Performer

At 65, Aralyn Hughes became a full-time performance artist under her company - Aralyn's Home Economics - Producing 10 autobiographical one-woman shows in three years. She continues to cover a variety of topics from feminism to sexuality, growing up in the 60's to death, and baby boomers today. Described as funny, heartfelt, and intimate, her shows are always invigorating.

Commanding her message with the book "Kid Me Not..." and her documentary "Love in the Sixties," there's more to Aralyn than her shows.

Author

An anthology by child-free women from the 60s...

...now in their sixties, KID ME NOT was rated the #1 Kindle Book in Feminist publications on Amazon.

With a forward by Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love, Aralyn's anthology features stories from women considered the first generation women to truly have a choice, who made the decision to not have children following the advent of the birth control pill.

Ranging from personal encounters to recalling decisions made while being a director of an abortion clinic in Texas, the stories are as juicy as they are an important piece of history.

Documentary


Love in the Sixties, with musical scoring from Shakey Graves, is a documentary about how one small-town woman from Oklahoma, who came of age in the 1960s and now is in her sixties, is taking on some serious baby boomer questions about love, sex, and death with an adventurous and outrageous "artistic" curiosity to find herself - even at the cost of "ruining her reputation."

Officially featured in three U.S. Film Festivals (Portland, Santa Cruz, and Ellensburg), Aralyn’s Home Economics went on to premiere the documentary to a sold-out audience at Austin’s Paramount Stateside Theatre in late 2015. Continued successful screenings has led to a birthing of more intimate private viewings accompanied by personal Q & A’s with the starlet herself.
