Queer Memoir: What The Hell Was That About

SUN // AUG 15 // 04:00PM


Queer Memoir is NYC's longest running and most ridiculously earnest multi-venue themed LGBT storytelling show and an event chosen as a Obama White House Champion of Change nominee.

In this first IRL post pandemic event, storytellers are attempting to answer the question "What The Hell Was That About?" And by "that" we might mean the pandemic, or we might mean some other messed up shit we've been dealing with.

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.


Doors 3:30 PM, show 4:00 PM.
Tickets $15 in advance, $18 at the door, $5 livestream.


No outside food or drink is allowed.


As we re-open we're doing everything we can to keep our audience, performers, and staff safe and are complying with all Covid regulations.

As part of this, all attendees must present proof of full vaccination to enter. Proof can be via the New York State Excelsior pass, a physical copy of the CDC card, a photo of your CDC card, or other electronic record of vaccination includes name and date (e.g., some chain pharmacies have an app with this information). In all cases the name must match that on your photo ID.

Our full Covid policies can be found here.
