a doozy. James Bean takes a beer that is already world-class, the bourbon-barrel aged tripel called Curieux, and injects it with massive amounts of cold-brewed Maine coffee. Coffee, bourbon, oak, notes of vanilla, Belgian yeast—cramming this much into a beer can often result in a messy, unfocused brew. Not this one. Potent notes of coffee take charge and keep all that other flavor in check. The bourbon and oak are there, but toned down. Muted tones of grass and bready sweetness ensure it has wonderful drinkability. The whole package is as close to perfection as beers get. Try it at Monk’s Café.

Victory Swing Session Saison. So-called “session” beers are all the rage these days, and for good reason: They offer a flavorful alternative to mass market lagers while still boasting only modest alcohol levels. That’s good news for those who like to spend long spring afternoons soaking up sun, conversation and drinks. Beers like Victory Swing Session are there to help you do it. You’d never know this herbal, spicy brew has the same barely-there alcohol content of mass market swill. Both the taste and aroma suggest grassy fields, fresh spring hay, zesty lemons and spiced bread. Lots of grapefruit and other citrus in the aroma, while the tangy, crisp finish boasts touches of grass and fruit, with a faint hint of tartness at the end. Yet more proof that Pennsylvania is a great brewing state, this is a beer built for spring! Try it at City Tap House, Fox and Hound, The Gaslight, Watkins Drinkery and other locations.

Yards La Colombe Coffee Love Stout. Winter is traditionally the time of year you see coffee stouts hitting the shelves, but when a coffee stout is good, any time of the year is the right time. And this beer is really damn good. Philly’s own Yards has garnered plenty of praise for its Chocolate Love Stout, and rightfully so. It’s a rich, tasty brew that serves as an excellent example of a classic English stout. As the name implies, La Colombe Coffee Love Stout, aka Corsica Love Stout, is a version of that same beer infused with coffee. The slight lactic tang of this English stout blends wonderfully with the bitter roast of java, too, making for an excellent late night brew for coffee lovers. This beer is a draft exclusive and will be available for a limited time only, so look for it at Tria Taproom and other locations. // ERIC SAN JUAN

DRINK CITY Drinking Games

May Madness: Festive Fare for Beer Lovers Your favorite local bars, pubs and taverns have some ultra-cool events on tap this month. Here’s where the gettin’s sure to be good.

1

Victoria Freehouse Pie and a Pint Thursdays. The British love their pies. There’s pork pie, cottage pie, mince pie, lamb mint pie—basically, the animal flesh you shove between two pieces of bread, they bake in pie form. So to celebrate the ancient European coastal tradition of inserting oddly-spiced meat and potatoes in a tin, covering it in bread and heating it up, The Victoria Freehouse in Old City has created their own tradition: Every Thursday, when you head to the British-themed watering hole on Front Street, you can enjoy a freshly-baked British pie and a 20 oz. Imperial pint for $15. Their particular pie combination includes Cornish pastries, lamb mint, potato pasties, steak and ale, and chicken mushroom. Thursdays, 5pm-midnight. $15. The Victoria Freehouse, 10 S. Front St. victoriafreehouse.com

Meet & Greet & Drink La Trappe. The Netherlands’ La Trappe beer makers at De Koningshoeven Brewery are crossing the world and hitting Philadelphia for an event at the Belgian. La Trappe itself has operated as a monastic brewery going all the way back to the 1884, and the beers are inspired by, and benefit, the monastery way of life. At the Fairmount bar will be Anthony Van Hecke, export manager of La Trappe; Adam Shulte of Artisanal Imports; and Andrew Taggart from Shangy’s. All expert beer makers and bringers-of-beer will be on hand to tell you what you’re drinking and what’s so special about it. They’ll be pouring La Trappe Jubilaris (a Belgian dark ale), Witte (a white ale) and Quad (a quadruple ale) at this pay-as-you-go event. Sat., May 3. 9am-7pm. $50. Belgian Café, 601 N. 21st St. thebelgiancafe.com

