More about Sasha Colby: Waimanalo, Hawaii native Sasha Colby has called home to many places, Chicago, Orlando, and now Los Angeles, but nothing compares to Hawaii. As a teen she trained with renowned dance company 24-VII Danceforce Studios, which fostered her love of performing. After high school, she transitioned not only from dancer to working drag queen and professional dancer but also from a little boy to the woman you see today. As an actress (Hawai’i 5-0 as well as a cameo in the upcoming feature film “Breaking Fast”), Dancer (Janet Jackson, Leann Rimes, Nightgowns with Sasha Velour), music video Choreographer for many of RuPaul s Drag Race Stars (Latrice Royale, Tatianna, Aja, Monique Heart), she also modeled for Michael Ngo, Marco Marco in runway and print work. Her most notable achievement was when she won the highly sought-after pageant title Miss Continental in 2012. The prestigious title gave her a platform in which she was able to advocate for LGBTQI+ issues, especially Trans related issues. Sasha counts activism and speaking out on these issues her true life’s work, to use her platform to influence others for the better.

Strut Book Club reads “Here for It” by R. Eric Thomas

Greetings Queer Book Lovers!

For the month of June, we are reading “Here for It” by R. Eric Thomas

The Strut Book Club will be meeting
Monday, June 28th at 7 PM, (pdt) virtually!
(but also we might meet in person at Strut but if we do we will have a hybrid event so folks can still join us virtually.)
Please make sure to read the entire book beforehand and come ready to discuss your thoughts.
If you’d like to join us please join the book club by registering on our Facebook Group if you are not on Facebook email our facilitator and he will send you the zoom link (not a minute before the book club starts cause he won’t see it)
This queer book club has been around since 2003 and currently, we are holding meetings virtually due to the pandemic.
The link to the virtual book club meeting will be posted here on the day of the event.
If you have any questions about Strut’s events and or this Queer/Gay Book Club please feel free to contact our community events manager Baruch Porras Hernandez at baruch@sfaf.org
More about the book:
R. Eric Thomas didn’t know he was different until the world told him so. Everywhere he went—whether it was his rich, mostly white, suburban high school, his conservative black church, or his Ivy League college in a big city—he found himself on the outside looking in.
In essays by turns hysterical and heartfelt, Thomas reexamines what it means to be an “other” through the lens of his own life experience. He explores the two worlds of his childhood: the barren urban landscape where his parents’ house was an anomalous bright spot, and the Eden-like school they sent him to in white suburbia. He writes about struggling to reconcile his Christian identity with his sexuality, the exhaustion of code-switching in college, accidentally getting famous on the internet (for the wrong reason), and the surreal experience of covering the 2016 election for Elle online, and the seismic changes that came thereafter. Ultimately, Thomas seeks the answer to these ever more relevant questions: Is the future worth it? Why do we bother when everything seems to be getting worse? As the world continues to shift in unpredictable ways, Thomas finds the answers to these questions by reenvisioning what “normal” means and in the powerful alchemy that occurs when you at last place yourself at the center of your own story.
Here for It will resonate deeply and joyfully with everyone who has ever felt pushed to the margins, struggled with self-acceptance, or wished to shine more brightly in a dark world. Stay here for it—the future may surprise you.
