To whom it concerns:

In response to Justin Hayford’s review of Tall Tales & Small Miracles (August 8), I first must say that in fact I know more than one straight man who has said that Tekki Lomnicki is a gorgeous woman. Anyway, who the hell is Justin to know this or not?

Secondly, the fact that he cannot identify with the tales told from a personal yet “communal” perspective might just tell us more about him than the audience or performers.

Is this a review or a big kvetch?

Justin Hayford replies:

Lomnicki joked in her show that she enjoyed hanging out in gay bars because gay men were the only ones who would ever tell her she was gorgeous. The opinion is hers, not mine.
