515 Clues: A Kabbalistic Collabaret

A fairy tale for grown-ups, 515 Clues explores moments of trauma and transformation that spiral us into each other’s worlds.  Mythic birds on the edge of the water harken back to ancestral survival stories.  Children in a hospital grow wings to protect each other and spread messages of healing.  Queer youth write letters of advice to a teenage runaway.  Where does your magic come from?

there’s so much going on with my book, as well the performance based on the book that i’ll be producing on June 8 as part of the National Queer Arts Festival.  i received a SFAC Cultural Equity Grant that is helping me complete my manuscript by May 1.  i’m having  a hand-made leather-bound prototype created specially for the performance by Magickally Made.  i’m working with jen cross of Writing Ourselves Whole  in her ongoing Dive Deep program.  I’ll be teaching a series of workshops to youth at Our Space in Hayward, to generate letters of advice to Gladys, a character from my book.  I’ve been taking Yiddish lessons from Anna Elena Torres, and doing some research into the Shriners’ hospital where I spent time as a child.  It all ties together, and I’m working on it for hours every day.  i can’t wait to share it with you all.

October 21 is International Fisting Day!

I was asked to design a logo for Fisting Day 2013, and decided to make some products available – you can order cards, prints, posters, t-shirts, hoodies, and stickers here!  Fisting Day is a sex-positive, feminist, porn-positive, and personal global holiday celebrating and debunking stereotypes of fisting, a sex act that involves the entire hand.  click here for more info.

Invincible Summer: A Queer Romance Come to Life



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 ;)

thank you.  as Lisa says, ‘it takes a village to raise a village.’

here’s a love POW back at ya! XO love nomy………

The Fullness of This Cup: Songwriting Circle for Weirdos, Queerdos and Other Common Folk

Led by Erin Daly and Nomy Lamm
April 25-28, Kamilche, WA (about 20 min outside Olympia)
register by April 1 by emailing:
$300-600 sliding scale, $100 deposit required
This will be the first in a series of songwriting retreats to be held at a secluded cabin in the woods outside Olympia, WA. We will gather with both fledgling and experienced songwriters to form a container for creative energy, and to practice adding to and drawing from that energy. We recognize creativity as an essential force that flows through all people, and offer this as safe space in which you are invited to stretch your self, to try new things, to connect and collaborate and respond, and to nurture a dynamic balance between independence and interdependence in the birthing of our most fantastic creative selves. We will work to remove creative blockages and build skills to listen to the creative forces in us and around us. We will do this with the help of guided skill building activities as well as providing individual time to work with prompts, use personal methods, and connect with nature as a source, container and collaborator in creativity.

Who is this for?
-open to all levels, styles, abilities
-queer safe space
-gender inclusive
-we will do our best to accommodate chemical sensitivities and food allergies
-unfortunately the cabin is not wheelchair accessible. There are about 15 steps.

The retreat begins Thursday evening and ends Sunday evening. We will all be staying at the cabin together so you will need to bring your own bedding, whatever you need to be comfortable either on a hardwood floor or camping outdoors. Food is provided.

$300-600 sliding scale, includes three full days and nights and all meals.
we require a $100 non-refundable deposit to save your spot
there are limited work trade/scholarships available, ask us if you’re interested

deadline for registration: April 1

email us to register:

if you have questions or need flexibility please don’t hesitate to contact us

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.
