Queer Memoir is NYC's longest-running and most ridiculously earnest multi-venue themed LGBT storytelling show and an event chosen as an Obama White House Champion of Change nominee. In this special livestream edition, we're bringing storytellers from as far as we can find 'em to share stories around the theme POLYAMORY. 


List of storytellers coming soon! 


More about Queer Memoir:

Queer Memoir is an opportunity to give voice to our collective queer experiences, preserve and document our complex queer history and celebrate the ritual and community-building value of storytelling. And have fun of course. We have a lot of fun!


Queer Memoir celebrates the storyteller in all of us; every month we join together some of NYC's best-known performers and folks who have never been on a stage in their lives. We provide coaching, workshops, support and whatever storytellers need to get on stage- if you have a story to tell please get in touch.


More about the producer:

Kelli Dunham is the genderqueer ex-nun storytelling nurse comic so common in modern Brooklyn. Kelli has appeared on Showtime and the Discovery Channel, the Moth Mainstage, the Cinderblock Comedy Festival, PBS/WGBH's Stories From the Stage, and nationwide at colleges, prides, fundraisers and even the occasional livestock auction. Kelli is the author of seven hilarious nonfiction books about not humorous subjects (including grief & death) and is celebrating the release of her newest comedy album "Not The Gym Teacher."

New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio once called Kelli a show off. To her face.



Going crazy yet? Craving information, but starting to feel desperate to receive it in a non-depressing way? Worried about the state of art and intelligent discussion in the time of social distancing? We got you.

Beginning this week, your favorite nerdy basement bar will host livestreams 5 nights a week with extra-special online editions of our shows. Medical advice without any bullsh*t! Wrestlemania-style debates over different scientific principles (where you can chime in)! Political science with that ever-needed dash of showmanship! If it’s smart and it’s weird and it’s entertaining, you know we’re gonna give it to you.

It’s a weird time and it may only get weirder. Hopefully some good old fashioned intelligent nightlife can help get you through it - right from the safety of your home.

And if you’d like to contribute to the artists and keeping the venue alive, here’s a link where you can do that! We’ll split whatever comes in between making sure Caveat stays functioning and the artists on stage. 


Wash your hands and keep calm: Caveat is here to keep our community comforted and our creators working.
