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 us this month as our storytellers go long with tales of scores won, lost and settled:

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

Lynsey G (New York City Poetry Brothel)

Amy Jo Goddard (Sex Educator)

Musical guest Calum Ingram

. . . and you! You’ve scored, won and lost. Put your name in the hat for a chance to spill all on the Spill! stage.

And still more! One lucky audience member will win one Spill!’s sexy raffle prize.
