Please note: this month we are meeting upstairs in the Loft.

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 always surprising storytellers tell tales of the unexpected:

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

Michael Bryan (Creepy Kid)

Ray Cordova (Nobody’s Token)

John Flynn (Upright Citizen’s Brigade)

Roman Rimer (Greener Grass)

. . . and you! You’ve surprised, been surprised or are you simply jaded? 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.
