RIP Cheryl Marie Wade

I have just this minute learned of the death of Cheryl Marie Wade on August 21st. I will be writing more later, but meanwhile wanted to get this up:


Sunday, October 13, 2-5 at Alumni House, UC Berkeley.

Please join us in a tribute to the life and work of Cheryl Marie Wade,
who passed away on August 21, 2013. Wade was internationally renowned
as a playwright, poet, performer, filmmaker and disability activist,
the “queen mother of gnarly.” She was cherished among us as a dear
friend and beloved partner.

Refreshments and drinks will be served.
