Origin Story

Posted on by Amanda Rice

Everything has an origin story, even Today is your chance to hear a little more about mine. The queer women's website Autostraddle published an interview with me covering:

  • Naked yoga
  • My spiritual and religious background
  • How the Supreme Court inspired
  • My secret love of poetry and cookbooks

Plus, there are high-quality archival photos of me, like this one circa 2005. 

So, stop reading here for a moment and check it out! I'd love to hear what you think. 

We're on Autostraddle!

Gratitude. Awe. Excitement. Check! 

After more than a dozen inspiring interviews in Philadelphia, I am feeling great about this project.

So, apparently, are others.  See, here we are on

I've also started hearing from a wider variety of people -- not just Judeo-Christian types, but also Muslims, Buddhists, Pagans, Baha'is, and folks on independent spiritual paths. 

It feels like the rubber is meeting the road, as they say. And it is in a literal way, too - I've traveled 800 miles in the last week.

Thanks, dear reader, for being a part of this project! If you'd like to get even more involved, suggest a stop along the journey, or share the Autostraddle article with your friends.

Gratefully yours,
