Mangos With Chili knows that queer and trans* folks of color do love, sex and total disaster like none other! In this special Valentine’s themed production queer and trans* folks of color will tell their true life stories of love, desire and disaster through music, spoken word, theater, dance, drag, film, and video diaries. Bring a trinket for the altar we’ll build to the loves we’ve lost, known, and are praying for, and come prepared to hear truths you’ve never heard spoken before but always needed to.
Promising to be sexy, smart, provocative, comical and touching, WHIPPED is sure to explore the many faceted aspects of desire, from the dark to the jubilant.
Valentines exchange to follow shows, so get them lovenotes and that courage ready!

Eastside is wheelchair accessible and all ages. Shows contain mature content. So that performers and community members with chemical injury can attend, we ask that attendees come fragrance free. Lots of info about how to do so and POC products can be found here: http://www.brownstargirl.org/1/post/2012/03/fragrance-free-femme-of-colour-realness-draft-15.html
