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.
This month marks our first year of spilling all! Thanks to those who’ve been with us from the start, as well as to those starting with us now.
Join our forward-facing storytellers as they look back to explain how that was then, this is now:
Hosted by Jefferson (One Life Take Two, Bare!)
Damian Bellino (My High School Boyfriend Was Gay)
Robin Cloud (The Triple Minority Report)
Rod Sayegh (The P.I.T.)
LeNair Xavier (The Industry)
Musical guest Leibya Rogers (Leibya Fair Live)
. . . and you! You been there and back to then and now. Or perhaps you enjoy the occasional now and then? Put your name in the hat for a chance to spill all on the Spill! stage.
And still more! Lucky audience members will win one of Spill!’s free special first anniversary raffles.
