A Season in Hell #43: Radio Valencia: YOUR Community Resource

Monday, June 20, 7pm

I co-created Radio Valencia to support local people doing great things for the community. Tonight on the show I interviewed two people who are indeed doing something great, relevant, and desperately needed in our great city by the bay. Shawn O’Shey and Olivia Heart joined me tonight to talk about the Castro Country Club. The CCC is a clean & sober gathering place for all people and a home for the queer recovery community.

They endeavor to be a space where all can seek wisdom, serenity, courage and joy.

Since April 1983, the Castro Country Club has been a safe haven for LGBT people in recovery from drugs and alcohol. Now, the building that has been home to the Castro Country Club for nearly three decades is being sold.


Writing Man Productions and The Castro Country Club are co-producing the June, 2011 Laybelline show, Queens Are Made: They Are Not Born! At The Dark Room Theater on Thursday, June 23. The show is going to be a benefit for the CCC’s Keep the Steps in the Castro campaign.

This promises to be a drag show of EPIC PROPORTIONS!!!