Philly Homebrew Big Brew Event. May 3 marks the AHA’s Big Brew, and The Philly HomeBrew Outlet will be celebrating The National Homebrew Day event in their very own parking lot starting at 9am. The shop took home the title of Philly Beer Scene’s “Homebrew Shop of the Year” and will be participating for a third year in a row, brewing one share of five gallons of a Russian Imperial Stout inspired by Left Hand Brewing’s “Wake Up Dead” and a one-year barrel-aged lambic brewed using a 12-step turbid mash and aged for 364 days. All the same recipes, barrels and “bugs” will be used. Bringing your own equipment is required, and the event is limited to 10 shares. Sat., May 3, 9am-7pm. $50. Philly Homebrew Outlet, 1447 N. American St. phillyhomebrew.com

5

11th Anniversary Party & Big Brew Day. Barren Hill Tavern & Brewery and Yards Brewing Company will be partnering for National Homebrew Day— and they’ll be doing it outside the Old Eagle Tavern. The event will also mark the 11th anniversary of both breweries, and they’ll be celebrating by taking $1 off all draft beers all day long with a complimentary brunch buffet.The Barren Hill Tavern & Brewery is based in Lafayette Hill and will be featuring selections from their 30 drafts >>>

Skinky Sunday with Tomme Arthur. The Nodding Head Brewery is one of our favorite places, and cheese is one of our favorite things. So, we’d be remiss not to recommend their Stinky Sunday event with California’s Port Brewing and Lost Abbey head brewer Tomme Arthur. Arthur is well-known in the beer community for creating fruit-spiked, sour and oak-aged beers, and Serious Eats claims a single taste of one of his

beers will both expand your palate and blow your mind. The event, which takes place from 2 to 4pm, will pair some stinky cheeses with “ridiculously good beers,” as the bar says. Beers that’ll be specifically paired with the cheeses for a strong beginning and palate-cleansing finish will be featured at this pay-as-you-go event—which, by the way, is not on a Sunday. Fri., May 2, 2-4pm. Nodding Head Brewery, 1516 Sansom St. noddinghead.com

The brunch at Sabrina’s new Wynnewood location catches Brian off guard. By Brian Freedman // bfreedman@philadelphiaweekly.com

I

would have bet a thousand dollars even before it opened that the new Wynnewood location of Sabrina’s Café, which already has three popular sites around Philadelphia, would be a success in relatively short order. Indeed, it has come to pass: Full tables are the norm, and on weekends, especially around peak brunch-time, a wait can be expected. This is no surprise, because the reputation that Sabrina’s boasts—especially for breakfast and brunch, which they’ve always excelled at—is widely known enough that word on the street prior to the Wynnewood café’s opening in February was that it could really do no wrong. Its dinners, I’ve heard, are very good—but given Sabrina’s reputation for excellent breakfasts and brunches, I decided to focus my attention there, the better to compare it to its more urban siblings. Sadly, the brunches I experienced at the Main Line outpost didn’t live up to that reputation: Too many dishes were marred either by weak execution or just a simple lack of conceptual rigor. My high hopes were dashed by my first bite of an omelet seemingly devoid of seasoning, browned on the outside and suffering from a terminally watery interior. Fillings were unseasoned, under-seasoned or seasoned unevenly; there was little consistency from one bite to another. Even a side of fried potatoes was characterless, the beautifully mahogany-toned bites without enough salt and crowned with a dollop of caramelized onions, not mixed with them. A bacon-blue cheese frittata was better in that department—the two key components, of course, are plenty flavorful on their own—but the eggs themselves were offputtingly dry. Issues with cooking times need to be worked on as well. A recent “Game of Thrones Edition” of brunch specials featured a fantastically named “Red Wedding Marriage Feast Special Breakfast” of “French toast-dipped sweet potato-pineapple strata with ricotta, parmesan cheese and caramelized red onions.” Sounded interesting, and how could I turn down the further promised lily-gilding of grilled ham, wilted spinach, eggs over easy and an “artichoke-basil pesto béchamel sauce”? Well, I should have, because what arrived was a lifeless, plodding strata base crowned with two eggs so overcooked that the yolks were chalky and set, as far from running as a morbidly obese octogenarian engrossed by an all-day TV marathon of old Murder She Wrote reruns. I sent it back, and shortly thereafter a more proper duo of eggs appeared. But the funhouse béchamel was still there, jiggling like cellulite and not really tasting like either béchamel or like any sort of pesto I’d want to consume. Thankfully, there were bright spots as well. Strawberry pancakes had just the right balance of fluffiness and chew. And a pork sandwich I took home for lunch was very nice: sweet and subtly smoky and exactly as moist as I’d hoped. The 24-hour marinade and homemade barbecue sauce are notably good. Sweet potato fries were also well-prepared. But overall, I was left with a sense of disappointment with the breakfast and brunch. The space is welcoming, its floors the color of sun-bleached wood and its sun-splashed walls a cheery shade of yellow. The staff, too, is helpful and understanding.

