About the Event

For a special Spring Fling edition of Stripped Queer, three queer artists join host Frankie Valentine to read their own writing and published queer literature, wearing absolutely nothing.

Exploring radical vulnerability through the body and the written word, Stripped Queer invites you discover what it means to stand in front of an audience and bare your soul, as well as your body.

This event is recommended for audiences 18+.
