Screenagers: The Next Chapter, Presented by Chief Sealth International PTSA @ Chief Sealth Auditorium
Nov 21 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Filmmaker and physician Dr. Delaney Ruston takes the conversation around screens and teens to the next level with Screenagers NEXT CHAPTER: Uncovering Skills for Stress Resilience—a film that examines the science behind teen’s emotional challenges, the interplay of social media, and most importantly, what can be done in our schools and homes to help them build crucial skills to navigate stress, anxiety, and depression in our digital age.

Gaybaret @ Vashon Center for the Arts
Nov 22 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Drawing on the theatrical form of a cabaret, featuring original songs and stories laced with a bit of magic, two islanders, David Mielke and Thomas Hitoshi Pruiksma, have written and will perform the premiere of their innovative show, “Gaybaret,” on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, November 22, 23, and 24 at Vashon Center for the Arts’ Kay Hall.

After sharing their lives for close to a decade, last year Mielke and Pruiksma took the traditional steps to sanctify their partnership through marriage. Their wedding, however, was anything but conventional. As professional performers, storytellers, musicians, and writers, the couple told the story of how they met — honoring friends, teachers, and experiences that led to their meeting and readiness to commit to a life partner — and they did so using a cabaret-style form of story and song. They called it “Gaybaret.”

“‘Gaybaret’ sounds campy and frivolous,” Mielke said, “but at the wedding, it quickly became not just that as the guests’ emotions started being tapped into. The best part was afterwards, when so many people wanted to talk about what came up for them that had nothing to do with gayness or LGBT stuff.”

That’s when the duo realized what they had created might be meaningful to a wider audience. Because the first iteration concluded with their marriage, they had to write a new ending, adding other elements, to fashion a stand-alone performance. While the show is based on their lives, Pruiksma said, it is not just a work of nonfiction; it is also a work of art.

“The artfulness opens it to other people,” he said, “so it is not just a show about LGBTQ experience, rather the art allows the specific to become universal. It is both a work of art and how art changes us and helps us grow into who we are, along with people and mentors who help us.”

Though the show is like a cabaret, it also includes ritual. With Pruiksma on piano, each performer alternately tells their own story and sings songs — about letting go of old shame and acknowledging the mystery of life. As with many rituals honoring what is known but unseen, the show bows to the joyful play of what seems to be serendipity.

“There’s a thread running through the show of openness to wonder, to the poetry of lived life,” Pruiksma said. “Our experiences may appear to be chaotic and random, but often there is some more mysterious pattern we can see or help to create that leads to unexpected gifts.”

To metaphorically, visually, express the notion of these gifts, the performers construct a bridge. When the cabaret opens, random pieces of driftwood lie scattered about stage, each symbolizing a different life experience. As the show progresses, the duo fit the pieces together, eventually forming a bridge.

“It’s a bridge that connects us,” Mielke said. “The idea is that we could see our negative experiences as stumbling blocks to trip over, or we can find a way to reimagine them, turning them into something positive to serve as steps toward where we’d like to go. If nothing else, it gives us compassion.”

That transformation, Pruiksma said, has a healing power. It leads to changes in perception of ourselves and our world, which leads to taking new actions “and living more fully in line with our deepest hopes and highest intentions.”

A deep hope and intention of the couple is to keep offering the show to others, to take it on the road.

“It is a celebration of the gifts we’ve been given by cherished friends and works of art, so it is the passing along of the gift. The gift is given by passing it along,” Pruiksma said.

“The energy of this piece is different, like it has a life of its own,” Mielke added. “Again, it is the mystery of it. I try not to analyze but just say ‘yes.’ Where there is the presence of grace or the muses, it is so juicy. You are in the flow.”

That flow also brings unexpected things, Pruiksma said, like the opportunity to hold a preview panel discussion. Pruiksma applied for and was awarded a 4Culture grant, which together with VCA and the Vashon Heritage Museum exhibit, “In and Out: Being LGBTQ on Vashon Island,” will sponsor “Prelude to a Gaybaret: A Historical Panel on the Art of Transformation.”

