Spill! brings together storytellers, comedians, sex educators and others to share true tales from their own experiences of queer sex, desire and romance. With stories as diverse as the people telling them, Spill! opens doors to bedrooms, back seats and dungeons to tell what your mama left out about the birds, bees and in-betweens.

. . . and you! You’ve had all kinds of firsts in sex, desire and romance. Pick one and put your name in the hat for a chance to spill all on the Spill! stage.

And more! One lucky audience member will win Spill!’s sex-toy raffle, courtesy of Babeland.

Michael Pope

Michael Pope is a filmmaker whose music videos are in MTV, LOGO and RAGE rotation and have seen premieres on People, Spin and Pitchfork sites. His award winning experimental film Neovoxer united hundreds of artists from the United States and the Czech Republic in a “primal scream of creative expression” and he was once bestowed the title of “Boston’s Best Visual Artist” by the Boston Phoenix. He continues his career as artist and raconteur with his one man show Michael Pope Is Gay For Pay, chronicling his legendary career as a phone sex operator in New York City.

Jessica VonDyke

Jessica VonDyke is a sex educator on a mission. Her plan is to open a sex shop called “The Garden” on the H Street corridor in Northeast DC. The Garden will be a retail shop for sex toys and erotic items, and also be an educational community center to teach about safe, pleasurable activities from a sex-positive perspective.

The Grey A

The Grey A is a new music project sparked from the mind of DC songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Greg Jacks. Cutting his teeth in the creative pool of Nashville for a decade, Jacks has only recently begun performing in the Washington music scene. Grey A music, while melodically catchy, is lyrically sharp, focused primarily on the taboos of sex, religion, and politics. Jacks leads his listeners on a journey from the hard-right positions of his sheltered, Southern upbringing to the more comfortable middle ground of mature understanding.
