Telltale: Something Wicked…

Hey, champ! Thanks for checking out Telltale. This used to be a monthly curated storytelling event for people that like to get vulnerable and take no shit, and it looks like it might be again? We are into genuine connection, laughter, heartbreak, poignant moments, and community building. We, in theory, should be just kicking off our 4th season, but…things got real weird. So I can’t promise that Telltale is back, because the future feels pretty hard to predict or commit to. But we are at least going to have a October show. Yeah, it’s going to be on zoom and not in person. Yeah, it’s not the same. But it’s better than nothing. And I said I’d do the show until the government stopped making…

Telltale: Nothing Ever Goes Away

Hey, champ! Thanks for checking out Telltale. This used to be a monthly curated storytelling event for people that like to get vulnerable and take no shit, and perhaps it will be again. We are into genuine connection, laughter, heartbreak, poignant moments, and community building. We, in theory, should be just kicking off our 4th season, but…things got real weird. So I can’t promise that Telltale is back, because the future feels pretty hard to predict or commit to. But we are at least going to have a September show. Yeah, it’s going to be on zoom and not in person. Yeah, it’s not the same. But it’s better than nothing. And I said I’d do the show until the government stopped making me angry…

JAMONDRIA HARRIS: Audiovisual Soundscapes and Live Rounds

all new parts are entire: a circle of audiovisual soundscapes and live rounds from chloe alexandra, c. lavender, and jamondria harris (meroitic). Curated by jamondria harris for their 2020 artist residency at Yale Union. Sunday, Sept. 20, 2020 3pm PDT/6pm EDT Livestreaming on TWITCH C.

Lavender has performed, lectured, and hosted workshops at MoMA, the Guggenheim Museum, the Hirshhorn Museum, the…

DREAMs Deferred Live

Stories have power. We believe the most important stories often come from the immigrant community. Despite the historic Supreme Court ruling in June protecting DACA recipients, some groups continue to challenge the rights of undocumented immigrants. Now is the time to listen to the stories of individuals who have grown up undocumented in the United States. In partnership with the City of Beaverton, The Immigrant Story presents “DREAMs Deferred Live,” a two day event featuring one night of soulful music and another night of moving storytelling by immigrants in our community. To kick off this week long celebration, we invite you to hear five compelling stories told — and lived — by members of our community who grew up with American values without feeling valued…

feat. Rain DeGrey, Tatiyanna Shirley, Earthnova, and Das Loomis From vanilla to kinky, queer to straight, and everything in between, a night at The Mystery Box Show brings you tales of one-night stands, explorations into fetish, awkward first times, dark fantasies come true, and much much more. Storytellers have included bestselling authors, nationally touring comedians, adult film industry veterans, theatre professionals, sex toy experts, members from the kink community, students and people from all walks of life. Nothing here is too raw, too sweet, too strange, or too deep; it’s all about the sex, and all about the story. [YouTube Link]
