dear WHOLE WIDE WORLD…
i have met my match. her name is Lisa Ganser and she is perfect for me, we are in L O V E. only problem is she lives in minneapolis and i live in san francisco. and we are gonna change that. so we have launched this campaign to raise money so she can move here and we can be together.
from our pitch: “We are Lisa Ganser (Minneapolis, MN) and Nomy Lamm (San Francisco, CA), and we have fallen bravely, sweetly, expansively into a love that has quickly turned both of our lives around and saturated us with possibility. Much of it played out publicly on Facebook (there are good things that happen with social media). If you believe for even half a second that those sappy songs, those sonnets, those movies, those cheesy musicals have any truth in them… Well enable us. Enable what we are in, this romantic comedy that is our life. Love is not just for the most privileged amongst us! You don’t have to be rich and straight and skinny and able bodied to be the main character. You don’t have to wait until you are able to get married. You can be a radical queer fat activist crazy person on disability, someone who would always rather give to your community than ask for help, and you can say: We want to be together, and we need support to make this happen. Please open up your heart, your pocket, your coin purse, your fanny pack for us, to help make this dream a reality.”
perks include making a wish for you, liking all your posts on facebook, telling our friends we think you’re cute, setting you up on a date, and calling out YOUR name during sex

Nomy Lamm and Erin Daly have been collaborating on music and dreams for nearly a decade. They’ve toured the country together several times, spreading their vision around the US in the three-piece hybrid-genre band Tricrotic, and on the New Road Home tour with DavEnd. They’ve played at festivals including Homo-a-go-go, Ladyfest, Idapalooza, Camp Trans and Outfest. When not immersed in a ((double hug)), Erin roams the wilds of Washington making medicine with the plants she encounters, and Nomy lives in San Francisco writing stories and teaching people to access their voices.
Set in the magical forest of one queer artist’s imagination, Fabulous Artistic Guys Get Overtly Traumatized Sometimes: The Musical!, follows our heroine, DavEnd, as she attempts to write a musical despite her own fears of scarcity and the taunting words of Officer Homo (Stanley Frank). With the help of her Fairy Drag Mother (World Famous *BOB*), she is introduced to a cast of well dressed homosexual clichés– Fruitcake (Travis Santell Rowland), Flamer (Rotimi Agbabiaka), Pansy (Nomy Lamm), and Pussy (Ben McCoy) – and suddenly the musical takes on a life of its own as they take the pages of her discarded script and decide to put on their own show. With singing pink cakes, dancing mirrors, couture genitalia and one stately flower looking for love on the internet, all brought to life through DavEnd’s signature sound and storytelling, Fabulous Artistic Guys Get Overtly Traumatized Sometimes: The Musical!, lives up to it’s title, and more!

“What makes Sins Invalid so powerful is that it thoroughly succeeds artistically and erotically, separate from the impact of its political message. Sins Invalid challenges its audience to think about sexuality, beauty, and disability in new and expanded ways. But Sins Invalid is also, quite simply, a hot, arousing, sexually charged evening of thought-provoking, imaginative sexual entertainment that only happens to be entirely by and about people with disabilities.”
- David Steinberg, SFGate
“Sins Invalid’s work is a vibrant necessity in this age of bland complacency. The art that is presented brings the intersectionality of race, gender, class, and ability and throws it in your face, forcing the viewer to come to terms with how these realities are not so different and yet so different for those with disabilities. And this is beautifully done with the erotic and the body.”
