Sunday June 7th, 2 pm   Momologues  –  Éamon Boylan, dramaturg
Momologues is an oral history driven performance piece centered around mothering. Specifically investigating what it means to be a parent of a queer child when you yourself are not queer. What are the ways moms foster confidence and fortitude in an identity that varies from their own? Playwrights Amy Ackerman, Zora Iman Crews, Jordan Ho, and Kristin Rose Kelly are tapping into that by interviewing their own mothers and performing them verbatim. See what happens when 4 unique moms: Laurie Ackerman, Chryll D. Crews, Kathleen Ho, and Rosemary Previti-Kelly take centerstage and their daughters (the actors) decide how to continue their legacy in a queer future. >  > Photos & More <

“NYC. Today. Construction everywhere. The hippest party for Gay Men Of Color is shutting it’s doors for good. Men weave through connections and misconnections, in a maze of haze, whilst thumping beats pound out a final goodbye. How could something this good be so wrong?”

Sunday, June 21st, 2 pm   The Porno Basement  –  by Monte D. Montealeagre
“Max, who was in the right place his whole life, gets stuck in the wrong place at the wrong time when he’s dragged to the Porno Basement by a dynamic duo of freelance torturers. They’re not alone down there; this place is occupied by the Guardians, a collective of seven queer pornstars that want to guide Max through his untimely end. All plans are put on hold when the cops get involved and decide to have a little fun of their own”
