by Chris Narloch

The near-capacity crowd was definitely pumped on opening night of “The Rocky Horror Show,” as Sacramento’s Green Valley Theatre Company presented its 10th Anniversary live production of the cross-dressing classic in front of an eager and faithful audience.

The gender bending musical opened on Oct. 19 and will play through Nov. 3 at the 24th Street Theatre, inside the Sierra 2 Center for the Arts. You are advised to get your tickets immediately, before they are gone, for this “sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania” triumph.

Still We Rise

by Tom Moon, MFT, The Examined Life

In the days following the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, I talked with women and gay men who had been re-traumatized by the whole spectacle. I heard stories of rape, beatings, threats, and bullying, almost always at the hands of young men. Some said that they had never told their stories before, and almost all said that they carry the wounds of their experiences to this day. Their suffering, and their courage and resilience in responding to it, was deeply moving.

Last time I wrote about “victors” – those spiritual giants among us who are able, not merely to survive their traumas, but to triumph over them. As an example, I mentioned Viktor Frankl, the Viennese psychiatrist who found that, even in the hell of Auschwitz, “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”
