—— PRESS RELEASE ——
A.S.S. Salutes Gay Pride Month with Release of First Book
April 16, 2019
AnySummerSunday.com LLC today announced the release date, June 21, 2019 – the first day of summer in the
50 year celebration of Stonewall, of it’s inaugural, namesake book – Any Summer Sunday at Nacho Mama’s Patio Cafe :Drag, Songs, Friends, Laughs, Lies, Danger & Rescue.
The book is a joyous dance of song, drag queens, laughs, lies, a touch of tawdry and long time friends, whirls you – funny and thoughtful, leaving some bruises & scratches, but always a with smile and a kiss. Join in as they gripe, grope and grapple for love, life & and satisfaction.
Steve Schatz, former college prof turned author said, “When I did my grad work, I moved from San Francisco to small town Indiana. It was…shall we say, different. This is a state that elected a homophobic governor. I’m not sure what happened to him – he’s probably living with his man-crush in obscurity.”
Any Summer Sunday grew out of those years. It is set in 2005. While Stonewall brought pride and visibility to gays, in small town American, the gay community was (and in many places, still is) quiet outside of the bar. Inside, however, is where we can let our hair down and put our pumps on. Schatz says, “The bar has long been a social center of gay culture. Remember, Stonewall was a gay bar, tits full of drag queens. Any Summer Sunday celebrates that milieu.”
Every Sunday evening, TiaRa del Fuego’s Parade of Gowns drag shows present the best entertainment in our little, Indiana college town in Hoosier Daddy, the only gay bar around.
Between sets, we gathered for drinks and nachos at Nacho Mama’s Patio Cafe. Trading lies, jokes, adventures, celebrations and sorrows, our merry band relished the life of the small town gay, safe in the bosom of long-time friends.
Then TiaRa announced she had found “true” love – yet again and was leaving to be with her latest amour. Disaster loomed.
How far should you go to save a friend from her own desires? Over the course of the evening, the Entrepreneur, the Lush, the Boys, the Spy, the Southern Belle, the Fixer and the Storyteller struggle to help TiaRa find joy because that is what friends do for friends.
Schatz said, “ASS is a celebration of music, life and friends. It’s that laugh when you realize what a weird world we inhabit. Think Boys in the Band meets La Cage. It’s a book for anyone who has ever felt different.”