Together we are a Rainbow of Inspiration

he list of fashion dignitaries who existed in Patrick Kelly’s orbit is almost as inspiring as his work: Bette Davis, Grace Jones, Pat Cleveland, Pierre et Gilles, Vanessa Williams, Bill T. Jones and—in Kelly’s imagination—Josephine Baker. His runway shows were full of voguing, vibrant celebrations of life and, well, love. His models adored him, the crowds loved his work, and his designs were clearly necessities of expression. Still, Kelly’s legacy as a designer is one that seems oft forgotten, if not downplayed, when folks talk about fashion stars of the 1980s. That could simply be because he’s no longer here, and his line didn’t survive him. The visionary from Vicksburg died far too soon from AIDS in 1990, but his legacy is getting a boost with Runway of Love, a new exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The nearly 80 works that comprise six sections are each timeless and stylish; in fact, taking an earnest stroll through the looks, one could point to dozens of trends that have been either co-opted or were brazen nods to designers who Kelly revered. You’ll find overalls, denim dresses, full-length jumpsuits, trenches and one-seam simplicity amid celebrations of Chanel, Madame Grès and Elsa Schiaparelli. The exhibit comes as a gift from Bjorn Guil Amelan, Kelly’s business and life partner, and Jones himself. And while this exhibit isn’t explicitly gay, the queer flavors are up at the front—and they’re really rich and savory. Kelly grew up with a love of women, namely his mother and grandmother. The former was a home economics teacher who taught him how to draw; her mama was a cook who brought her grandson fashion magazines from the homes where she served. He developed a deep love for black memorabilia and iconography, a theme he’d use to great effect in future collections, and for the buttons his grandmother would sew on his clothes after he’d lose them. He dabbled in Atlanta and New York City in his late teens and early ‘20s, but it was his love affair with Paris that would catapult his career in the early ‘80s—a relationship prompted by a one-way ticket, given to him in 1979 by Cleveland, his supermodel friend. The first chronological “room” of Runway of Love, “Fast Fashion,” is comprised of work Kelly sold “on the streets” in France, items he got his model friends to wear around the city as moving advertisements: simple knits, raw but expertly cut and draped cotton jersey, a stunning one-seam overcoat inspired by Balenciaga and Issey Miyake. These looks caught the attention of Elle magazine and garnered him a six-page spread. Impressed, Bergdorf Goodman bought his collection in 1985 and threw him in the window that showcased new designers. “He was always thinking of new ideas,” exhibit organizer Dilys Blum told attendees during a guided preview last week. “Kelly was a great storyteller, and one of his business associates said that he had a mind that just didn’t stop.” There’s hope, with Runway of Love running through to the fall, that Kelly may finally gain a little deserved recognition. “His official career was so brief, and he’s no longer a brand,” Blum added, “and hopefully this show will put him back into fashion history.” Fashion and design history, though—a story that could not be told without queer voices—never really championed Kelly, perhaps because of his queerness or perhaps because he

was black. As several characters in Jennie Livingston’s iconic 1990 documentary Paris is Burning point out, it’s already hard being a black man in America, but if you’re gay, it’s going to be even harder. Blum’s take? Kelly’s queerness wasn’t as big a factor as his race. (“He would make no bones about being gay,” she maintained.) He discovered he was HIV positive right before signing a gigantic contract with Guernica Fashion, an achievement he may have never earned if he’d disclosed it. “In the ‘80s,” Blum said, “no one talked about AIDS.” Kelly’s narrative, however, is one that’s as inspiring as it is woefully undertold. From the deep South to France’s Chambre Syndicale du Prêt-á-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode, a theme to which he always held dear is “Nothing is impossible.” The phrase is etched on Kelly’s tombstone in the Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. Thankfully, in Runway of Love, he lives on. The mixed bag of influences that show up in the headto-toe looks that populate the Perelman Building are as capriciously creative as Kelly’s “Love List,” a slew of inspirations in his life that he must’ve drawn upon for his work. It is full of ethereal and unconnected muses: “Fried Chicken and “Foie Gras” and “Fauchon Croissants,” “Pretty Girls and Valentine Candy Boxes and Fried Catfish,” “Parties,” “Music: Gospel, Loud, Classical, Rap, Jazz, Soul, Luther Vandross,” “Big Overalls” and “Fun.” C’mon, don’t you want to take a walk through Kelly’s world?  Through Sun., Nov. 30.