Five panelists panelists — Jami Sieber, Latosha Correll, Leo MacLeod, Matt Baume, and Timothy White Eagle — will discuss the art of transformation: how art helps us know ourselves more fully; how rituals like a marriage or theater offer possibilities of healing; and how we make sense of historical change in our own lives, acknowledging both the curses and blessings of the past.

The production is also hosting a drawing for an all-inclusive “Night Out on Vashon,” with a pair of tickets, dinner at May Kitchen + Bar, and luxurious accommodations at the Lodges on Vashon. Learn more and enter by November 15, 2019, at driftwoodbridge.com.

“Gaybaret: An Offering of Story and Song” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22 and Saturday, Nov. 23, and at 2:00 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 24, at Kay Hall. Tickets are $10-$23.

“Prelude to a Gaybaret” will be held at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, at Kay Hall. Tickets are free for youth age 18 and under, with a suggested donation of $10 for adults. All proceeds benefit the Vashon Heritage Museum

“Unmuted Stories.” @ Online (see listing)
Nov 18 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Join us on Wednesday Nov. 18th for a free reading of selections from the engaging new anthology Unmuted: Stories of Courage and Resilience from the GenPRIDE Community. Pre-Registration is required. Click here to register for free.

A reading & live Q&A with local authors of Unmuted: Stories of Courage and Resilience from the GenPRIDE Community, an engaging new anthology of memoirs by fourteen LGBTQI elders and allies.

The authors will read story excerpts, as well discuss the healing and sense of community that came from writing and sharing important life stories in what began as a simple writing workshop at GenPRIDE. During this event, you’ll have a unique opportunity to ask live questions of the authors about their stories and writing process.

In this gripping anthology, fourteen LGBTQIA midlife and older adults share the struggles and triumphs that shaped their lives. Some stories delve into issues that have marked their generation: AIDS, gender identity, sexuality, persecution, and claiming one’s self. Others grapple with health, family, loss, addiction, and love. Unmuted is about heartbreak and courage, strength, and resilience. It is a riveting testimony to the power of personal storytelling.

Join us for a live and lively discussion of LGBTQIA lives and storytelling!

This free reading and Q&A is presented in partnership with GenPRIDE Seattle, Western Washington’s resource for LGBTQIA+ aging. Click here to learn more.

J Mase Author Reading: Black Trans Prayer Book @ Online (see listing)
Dec 11 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Don’t miss an incredible evening with J Mase III and co-editors of the Black Trans Prayer Book. Join the contributors of the Black Trans Prayer Book for an evening of spirited connections.

We will add the streaming link here and on our Facebook event page one week before the event

The Black Trans Prayer Book: is a beyond-faith-and-interfaith, multi-dimensional, artistic and theological work that collects the stories, poems, prayers, meditation, spells, and incantations of Black Trans & Non-Binary people. Often pushed out of Faith spaces and yet still deeply connected to a historical legacy of spiritual essentiality, Black Trans People face unprecedented amounts of spiritual, physical, and psychological violence. The Black Trans Prayer Book is a tool of healing, and affirmation centered on uplifting Black Trans & Non-Binary people and celebrating our place within faith.

What does it mean to have a faith practice that simultaneously challenges white supremacy and transphobia? Where is there a theological framework that centers the most marginalized and creates pathways towards an active spirituality moving alongside social justice? How might a spiritual practice not in tune with these questions cause harm? The #BlackTransPrayerBook, is holding these very questions.

Grab the book on the website!

We can provide accommodations for people with disabilities at Library events. Please contact leap@spl.org at least seven days before the event to request accommodations.

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
May 26 all-day

**7/22 UPDATE: No naturalists at South Alki (Constellation Park) this Friday, Saturday, Sunday because of the nearby sewage leak*

(Note: Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jun 12 all-day

**7/22 UPDATE: No naturalists at South Alki (Constellation Park) this Friday, Saturday, Sunday because of the nearby sewage leak*

(Note: Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”
