Each month, 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.

Join our sure-shot storytellers as they take aim with tales of miscues:

Hosted by Jefferson (One Life Take Two, Bare!)

Jennifer Luu (Storyteller)

Sampson McCormick (Comic, Activist)

Dixon Mason (Fetish Model)

Musical guest Flo Anito

. . . and you! You’ve got stories of taking aim, missing the mark or scoring a bull’s eye. Try your luck by putting your name in the hat for a chance to spill all on the Spill! stage.

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

Note: Join us after Spill! as we head over to Busboys and Poets for StoryLeague’s Story Contest DC. Discount tickets available to those who attend Spill! RSVP for details.