SCREEN REVIEW

Dancing in Jaffa Dancer and teacher Pierre Dulaine has a passion for getting kids to dance in the hopes it will instill discipline, love of the craft and understanding. His Dancing Classrooms program was first established in New York City in 1994 and is currently used by more than 500 schools nationwide. He’s traveled with the message, bringing the program to Northern Ireland (his father’s home country) in order to teach students of differing backgrounds to dance with—and, one assumes, respect—one another. In Dancing in Jaffa, Dulaine visits his Tel Aviv hometown with the same goal, facing seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Far beyond shouting down the usual cases of schoolkid cooties, Jaffa’s got an increasingly-strained political situation, institutional prejudice from half the intended participants and cultural mores about dancing from the other half. As such, the drama isn’t in seeing how the dancing progresses—it’s in whether the dancing can happen at all. In trying to give everyone their due, Dancing in Jaffa becomes a jack-of-all-trades, keeping tabs on standout children (theaffable Lois, complicated Noor, charming Alaa) while laying out political attitudes, where protest marches are less revealing than smaller conversations. It’s telling to listen to a girl casually mention, “If my dad sees me with an Arab, he’ll kill me,” or Dulaine chatting with a cab driver, or Alaa’s mother trying to visit family in Gaza. The film often shifts from Dulaine’s personal history to cultural current-affairs to a feel-good story about kids who might just get along after all. But for every shot of smiling children, there’s a close-up of an armed school guard, and altogether, there’s enough unrest that Dulaine’s hopes seem beyond his scope. While the movie ends on a hopeful note, the problems these children face leave an impression of an uncertain future. (Genevieve Valentine) REVIEW

Blue Ruin Early in Blue Ruin, drifter/protagonist Dwight tells his sister, “I’m not used to talking this much,” and she replies wearily: “That’s what people do.” It’s a fitting enough characterization for the opening act of this taut thriller. Dwight’s living a shell of a life, sleeping in his car and breaking into houses to find baths and meals. When he gets news that the man convicted of killing his parents is due to be released from prison, Dwight sets out for revenge almost by reflex, which turns out to be an ugly wakeup call. But this isn’t a story of a single-minded loner prepared to deliver comeuppance. Much of Blue Ruin’s pervasive suspense comes from the practical considerations and quiet horrors of vengeance. Director Jeremy Saulnier is well-versed in the visuals of the genre; he’s a believer in the power of a slow pan, and even quiet shots of the titular car sliding along a misty road feel like impending doom long before Dwight ever hoists his first gun. And oh, are there a lot of guns. Blue Ruin isn’t so much preoccupied as pointedly occupied with them. They mark each turn in the wider spiral of revenge, and plot points hinge largely on the process—and ease—of coming by them, their nearly-comical numbers, and the damage they do (Dwight’s staggered by the devastation wrought by a single bullet). They’re also the source of much of the film’s slender streak of dark comedy. One particularly plain-speaking standoff nails the truth of it: The one with the gun decides what the truth is. A story of the impossible mess revenge often becomes, equally interested in cycles of violence and the long, slow periods of dread that wear on people in the in-betweens, Blue Ruin is a grim, absorbing journey. (G.V.)

You Oughta Know Don’t kids in these wrenching documentaries deserve some follow-up afterward? By Genevieve Valentine // feedback@philadelphiaweekly.com

