Who are the Unchaste Readers?

The Unchaste Readers are women aged 21 to 71 who have read at Unchaste Readers Series between April 2012 and now. They have been all kinds of sexual-preference-spectrum/womyn-gender-spectrum/race/ethnicity/social-economic-politic status-in-thehierarchy-patriarchy/experience/wrting-reading-speaking-singing-playing-music forms. It’s been such a pleasure to meet so many talented, interesting, interested women. I hear rumors and rumblings around me – women wanting/whispering/gossiping/screeching/digressing/disagreeing/name-calling/story-stealing/myth-mistifying/labeling. So. Be wanting. Be whispering. Be gossiping (which is sharing of information). Be screeching. Digress. Disagree. Name-call and label. Make a mythology. Tell stories. Just point it in the direction of loving and caring for all womyn.

Read Ariel Gore’s “How to Become a Famous Writer Before You’re Dead: Your Words in Print and Your Name in Lights” and share the love.

Don’t be mean and afraid.

Be unchaste instead.
