Bring Your Own
and Last Call, the queer history archive and performance collective
, will co-host an outdoor storytelling event at LGBT Community Center May 11. "Sugar in Your Tank: Stories of Queer Resistance" features stories by eight LGBT folks around the theme of organizing and activism. A Facebook post announcing the event promises the "cutest (gayest) story slam ever."
This event also will be recorded for a resistance-themed episode of Last Call's podcast. It's all part of the organization's "Queer Histories//Queer Futures" initiative, which hosts workshops and salons in an effort to compile and preserve LGBT oral histories.
Chairs will be provided at the event, and food and drinks are available for purchase. The event takes place from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. It's free to attend.
