Queer Behavior's successful Queer Storytelling Tea Time was so well attended when it was at ILLIO that it's moved to a bigger space on CCAD's campus. --->
Friday, March 25th, 8-10:pm, Tea Time: A Queer Storytelling Event. Canzani Center, 60 Cleveland Ave, Columbus, Ohio 43215. Time to spill the tea. Let's get together and share our truth! Bring your 3-10 minute story and a willingness to be front and center. We'll provide an audience, a theme, and some snacks! Make them funny, sad, frightening, charming, or a mix...just enjoy yourself and we'll enjoy your story. The theme this time will be "LEGACIES: AGELESS STORIES OF OUR QUEER ELDERS". We are seeking stories about and from our elders! Special emcees Erin Upchurch and Zack Baird will lead a combination of featured speakers and same-day submissions to create two hours of realness. Listeners and tellers are equally welcome. Sharing stories is a powerful way to deconstruct and reclaim narratives while making meaning that is one’s own. Too often we take details that are thrust upon us by the social hegemony or even by each other. Ask yourself: is this my story or someone else’s? Telling your story, in your way, acts to shuck that which is obstructive. Doing this together in a safer space creates an environment primed to actually being heard. We also will have an opportunity to consider our collective narrative as a queer community. Donations are welcome!
