    Get a hand-made broadside edition of a Bible verse, chosen by me and queerly translated for you!

    Broadside will be approximately 8" x 10", and printed on fine cardstock, making it perfect for putting in a frame and hanging in your bathroom to stare at as you pee.

    You'll also get a postcard from my residency with a loooooove poem on it, written by me, likely inspired by the Bible.

    1. Everything from the $75 reward (postcard, broadside, frame, recording and "The Bible Is A Queer Text" t-shirt, tote bag).

    2. PLUS if you're in NYC or have plans to visit, I'll take you on a tour of one of my favorite queer spaces! Riis Beach, Lesbian Herstory Archives, Leslie Lohman Art Museum, Bureau of General Services-Queer Division, and who knows where else! Good for one guided tour of a space of your choosing!

    If you're not in NYC and don't wanna be (I get it, it's rough) then I'll make a personalized, researched guidebook of queer or alternative spaces near wherever you are! Famous sites in queer history, places to see the best drag shows, local university archives with queer stuff in their catalogue-- if there's something lovely and strange going on in a 10 mile radius I will find it!
