REMINDER — Bette’s Happy Hour Registration
Please register for our weekly Tuesday Happy Hour — a wellness checkin for global newsies — tomorrow, August 22, 5 pm PT
***Registration link for ‘Bette’s Happy Hour’ is located below the paywall — thanks to our generous Founding Members, you can join our global pro-democracy community at half-off for the first year for another day. As seen in the Bette community’s work in Ohio, we are making a tremendous difference. Paid members receive invites to our ‘Speakeasy’ zoom salons, access to all archives, including podcasts, and the American Monsters series. Upgrade or join at the Founding Member rate for special monthly invites***
Thank you to everyone who reached out to offer emotional shelter from the storm. I spent the day catching up on work, investigating 2018 operatives, and watching the documentary ‘I Am Divine’ — which beautifully captured the life of actor and female impersonator Divine — Harris Glenn Milstead. When he reconciled with his mother toward the end of his life, I cried ugly. Divine was a great actor, which somehow got lost in all the camp.
Bette members: please register for Tuesday’s Happy Hour and do note, when news breaks, our Happy Hours often become informative sessions, as occurred last week, when the Fulton County charges came down, and ex-fed Martin Sheil jumped in to enlighten our community. Thanks Marty!
Looking forward to seeing many of you in the squares, and just a reminder, each week we alternate the time so as many people from around the world can checkin. Our Happy Hour time for this week is 5 pm PT, which is 8 pm New York time.
Although the Happy Hour was inspired as a wellness check, where we each offer suggestions of how we stay well during trouble times, it’s okay that we also chat about breakers and fears. That’s part of how of we do this as a community — empathy, listening, sharing.
I’m glad you are here.
Bette Dangerous is a reader-funded magazine. Thank you to all monthly, annual, and founding members. Thank you as well to all those who support my work with your generous coffee tips and who buy my ebooks. Some of you prefer making subsidizing donations via venmo, and it’s always greatly appreciated. If you wish to gift a membership, you can do so by donating to the ko-fi or venmo accounts, and indicate it’s for a gift, or do so here.
Founding Members will be invited to our monthly Founder’s Day events. All paid members receive invites to our ‘Speakeasy’ zoom salons, and weekly wellness checkins, Bette’s Happy Hour. Our next ‘Speakeasy’ on August 27 at 1:30 pm PT will feature Monique Camarra!
Also, a private link to an annual membership discount for older adults, those on fixed incomes or drawing disability, as well as activists and members of the media is available upon request at firstname.lastname@example.org.