M

y favorite dance documentary hasn’t been made yet. Mad Hot Ballroom, released to critical acclaim in 2005, chronicled a semester of Pierre Dulaine’s Dancing Classrooms program, in which New York City elementary schools participate in a ballroom dance curriculum, then compete against each other to send teams to the Colors of the Rainbow competition. The students who emerged as early frontrunners were from P.S. 115, a school that considers many of its students disadvantaged or at risk; the principal mentions that 97 percent of fifth-graders are in families living at the poverty level. Though several students from other highlighted schools are suitably precocious, this is the one at which hot topics include avoiding drug dealers, gangs and the uncertainty of making it through high school. But for Ballroom purposes, their dancing was head and shoulders above the competition so early that the outcome became a foregone conclusion. As they blew away the competition at the Colors of the Rainbow, teachers and parents lent voiceovers about the ways in which the program had changed the personalities and seemingly solved the problems of several students who’d been on the verge of academic and disciplinary problems. Their final slow-motion triumph suggests a lifestyle opened to them through the dance floor. But we don’t know that. Mad Hot Ballroom was made in the moment, for the moment—and though there’s evidence aplenty of the importance of this program in instilling a particular brand of performative gentility, there’s not so much as a coda revisiting what became of the fan favorites, even in the short term. My favorite dance documentary is still to be filmed, and it reveals what’s happened to those kids in the intervening years: the extent to which reluctant parents supported their children’s sudden interests and talents, the degree to which the arts became part of the curriculum after the Colors of the Rainbow, the friendships that might have held fast across a decade, plus the kids for whom it was a

passing moment and those for whom a swing and a tango changed the course of their entire lives. Obviously, it’s often impossible for a documentary to get the closure its subject deserves, as the length of time necessary to understand long-term effects requires overt planning. Usually one’s more likely to see this in a nature documentary that’s filmed over a longer time period to begin with, like the several-years’ window of Chasing Ice, or in biographical documentaries more directly concerned with the effects of time, as in the famous Seven Up series. And of course, it’s entirely possible that a handful of children who didn’t mind the cameras in fifth grade might, for whatever reason, be uninterested now. But the topic feels important enough to warrant a postscript; the students in question were certainly compelling enough to make their champion class worth revisiting. The kids of P.S. 115 were at crucial disadvantages. If this dance program was a weapon against the many unfairnesses they faced, that’s worth a movie all its own. Maybe that’s why a sequel’s never been made—it would take the wind out of some pretty feel-good sails— but even then, the story still feels incomplete not knowing. Perhaps the most compelling subject in the Dulainedrenched Dancing in Jaffa is Noor, a Palestinian girl whose despair is so palpable, it’s nearly audible in the frame. She’s lost her father; she feels disconnected from her mother, and she’s reprimanded for hostility at school. Her family’s economically strained; she weeps watching police action at a tense protest. And after she joins the program, boys refuse to dance with her—a final humiliation. But Noor gets a partner (the logistics of which aren’t shown), blossoms in confidence and makes friends. When Dulaine stops by to say farewell, she demonstrates Arabic dancing, and he praises her talent as the music swells. She hugs him, the very image of promise. The movie offers a brief coda about the success of the program in the years since the documentary was filmed. What’s happened to her since, we never learn. 

Rum, Sodomy and the Crash Now in paperback: James Fearnley relives life with the Pogues. By Neil Ferguson // feedback@philadelphiaweekly.com

T

he Pogues were one of the great bands of that most repugnant of decades: the 1980s. Actually, that does them a considerable disservice—they were one of the great bands of that, this or any decade. They were a Breughel painting made real, the antithesis to the hollow façade of Thatcherite Britain. While their contemporaries compared shoulder-pad sizes, the Pogues combined age-old Irish folk with the amphetamine assault of punk. They sang of broken-down rent boys, broken-hearted drunks, the damned and the downtrodden. They were heartfelt, belligerent and brilliantly poetic, lead by the incomparable Shane MacGowan, a stranger to both dental hygiene and sobriety, a dipsomaniacal degenerate who came on like an unholy mix of Brendan Behan, Flann O’Brien and Mutley from The Wacky Races. In his 2012 book Here Comes Everybody (Chicago Review Press, out in paperback May 6), the Pogues’ frustrated novelist-accordionist James Fearnley wonderfully captured all of the band’s rise and fall with suitably lyrical prose. MacGowan emerges as both a figure of awe and awfulness, a gin-soaked enigma whose dark self-destructive streak leads the band into frequent debates over whether he is, indeed, a genius, or, quite simply, “a fucking idiot.” We spoke with Fearnley from his L.A. home ahead of next week’s conversation with English singer-songwriter/author Wesley Stace at the Free Library.

