The Big Gay StorySlam is a theatrical performance meets head to head competition all wrapped in a bold, unique and totally fabulous wrapping! The Big Gay StorySlam is a celebration of LGBTQA+ voices (and straight allies)! 

Emcee for the evening: Drag Queen Pissi Myles

A curated list of storytellers (with the occasional audience wild card) tell stories that MUST be: 

1. Completely, 100%, utterly true / First-hand experiences 

2. Told without any notes 

3. Told within 5-6 minutes 

The joy of a story slam is that ANY kind of yarn can be spun! Stories can range from pants-peeing hilarity to soul-wrenching heartbreak. StorySlams are an irresistible fusion of theater, memoir and documentary art. Combined with special performances by the incredible drag, cabaret and comedy talent of the city this event will be one not to miss!

*Heading to the International Edinburgh Fringe after its ONE NIGHT ONLY presentation in NYC!
