Home is in the Heart

PARIS MULLEN

Through a revolving door of four metaphors vastly different from one another yet defining the very idea of home for himself, Paris regales the audience in his JAKE Talk about growing up in a black, non-denominational, Christian household in Minneapolis to suddenly arriving at a "sea of whiteness" in Seattle and feeling alone as a gay man in search of himself.  From finding temporary "home" in bath houses to embracing his own sexual identity as a foundation for creating home, Paris invites us to connect to a vulnerability from which self-worth and strength opens itself up at center stage powerfully claiming a place to call one's own.
