In 1996, I founded and ran “OutSpoken Productions.” We were a small group of students who toured throughout the United States, giving presentations on sexuality-related topics.
In addition to performing these shows, I gave speeches and presentations at several colleges and universities around the United States by invitation. These lectures addressed sexuality-related subjects such as rape, AIDS, and sexual harassment. Other subjects included violence against women such as rape and relationship abuse, as well as feminist issues. Lecture sites included (but were not limited to): Bard College, Cottey College, Duke University, Ferrum College, George Mason University, Hollins University, James Madison University, Longwood College, Maryland Institute College of Art, Randolph-Macon College, St. Cloud State University, State University of New York at Buffalo, University of California at Davis, University of California at Santa Barbara, University of Richmond, University of Virginia, University of Wisconsin, Ursinus College, and Virginia Commonwealth University.
In 2001, I donated my entire suite of programs to NSCASV (National Student Coalition Against Sexual Violence). I had reached a point in my life where I was burned out from traveling, couldn’t pass for an 18 year-old student any longer, and needed to pay off student loans. It was with regret that I walked away from this exciting and rewarding chapter in my life.
I’ve recently found out that NSCASV folded about one year after I made this donation. No one knew how to reach me or access the programs we ran.
I’m pleased to announce that all of our programs are once again for sale. I am offering the most popular three programs we ran at time of transfer of ownership (click on link below for information about ordering or having the show on your campus):
• “Drawing the Shades”
