Some sad scribblings from a very sad and confusing time in my life, thankfully long since passed. This is what I used to think of Bisexuality. I don't blame this kid- when you never see something represented, other than as a punchline, you don't think of it as valid. When your straight friends roll their eyes at it and your gay friends roll their eyes it, you avert your eyes, at least. Luckily I fell in love with someone who didn't fit the narrative I had built for myself so undeniably that I had to confront it, make peace with it, and ultimately own it. For so long it seemed like something insurmountably complicated when in reality, it is so simple. It's freedom. In love, in sex, in gender- it's freedom from the binary. It's the greatest gift the universe has given me and it's one I am proud to share. I know a lot of people struggle with this the way I did and I can't give much advice- we all have our own situation. What I can offer is my example. I'm here, I'm out, and I fucking love myself for it. People doubt my identity every day, to my face and behind my back, but I don't mind. It's not theirs, it's mine, and no one can take it from me. If it's yours too, know that. Happy #BiWeek, brave souls. 🔮🦋🌸
That's a WRAP! Feeling full and exhausted in a good way and proud to finish up season one of Gone. I realized it is my first wrap day, as I generally get killed off of or mysteriously disappear from TV shows, and I gotta say, this is the way to do it. So much love and satisfaction in the air here. Now to share it with the world!
We did that, gang. #burnallnightart
It's just me and my friends. Opening Night of #BurnAllNightART! 💡 📸: @misterbrett
Is this what the regular boys feel like?
🌚Solar Eclipses are super charged new moons, bringing swift and profound change- think endings and beginnings of eras. Select a card which speaks to you (without peeking down below!) and at the time of the eclipse (2:30 EST, 11:30 PST), swipe to see what you drew and read below for a message. . . . . 🌛Left: V of Wands Reversed- in an eclipse, the moon, ruler of what is hidden, occults the sun, ruler of what is apparent. Thus, things which have been bubbling under the surface tend to step out into the light for better or worse. 5 Wands Reversed signals a conflict you have been avoiding or repressing. Now is the time to face it head on (it may come out whether you like it or not). That can be scary, but if eclipses signal the start of new eras, then this is your way forward. 🌝Center: The World- This is the last card of the tarot, representing completion, satisfaction, and all being right in the universe. Something is coming to a close for you. Take this moment to look back without judgement and celebrate whatever achievements you made in this cycle, no matter how modest. If you didn't get everything you wanted, you learned a hell of a lot, and you can take that forward. Be good to yourself today. Be as still as you can. And tomorrow, decide what you want next. Because a new cycle begins now. 🌜Right: Page of Pentacles- This is a hugely auspicious card for an eclipse, as pages are new opportunities and pentacles are the earthly suit of money, wealth, and material matters. Thus, with the energy of the eclipse at your back, you have everything you need for that new opportunity for abundance you have been hoping for. What ever it is, it will be in its nascent stages, so be very alert and open minded. It may take you down a totally new path.
"M" - congrats to this beautiful tribe on a crazy, productive, inspiring week and their first 4 audiences. 💡 #burnallnightart
I just woke up from the most beautiful dream except it's real and it's #burnallnightart premiering for a real, paying audience. I'm the luckiest boy.
1 year down, Arden. It's pretty on brand that we're apart today because we are both making art- your art is the one thing you love more than me (well, maybe art and Papa Johns) and that is my absolute favorite thing about you. The way you see the world has changed the way I see the world. Your bravery to create, to take charge, to attempt the impossible is my bravery. I wouldn't be opening this show tonight if not for your example. That's so much better than a corny gift and a rich dinner. It's not something every couple would understand, but it's something we have always understood from day one, and even when things are hardest, that's how I know this is it. Happy Anniversary xo

When I started writing Burn All Night, I went out and bought the pencils Sondheim uses- @blackwing - hoping some genius might rub off on me. Now the show is premiering at @americanrep and I'm featured on Blackwing's Makers page, talking about process and tools. Life is weird!
