Check out these photos from the preview performance of my solo show!

Hey everyone!

I’ve been super busy, with shows, and my day job, and rehearsals, so I haven’t been able to post much here, which sucks, cause I like posting on here, but anyway. The preview performance of my solo show went really well. It sold out very quickly. Then the theatre decided to add some chairs and open up a bunch of tickets, so I made an announcement that there were only a few tickets left. The extra seats we added sold out in like an hour. I was very grateful and touched that so many folks wanted to come see the show. The night of the show I was very nervous but had a ton of fun on stage. I’m very grateful to all the folks that helped me make the show happen. From the great folks at The San Francisco Arts Commission with their generous support from the Individual Theatre Artist Grant. Super thanks to Evren Odcikin my director. Super thanks to  Ericka Sokolower-Shain our stage manager, Yo Ann Martinez, my project manager,  Carrie Gocker, my incredible make up artist,  Mark McBeth, who did my promo shots, Tirumari Jothi, who designed my postcard, and Wonder Dave, who helped every step of the ay, and Fabian Echevarria for taking the pictures. 1000 thanks to the folks at Brava, Stacy and Sarah Guerra, and BiancaEstella de la Rocha, and Kolmel W Love and Kathy Anderson. Thank you for Matt Beld for lending me his ball gag, and thank you to Riss Rosado for lending me the most epic bat ever. And a very very big thank you to Kevin Seaman. Very big thank you to Pam and everyone at the Queer Cultural Center. And if I missed anyone, just throw stuff at me. Hope to see everyone at the show show. I might do it in October. Stay tuned for more info. Also, thank you to Ricardo Alvarez and Ashton Di Vito for being willing to be my shirtless donut boys.

Now Check Out these Pictures!

#Go See Brouhaha!

My Recommendations for the National Queer Arts Festival!

People always ask me, Baruch what should I go see at the legendary National Queer Arts Festival? I usually say, MY SHOW, MY SHOW ONLY!! haha but no, there are a ton of amazing shows happening during the festival, you should try to see all of them! We are so lucky, so lucky to live somewhere that hosts such an important event like this, it’s amazing orgs like the Queer Cultural Center and all of their hard work that help keep the bay area queer spirit alive! If you cannot make it to all the show I’m going to be posting about my recommendations throughout the month. I’m only picking shows of people I know personally well, or shows I know will rock, if I don’t pick your show don’t get mad at me, it just means I don’t know your work super well, or you.

I HIGHLY recommend going to Brouhaha! This show is Trans People of Color comedy festival and will be amazing.  Click on the link HERE for more info and to get your tickets!

You All Need to come to this Show!

I’m hosting the sneak preview of Kevin Seaman’s one person show brilliantly titled #femasculine. Kevin Seaman is one of the most exciting and entertaining artists in the Bay Area. Not only do they work it on stage, they are also incredibly smart, entertaining, and work their butts off to support other queer artists in the city. We’ve been through thick and thin together, performance art workshops, Perverted Mime Videos, impromptu sex parties, shows at museums, theaters, bars, cabarets, other dimensions with with the mystic all powerful Zebrovski! And now I get to host his SHOW!

His show description goes like this “Can you be genderqueer in the streets and a man in the sheets? Can you solve racism through hook-up apps? Can drag be the antidote to toxic masculinity? …and if so, will you ever get laid after doing it? In the binary world of gay men, Kevin Seaman wants it all!” Get your tickets now to see Kevin’s show by clicking HERE!

I will be hosting and doing an opening reading of poetry. See you all there, hopefully! Oh Oh! She also takes great pics! CHECK OUT HIS AWESOME INSTGRAM HERE!

#femasculine June 21st at Brava Theatre 7:30, Tickets only $15!
