How well do you know your #LGBTHistory? A full-length documentary about loud & legendary Texas LGBT rights activist Ray Hill is in the works that will go a long way in educating the masses. The #TroubleWithRay shares the stories of some of the greatest civil rights legends in my home-state of Texas, and this incredibly important film could really use your support.
"The Trouble With Ray" documents the history of LGBT heroes in Texas, of all places, and provides a lively overview of a life lived courageously in a world where fear and shame rule. Thanks to a small group of activists – with Ray Hill’s shocking mouth at the megaphone – a thriving LGBT community was born in the heart of ultra-conservative Texas and proudly marched their concerns to the national stage. 

The #TroubleWithRay started out as a 6-minute video commissioned by Comcast for their online channel, Houston's Voice. From there, it was developed into a 24-minute short that premiered at at the Directors Guild of America Theater in Los Angeles as part of the 2014 Houston Film Commission’s Texas Filmmaker's Showcase and has since then screened at a number of other high profile film festivals.

This past March #TroubleWithRay screened at the American Documentary Film Festival and was successfully pitched feature-length project for consideration for the AmDocs Film Fund - now an official supporter of the project who will screen the final version upon completion.

If you have the means, please consider helping out. There are some amazing perks for donating to the #TROUBLEWITHRAY Kickstarter, too: everything from shoutouts on FB & Twitter, or a digital download of the completed film straight on up to a Co-Producer title in the film's credits, an invitation to the film premiere, and a very special lunch or dinner with the film's creative team and the man himself, Ray Hill. So, let's spread the word so this important part of our history can be documented and shared with the world, and generations to come.

I was in Berlin recently and got to chatting with a new friend who turned me on to this awesome music festival (YO! SISSY) that's running a Kickstarter right now to raise funds for its second edition next summer.

YO! SISSY is Germany's first international queer music festival whose first edition took place this past summer. Spread out over 3 days and 3 venues, YO! SISSY featured took place this past summer over the course of 3 days, 3 different venues, and featured over 50 acts from 15 different countries. Headliners included Peaches, Crystal Waters, JD Samson, CHRISTEENE, The Hidden Cameras, Cakes da Killa, Hi-Fashion, Hard Ton, and many more.

YO! SISSY 2016 will take place July 29 - 31. The festival's goal is to showcase upcoming local talent with established international acts. YO! SISSY focuses on promoting diversity within its performers, specifically female and trans* identified artists.

Donations will directly support queer artists from all over the world, to put together and pay a small team of staff in order to manage the basic operations of the festival, and ideally to incorporate more acts and support more artists and lower ticket prices!

There are some really cool perks for YO! SISSY's Kickstarter, so if you want to get involved and have some spare change just lying around, you should donate it to this awesome campaign! Get all the details HERE.

Anal Magazine is the only gay magazine in Mexico about art and culture, and I've been lucky enough to be invited to their huge Halloween bash!

For those you who aren't familiar with Anal Magazine, it's run by a team of artists, designers and writers who use  visual arts, film, literature, pornography, fashion, design, etc. to show the work of creative people from Mexico and the world, and to create discussions around the concept of manhood.

A Hell of A Party! The Last Night is Anal Magazine's annual Halloween party and this year has a really cool lineup:

Lao & Mexican Jihad (NAAFI)
Portugal (Flat Heels Crew)
Velvet Boy
Special Guest: ME
Performance by: Patricia Kattkins

It's going to be an amazing party at the Auditorio Blackberry (Puerta Condesa Las Américas), so if you're in Mexico, or feel like taking a Halloween road trip, then mark Oct. 31 on your calendar and get your tickets – you can get them now at a special advance price of $150 (which works out to around $10 USD) or at the door for $280 (around $17 USD)

See you there!

#COLBYDOESAMERICA is definitely the longest, craziest roadtrip I've ever taken. And what's a roadtrip without music, right?

Several months back, I loaded up my iPod with songs that have come to act as a soundtrack to my journey across America. With help from a few trusty worker bees, I’ve combined my favorite tracks with photos from the road to create a multi-media mixtape.
Come share the sights and sounds of my trip across America!

First of all, you guys are AWESOME for sharing so many of your stories. I wish I had prizes for all of you! Alas, there can be only one winner, and his name is:

Francisco Moreno Guerra

Congratulations Francisco! Keep an eye on your mailbox, because you're the proud new owner of this beautiful, limited edition Felix D'eon print (be sure to hang it some place nice!)

Thanks, again, to Felix for generously donating his fantastic art. And thanks to everyone who participated.
