This is my third post based on a Spoken Word performance with Harold Norse in 1986.
Click here for one and here for two.
This time Harold Norse Reads ‘I Am Not a Man’ and I read part of a monologue by ‘Bobby’ called The Scorpio Club.
Both pieces take up questions of masculinity.
‘I am not a man’ is 1970s gay liberation merged with the peace movement
The Scorpio Club is about a frustrated group of boys who want to be men in a culture that says they’re sick and deserve to die.
They turn their anger on Charleston’s formidable drag queens.
