Pingy-Dingy Wednesday – Birthrights: Dancing!

Our human birthrights include singing and writing and dancing and making art and playing, and I have been celebrating those here on Pingy-Dingy Wednesday.

I just love these two men dancing soooooo sexy and sweet at the monthly salsa social hosted by LGBT Dance in downtown Toronto. I’m reminded of the vibe at Boston’s own fantabulous queer dance night, Swingtime, and it is a gift to see them enjoying their bodies so much, their own ability to move and connect and float. Thank you, LGBT Dance and sexy fellas! This is dancing!

I’m a typewriter whompin’, card catalogue lovin’ white girl from back in the day, and I yearn for a time before the covers of trade paperbacks were all squidgy, so you can imagine that I don’t actually understand what a pingback is. I do know that it can in some way be part of spreading the love, and since that’s what I’m all about at The Total Femme… every Wednesday, I pay homage to the laughter and inspiration to be had elsewhere online.

At the Total Femme, my intention is to post three times a week: Meditations for Queer Femmes on Monday, Pingy-Dingy Wednesday on Wednesday and Femme Friday on Friday. Rather than play catch-up in a stressful fashion on those weeks when life prevents posting, I have decided to just move gaily forward: if I miss a Monday, the next post will be on Wednesday, and so on. Thank you, little bottle of antibiotics for inspiring me in this! (“…if it’s almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Don’t take a double dose to make up for a missed one.”)
