Come hear local true stories about what it means to be “Different.”
Alternative, exotic, incompatible, outcast, unconventional.
AEIOU… and sometimes Y?
Distinct, fresh and separate.
Different is frequently shunned or seen as undesirable but often breaks ground and sets new trends and copycats.
This show will be a special fundraising event for Southern Arizona Senior Pride.
Celebrating, Supporting and Uniting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Seniors in Southern Arizona

Terry Filipowicz: At home in newsrooms, college classrooms, and book publishing, I’m connecting cool people with other cool people and writing multi-platform content. I’m building a media EMPIRE because I want to use my powers for good. I scuba dive, Irish dance, and do genealogy. I wish I could sing well.

An avid observer of people, Ethel Lee-Miller often encourages folks to find just one commonality to create a relationship. And yet one of her most special relationships has been one where it was really hard, but necessary, to be different. She currently writes and lives with her husband in Tucson, always finding seeds for stories in observing people around her. Some might say she’s nosy, she labels it discerning. Whether writing or speaking, Ethel Lee-Miller has been having a love affair… with words, for more than a decade, resulting in two published books, inclusion in several anthologies, writing workshop seminars, online journals and 100s of blog essays, Facebook posts, and a growing number of tweets. She shares many of these stories in her books, Thinking of Miller Place and Seedlings: Stories of Relationships. https://etheleemiller.com

He is a juggler, unicyclist, and lover of all things Spider-Man (except that one scene in “Spider-Man 3”). He funds his geeky obsessions by working at the History of Pharmacy Museum, where he collects expired drugs and listens to 1980’s hip-hop.
