Carrying.On (Queer Narratives On Life and Death)

November 1, 7:00 pm-9:00 pm

“Carrying.On” is a special edition the monthly queer storytelling show, TELL. Hosted and curated by Drae Campbell. TELL has been featured on “This American Life” and is the longest running series at the Bureau of General Services—Queer Division. “Carrying.On” features two powerhouse storytellers: Pooya Mohseni and Elsa Waithe. They will be sharing their own true stories and or narratives around the themes of life , death and carrying on. In the LGBTQ community, as with most marginalized communities, we go to a lot of memorials. The way in which we honor Queer people’s lives in life and death belongs to us just as our stories do. There will also be an opening musical set by Vie Paula. TELL is an event that seeks to give space to queer individuals to own their narratives around large themes. A chance to “snatch back the narrative“ and tell their stories on their own terms.

Suggested donation of $10 to benefit the Bureau. No one turned away for lack of funds.
