My Queer Valentine.

I went to the Jack Kerouac House 1418 (Clouser Ave, Orlando, Florida) for My Queer Valentine).  Love is love, and no matter if you're single or taken, heartbroken or healed, it's an honor to be able to share stories of love. Just two days after Valentine's Day, four authors shared there own queer love stories.

Readers , included Sarah Viren, Claire Robin Thorne, Amber Norman and Ashley Inguanta (in the sketch). The evening was sponsored by Burrow Press and hosted by the Jack Kerouac House. The literary scene seems so much more vibrant than the visual arts scene in Orlando. There are literally dozens o reading events in town attended by crowds of eager listeners, yet artists seldom gather and share their work. Parker Sketch hosts a monthly Critique session which helps fill that void but otherwise artists only meet at openings.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
