Sister Spit Spoken Word

Save the date for Sister Spit Spoken Word event on Sunday, April 15th at 7:30pm. The event will be at the Bell Museum Auditorium and will feature the artist and star of the film Short Bus, Mx. Justin Vivian Bond, and author and activist Dorothy Allison.

Sister Spit began in 1994 through the efforts of co-directors Sini Anderson and (2004 Lambda Literary Award Finalist) Michelle Tea. Sini and Michelle gathered together a group of some of the most notorious, talented, and frickin' interesting women and dykes, and went on tour all over the U.S. This year Sister Spit will be joined by BOTH the artist and star of John Cameron Mitchell's film, Short Bus, Mx. Justin Vivian Bond, and acclaimed author and activist Dorothy Allison (author of Bastard out of Carolina and Trash). Check out the Sister Spit website for more information on all performers!
This event is FREE and open to the public (donations will be collected at the door to support CeCe McDonald).
Co-sponsored with the Steven J. Schochet Endowment for GLBT Studies & Campus Life, Women's Student Activist Collective (WSAC), and Queer Student Cultural Center.
