"When We Rise"

is the gay "Roots." it airs on ABC next month. it's timely that it comes into view so early in the dread regime of the next president as he & the confederacy of dunces he's appointd to his cabinet attempt to strip all the rights my community has faught so long for.

a delicious footnote is that Rosie O'Donnell appears in the mini-series as the legendary Del Martin. this woman who was so vilified by the candidate in the most despicable campaign in recent memory plays against type.

I'm particularly proud that the opening segment of the series had its world premiere in my new hometown last nite. hundreds of Palm Springs residents took to the streets to protest the election. & if the president elect & his followers think we'll be silent let them be warnd. we will rise again.
