Our (award winning) documentary is playing in the Regent movie theater in Arlington, Mass tomorrow, Tuesday night. It will be followed by a Q and A with the wonderful Abe Rybec of the Theater Offensive, who is from West Virginia and knows a lot about MTR and ecosex. It promises to be a lovely and very satisfying evening. We have been so busy with a performance yesterday that we haven't had time to really spread the word. If you know anyone in the Boston area or in Arlington area, please let them know about this special screening and I will give you a really big hard hug when I see you next and my deep gratitude. A good turn out for our first showing like this would make us very happy. We of course we want to get the word out about the painful realities of coal mining in as fun and sexy a way as possible! Thanks for any sharing!

Just love nature. Which could be seen as queer. We're adding the E! x

Our wonderful, generous, fabulous sponsors for our next movie and Pride Parade related projects are all up on our webpage now. We love you sponsors!!! Dear FB friends, feel free to "like" one or more of these great companies' FB pages if you want to reward them for helping create alternative economies where we all help each other do nice things. It takes an eco-village to build a world that loves and appreciates nature more. Sure, Beth and I could probably produce these things ourselves with our little budget, but not as abundantly and lavishly! We like to pamper our collaborators. YOU. Which brings me to our call for collaborators. On June 7 march in our 'celebrating water' contingent with us in Santa Cruz pride, and June 28 march with us in San Francisco pride. Details at www.theEcosexuals.org/parades-2/ Express yourself! Celebrate nature! Call attention to the eco-crises we are facing. Lets be the solution! Ra ra ra! I"m going to the BEACH today with my hubbie Joseph Kramer. fefore more tar hits the sand.

Greetings from the redwood forest. We are writing to, 1.) say ‘hello’, 2.) inform you of our new projects, 3.) and extend an invitation to join us.
WATER MAKES US WET! We are launching several projects about the pleasures, politics, and importance of WATER! Perhaps you are up for doing something fun? Perhaps you, like us, love and take pleasure with water, and are concerned with the drought and the way water is being exploited and polluted? Join us in expressing your thoughts and feelings about water.
NEW FILM! After the success of our first documentary film, we are, GULP, starting another film! Goodbye Gauley Mountain—An Ecosexual Love Story (2013) played some great festivals, won some awards, and was picked up by Kino Lorber, a great distributor. Best part was that the film raised awareness about the destruction of mountain top removal coal mining in West Virginia and introduced all kinds of audiences to ecosexuality and the idea of Earth as lover. We want to extend this idea into a new film about water. This is where YOU come in! We’d like to invite you, and your friends, to create some performance pieces with us, and be in our new film.
PARADE PERFORMANCES! We’re doing two Pride parade contingents in June, officially adding the E (for Ecosexual) to GLBTQI, in Santa Cruz and San Francisco. These events will kick off with ribbon cutting ceremonies, water toasts, and some special short performances by special guests. Then we make our way along the parade routes. We’ll be dressed in black with blue accents as fierce, punk-rock-ish, sexy water warriors. La Pocha Nostra’s co-director Saul Garcia Lopez will direct us. Guillermo Gomez Pena and his beloved Balitronica are the godparents of this SF piece. Artist Sandy Stone is our Santa Cruz project angel.
CALL FOR COLLABORATORS! We seek performers, flag bearers, safety monitors, marchers, makers, make-up artists, hair artists, production assistants and more. We welcome humans of all body types, ages, genders, sexual preferences, colors, nationalities, mobilities and eco-proclivities. Find all the juicy details here:

A Ph.D. & A NEW BOOK! Beth is scheduled to defend her Ph.D. dissertation in October. Then at the end of this year, we have a book about our work due. Its called Assuming the Ecosexual Position, and it will be published by the great University of Minnesota Press. We expect photos of the above projects (perhaps with you in them) to be in the book.
We are busy bees here at Pollination Productions. Our greatest joy would be to have some quality time with YOU, soaking in the hot tub, hanging out at the beach… going swimming… Water makes us wet!
