Author Talk: Alvin Orloff, Beth Lisick and K.M.Soehnlein

Our Summer On the Same Page author Alvin Orloff
will be in conversation with Beth Lisick and K.M. Soehnlein.

Alvin Orloff, Bay Area native and 2020 Lambda Literary Awards finalist for best Gay Memoir, is our On the Same Page selected author for his book Disasterama!: Adventures in the Queer Underground 1977-1997 (Three Rooms Press). Disasterama! is a fun, raunchy, hilarious and painful coming of age memoir. One cannot speak of gay counterculture in the 1980s and not be ingrained in AIDS crisis and the loss of life which ensued. Alvin does this with honest emotion and humor. Opening with teenage Orloff in search of acceptance, love, but mostly sex—he finds Michael Joseph Collins who becomes his infatuation, creative partner, bandmate in The Popstitutes, love and friend.
