October has been an extremely busy month for Safe Word — seven festivals in seven days, plus two more the week before, for a total of nine! We’ve been ringing doorbells in Albuquerque, Louisville, Atlanta, Seattle, and Tampa to name a few, plus toilet papering trees in Hamburg, Germany, our first overseas date. October is a heavy LGBT festival month, but with all the homo romantic comedies on tap you’d never guess the kinship with ghosts and goblins. But it’s there! We should embrace our inner demons — a real long hot naked hug, because it’s that time of year, and they need love, too. Otherwise you could … maybe… dress up as a pirate?