PW: The book’s about to come out in paperback. It seems to have been really well received so far. JAMES FEARNLEY: Yeah, absolutely. It has done well. I made back my advance, which is great. I went to this literary party in L.A. … and there’s a few other authors there, and when they were told I’d made my advance back, they were all, “Ooooooh!!!” (Laughs) So that was impressive, I think. You feel like a “proper” writer. Yeah, well, that’s true. But as Alan Bennet says, “You’re not really a proper writer unless you’re putting pen to paper.” He’s not a writer when he’s not writing, and I kind of get that. But it’s cool to have written a book ... and people seem to like it. When the band started, you wanted to be a writer, and you were forever telling Shane (MacGowan) and Jem (Finer) that you hoped the band wouldn’t get in the way. (Laughs) It did get in the way! Nearly 25 years later, I finally finished the book. And the irony is that the book I was originally going to do was all about the things that kept me from writing in the first place. So there’s a nice turn around there. I was reading an interview with Shane recently, and he was asked what he thought about it, and he said he didn’t realize it was going to be such a big guilt trip!

He lived it: The Pogues accordionist James Fearnley discusses his book Here Comes Everybody Monday night.

throughout. How much truth is there in his image as the dissolute poet? I think it’s genuine. I might have said this before, but I imagine if your life is like a ship, Shane’s the one who is always at the bow taking every wave first, not leaving his post because he’s incapable of it. And he’s the one who has to report back on just how terrible things are. There’s a lot of artists or writers, I think, or even guys on the street who take it on the chin for guys like me who can’t even go there. He’s staring the void in the face every day. He wrote in what now seems like a relatively short, but incredibly fertile creative streak. Absolutely. Even when I first met him with the Nips, it took me a while to realize just how funny and scatological and in-your-face and impertinent his songs were.

The book captures the insanity and utter tedium of constant touring especially well, comparing it to Das Boot and fights which erupt over whether… Yeah, whether a tomato is a fruit or vegetable! Or, can dogs think? As Andrew (Rankin) points out, “It’s obvious we’ve become incapable of conversation.” I did want to try and get that across. You have this relentless moving; you’re cooped up with each other for hours on end; you run out of things to say. It becomes a kind of Samuel Beckett arena.

Where do you see the Pogues, in the grand scheme of things? Well, I happened to be reading Kirkus or Publisher’s Weekly, and they seemed to think that we basically created our own genre, so that’s very flattering. It’s like you mentioned London in the ‘80s and Yuppies and New Romantics and Thatcher, and we seemed to be the opposite of that. It was just that we were doing our own thing; we were a dark spot amongst it all. All right, so we did borrow from all over the place, but we kind of had a dead center that no one else was visiting. So yeah, creating your own genre does sound nice. Not that I thought that at the time ‘though, I was just trying to learn how to play the fucking accordion! (Laughs).

And yet he still provided you with a great quote for the book’s cover: “It’s just how I imagine I’d remember it.” (Laughs) That was cool. I got the quote from him on the phone. I wasn’t looking for a quote; he just came up with it. But he did say it twice, and he repeated it … I don’t know if he’d consciously thought of it, but as soon as he said it, he must have realized what a great quote it was.

