The Sister Spit tour kicks off next week in San Francisco at the Elbo Room! A group of core performers - including me, Chinaka Hodge, Rhiannon Argo, Dia Felix, Lenelle Moise, Beth Lisick and Jerry Lee Abram - will travel all over to bring you some incredible writing and performance.
From March 19 through April 15 we'll be visiting:
New York City
Afterwards I'll be heading to Earlham University in Indiana to give a lecture and then the amazing folks at the Q Center at University of Washington in Seattle have invited me to give a talk on April 22. I hope to see you at one of these shows and/or lectures! For more details on the tour dates, locations and performer bios and to donate to Sister Spit visit:
