We are against hate which targets continually marginalized people, no matter if they are Asian, Asian-American, Pacific Islanders, Black, Indigenous, people of color, and LGBTQ+ identifying. We support movements for reform, protest, and equality. A collection of resources and organizations working toward these efforts, and those which offer support, can be found here.

We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.

An additional list of support and relief funds can be found here.

Telltale Presents: _______ Will Save Us

Hey, champ!

Thanks for checking out Telltale. We are a monthly curated storytelling event for people that like to get vulnerable and take no shit. We are into genuine connection, laughter, heartbreak, poignant moments, and community building. We are getting ready to close out our fourth season.

Yeah, it’s on zoom, which isn’t the same. But it’s better than nothing. And I said I’d do the show until things stopped making me angry…. and….you see my point.

At Telltale, you can expect about 6-8 performers sharing something with you, in the way that feels right to them–so there will be a mix of comedy, stories, music, essays, and more. Your evening will likely include honesty, swear words, enthusiasm, resistance, dark humor, connection….and whatever else you want, since you’ll be chilling in your own living room. Have a drink or not. Eat snacks or not. Wear pajamas. It’s whatever. It’s going to be harder to make new friends, but we are going to still provide a little bit of space for that. You know how hard it is to make new friends as an adult!? Let’s try. There will also be a stellar raffle.

We are specifically focused on stories from people that can get vulnerable but also take no shit, fierce humans that know how to fight the good fight but also like naps and staying home most nights. (Which is a lot of us now?)

This month’s theme is “_________ Will Save Us.” Because it does feel like we need saving, or that we need to save ourselves, but I’m not uncertain what could possibly save us. Performers will use that theme in their story in some way, or will at least be inspired by it somehow.

The show will take place via zoom. Tickets will be a suggested $7 but as usual, you’ll be welcome to give more or less. The ticket fees are going to be split evenly between the performers after the show. The raffle ticket money will go towards keeping the show running, which we very much appreciate. If you can’t afford it, that’s cool. We want you in the room with us more than we want your money. Also, if you won’t make it to the show when it’s live, a link will be sent out afterwards so you can watch it on your own time.

Show is at 7pm, It will still involve raffle prizes, community, an awkward intermission, good music, me feeling anxious, and more.

Also, we have no room for any oppressive garbage. So there’s that.

I think that covers it. I’ll see you there. I think you’re very cool and the event will be better with you there. I miss your damn face.