I’ve heard your calls for bisexuals to come out to their friends and family, and I think it’s a great idea. Here’s my conundrum: I’m not sure I technically classify as “bisexual.” I’m a 40-yearold guy who strongly prefers sex with women to men. I’ve had sex with dudes in the past (five or six times) and loved it, though I’ve never had the same emotional attachment and attraction that I’ve had with women. Most people seem to think that bisexuals are equally attracted to both genders—sexually and emotionally—like they could decide by flipping a coin. So am I bisexual or just a juicy boner hobbyist? Just Understanding Identity Causing Erotic Delirium A quick word about my calls for bisexuals to come out to their friends and family ... Bisexuals complain about anti-bi stereotypes and misconceptions—about biphobia and bi-erasure—and quite rightly. It’s awful, it sucks, it’s gotta stop. But just as coming out has always been the most effective way for gays and lesbians to combat homophobia, coming out is the most effective way for bisexuals to combat biphobia. And while 77 percent of gay men and 71 percent of lesbians are out to “most of the important people in their lives,” according to a 2014 Pew Research survey of LGBT Americans, only 28 percent of bisexuals are. Some argue that most bisexuals won’t feel safe enough to come out until straight and gay people get over their biphobia. That’s a bullshit argument. Yes, biphobia makes it more difficult for bisexuals to come out—in the same way that homophobia makes it difficult for gays and lesbians to come out. Someone could argue that the culture is less homophobic today, and they would be right. But that wouldn’t be the case if gay people hadn’t risked coming out when “insanely homophobic” was the default setting for “most of the important people in our lives,” i.e., friends, family, coworkers. OK, JUICED, on to your question: I get letters like yours every day. Guys tell me that they enjoy fucking men and women but they fall in love only with women. They’re not interested in relationships with men—some aren’t even into kissing men (getting fucked by men, yes; swapping spit with men, no)—but they love them juicy boners. These guys invariably tell me that they’re confused about their sexual orientation. They know they’re not straight (not with all the cock they’ve sucked), and they’re pretty sure they can’t be gay (not with all the pussy they’ve eaten), but they’re convinced they can’t be bisexual—aren’t bisexuals open to sex and relationships with both men and women? Isn’t that what everyone says? These guys are bisexual, JUICED, and so are you. The reason so many guys like you are confused about their sexual identity is because the popular definition of bisexuality, “someone who is equally attracted to men and women,” excludes guys like you. But there’s an improved definition making the rounds. It was coined by bisexual activist Robyn Ochs: “I call myself bisexual because I acknowledge that I have in myself the potential to be attracted— romantically and/or sexually—to people of more than one sex and/or gender, not necessarily at the same time, not necessarily in the same way, and not necessarily to the same degree.” You say you’re attracted to men and women, but not in the same way or to the same degree? Congratulations, JUICED, you’re bisexual. But that may not be all you are ...

“Of all of the bi guys I’ve known over the years,” gay journalist Charles Pulliam-Moore wrote in a post at Thought Catalog, “the majority of them have been what I would describe as bi-sexual but hetero-amorous. That is to say that while they’d certainly get into some sweaty bro-on-bro action, guys simply couldn’t provide the kind of emotional satisfaction necessary for a romantic relationship.” So if identifying as bisexual feels dishonest— since many folks will assume it means you’re open to a relationship with a man—go ahead and say you’re “bi but heteroamorous,” and rest assured that you’re not the only bi guy like you out there. I am a 58-year-old gay man. I have never, ever been attracted to women sexually and never had sex with a woman. However, a few months ago I stumbled across some trans man porn (thank you, Buck Angel!) and was incredibly turned on. I would totally go down on or fuck a hot trans man. Am I still gay? Transmen Have Ripped Open Wonted Notions “I get this question all the time,” says Buck Angel, a trans male porn star. “You are still gay, my friend. Trans men like myself who present ‘male’ consider ourselves men. So THROWN is still attracted to a man—just one who happens to have a different set of ‘balls.’ It does not make him any less gay. He’s attracted to the masculinity of the trans man. Some people think that genitals are the deciding factor in gender. This is far from the truth! So don’t stress it, THROWN, and go have some fun!” I’m a 20-year-old guy in a long-distance relationship with my boyfriend of two years. Before I met him, I had a history of anonymous sex with men on Craigslist. I’ve recently been having urges to have anonymous sex again. We tried an open relationship but decided to stop because it left us unhappy. I’m only comfortable with both of us having anonymous hookups, while my boyfriend is only comfortable hooking up with people he knows and is familiar with. Gay Boy Problems Unless you guys have a concrete plan that lands you in the same city soon, your best course of action is to officially break up, do whatever/whoever you wanna do, keep in touch while sparing each other the details of your (now separate and private) sex lives and then pick up where you left off if and when you’re living in the same city. If you can’t bear the thought of breaking up and you can’t resist your urges for immediate, real-time, in-person sexual contact, GBP, the second-best course of action is a don’t ask/don’t tell arrangement. You do whatever/whoever you wanna do (safely!), he does whatever/whoever he wants to do, while—again—sparing each other the details. But the way your boyfriend wants to hook up— with people he knows—discomforts you, most likely because his hookup preferences seem more threatening. A known-and-familiar hookup could easily turn into a relationship, right? True enough, but the gay world is filled with loving couples in stable, long-term relationships who met during anonymous sexual encounters, aka unfamiliar hookups. So demanding that your boyfriend adopt your preferred model of hooking up is no guarantee that he won’t meet and fall in love with someone else—and it’s no guarantee that you won’t meet and fall in love with someone else, either. 
