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 untamed storytellers as they walk the wild side:
Hosted by Jefferson (One Life Take Two, Bare!)
Reggie Melbrough (Don’t Block The Box)
Slam Poet (Urban Erotika)
. . . and you! You’ve got stories, mild to wild. 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 sexy raffle, courtesy of The Garden.
