Hi Everyone!

I haven't reached out in a while! I'm one of those people who don't usually "miss" people, but I MISS EVERYONE SO MUCH!

THANK YOU to everyone who donated and joined the Year in Rainbow Patreon, you REALLY HELPED me get through December, fortunately the PUI kicked in January 1st, so I'm back on track!

Anyway, I'm here to share with you what I've been up to! This newsletter is titled "Cha Cha Changes" for a reason!


Since theaters and performance venues are still shut down 10 months into this pandemic, I have not performed on a stage since March 15th 2020! I'm almost 17 years into a performance career and I am not ready to give up yet! SO, I've decided to take my turn at screen acting (hence the headshot!!) I've had some bit roles over the years, but after "Upscale Whore #1" in Boardwalk Empire I became eligible to join SAG/ AFTRA. I kept thinking "ooh, I should utilize that!!" That was 2009 and I've been a bit busy focusing on my live performance career. That's not really possible right now, so I'm using everyone's favorite new word, PIVOT! That's right, I'm taking screen acting classes, auditioning and spreading the word about my new endeavors! So if you need an actor for something and you think I'd be a good fit or have any advice, you know how to find me I would appreciate any advice!


This month ,FEBRUARY, marks the HALF WAY point of YEAR IN RAINBOW! I officially started September 1st 2020!


Below are links to SIX videos I've made all but one are free to view and CHAKRAMENTORY EPISODE 4: CONCEPTUAL CHAKRA YELLOW is only THREE DOLLARS and it not only comes with EARLY ACCESS to my videos, there are HUNDREDS of EXCLUSIVE BLOG POSTS and behind the scenes JOY! Consider supporting me on Patreon and join via www.YearinRainbow.com (my page is labeled "adult" because of some nudity so you can't directly search for me on Patreon)




CHAKRAMENTORY EPISODE 3: Chakra Makeup Meditation

This was inspired by a Mac Pro Sponsorship of some beautiful pigments. There is some nudity here, so NSFW (or if you have a child at home with you!)


Orange You Grateful for The Ocean?

I have been non-stop listening to Perfume Genius's new album " Set My Heart On Fire Immediately" and was so so SO INSPIRED by the ocean and the nature around my mom's house ( was there in ORANGE November to support her with some health stuff.) I decided to make something a bit more heartfelt rather than a Mockumentary for this month!



CHAKRAMENTORY EPISODE 2: Chakracise!

I was doing some stretches one day in October and thought, CHAKRACISE! I gotta make a Mockumentary about a woman who started her own exercise technique, names Shoshanna Chakra. Turns out is a REAL thing, I still haven't brought myself to watch the videos. Let me know if YOU DO! I'm mildly curious!



CHAKRAMENTORY EPISODE 1: RED!

You probably have seen this one already, it's the FIRST OFFICIAL creation of Year in Rainbow! How fitting because it's a Mockumentary about Menstrual Slime Healing, the ROOT CHAKRA!



GREEN HEART CHAKRA YOGA:

In August I did a two week trial/ dress rehearsal for Year in Rainbow and made a "pilot" of sorts. I was at Adrienne Truscott's and Eric Schmalenberger filmed this silly idea for me! Who knew it would turn into a series!!

I'm home isolating being creative as much as possible, making videos for you . . .BUT I'm not going to sugar coat it, like the rest of the world it's been a hard time! I have had a regular jobs since I was 14 years old, I miss working and making collaborative art!


This is where I ask for your RAINBOW HELP! In September I started Year in Rainbow over on Patreon as a way to continue to make art and some income so I can generate enough funds to make said collaborative art! I am asking for THREE DOLLARS!!


That's right, I have two tiers, one is ONLY THREE DOLLARS! If ALL of you donated $3, I might actually be able to pay my rent! The other tier is a lot more money, because I offer A LOT of content, daily videos, handmade face masks, and Personalized Performances /Workshops!


FOR THE REST OF DECEMBER ONLY, I am offering a FREE GIFT ( a REALLY CUTE sticker with the image above by Johnel Clemente!) when you sign up for the rest of the month! My Patreon Patrons get exclusive behind the scenes content an the first SNEAK PEEK of WORLD PREMIER's of my UNCENSORED VIDEOS!


BECAUSE of the nudity in my videos on Patreon you CANNOT directly search for me, so either click the links above or go DIRECTLY TO www.YearInRainbow.com


A BIT of GOOD NEWS (in addition to the Biden/ Harris win, it's official! Even though we all knew it was in November!) We are CLOSER TO SAVING THIS DEMOCRACY, all we need to do is control the SENATE for the DEMOCRATS! I know the system is DEEPLY FLAWED, but this race is VITAL in protecting a WOMAN'S RIGHT TO CHOOSE, TRANSGENDER RIGHTS, OUR PANDEMIC RELIEF and MORE! I RECOMMEND that you PHONE BANK, it REALLY WORKS . . .below is information from https://www.mobilize.us/mobilize/event/362350/


"Flip the West and Commit to Flip Blue are hosting virtual phone banks in support of the two Democratic challengers for U.S. Senate in the Georgia runoff. Democrat Jon Ossoff is facing incumbent Republican David Perdue, and Democrat Rev. Raphael Warnock is facing incumbent Republican Kelly Loeffler. This race will determine whether the Dems or Mitch McConnell control the U.S. Senate for the first 2 years of the Biden/Harris administration."

Orange you glad the boil on the ass of white supremacy has been voted out of office? We DID IT!! I'm grateful for so many volunteers and voters for making this happen!! BELOW is some information on how to help the senate runoff race in Georgia!


It's 10/71 days into the the month of ORANGE/ Year in Rainbow and the ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of the SOLD OUT "One Woman Rainbow" at Joe's Pub, if you missed it or want to remember it, you can check out the "story highlights" on my INSTAGRAM HERE . I cannot believe it's only been a year, this pandemic makes me think any day now will be May 2020! As I say to my therapist every week, this year has been "A LOT!"


I'm currently quarantined in Northern California so that I can help my mom. BUT I'm still making videos over on my YEAR IN RAINBOW Patreon, because of my California trip, I limited the site to only TWO pledge tiers one being only THREE DOLLARS! I'd love your support, since I haven't hit the stage in a while, it's been so helpful and creatively fulfilling to make these short mockumentaries! I have released 3 so far! For only $3 you get WORLD PREMIER ACCESS to see the videos!! There's also FREE CONTENT (like Year in Rainbow blogs from 2007 with funny photos like the one above!) too so head over to www.YEARINRANBOW.COM and sign up or just explore, my Patreon is labeled "ADULT" because there is noodity in some of my videos, like the one BELOW!!! If you are ALREADY a Patreon Patron, you can lower your pledge as well!


!!

I'm incredibly GRATEFUL for the Democratic win for Biden/Harris! We have SO MUCH MORE WORK TO DO and the virus is still raging out there. ONE of the things we can do is write letters for Georgia to alert voters to vote in the Democratic Run Off! Here is the website https://www.gapostcard.org/ !!
