The S. Kitchen presents...A Very Mary Queer Year


The S. Kitchen is back on Sunday, January 31st at 4pm. This time the theme is A Very Mary Queer Year! That's right. This is the year that I am bringing my art to life. And if you know me, you know that my art is most definitely QUEER. So to kick things into high gear, this S. Kitchen will be a launching of Queerly Complex, a portal to art, events, news, and more all from a queer perspective.

What is meant by queer? Good thing ya asked (or well...are at least reading this). Queer is as queer does. It is a way of life. It is about living outside the box. It is expressing who you are and loving who you will. It is not giving a damn and being open to possibilities. It is honoring and promoting voices and experiences of folks that identify as LGBT and the spaces in between. It is being present amidst the chaos of past and future.

How does this all relate to the theme and food? That part is actually very very simple. This time around, I will be focusing on foods that are traditional new year's foods from a variety of cultures. Think black-eyed peas, noodles, collard greens, dumplings, grapes... Then make it your own! This could be a different way of serving, adding that secret spice that you don't tell anyone, buying it from a store and calling it your own. The possibilities are endless!

To get you started with ideas, here is a great resource:

And in my tradition of New Years, we will be doing a white elephant gift exchange. That's right it is white elephant, so...DON'T SPEND A DIME! Find something tacky, broken, unused in your home, wrap it, and bring it to the shindig. Hilarity will ensue.

Hope to see ya'll there!
