Yoni Ki Baat - 10th Anniversary
posted February 24, 2014 4:38 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sat March 22 at 6:30 PM, Women's Building
3543 18th Street, San Francisco, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
Yoni Ki Baat, inspired by The Vagina Monologues, presents true stories by and about South Asian women talking about sexuality, gender, and womanhood as it intersects with race and culture. To celebrate 10 years in the Bay Area, this year's production will present selected work from past shows, covering topics from queer desire to infertility, body hair to facial hair, sex on a plane to sex in public, and much more - including a diatribe against Fair and Lovely. There are 2 evening productions on March 22nd and 23rd and a self-identified-women's only matinee on March 23rd. Tix are $15: partial proceeds go towards supporting organisations that help women and girls.
I'm one of the performers at this year's production - I performed last year and wrote a piece for the year before and have found it an amazing, supportive, powerful experience. Our crew come from all over the South Asian diaspora: some who have been based in the US since birth or childhood and others who are relatively new to the area, queer and straight people, all sorts of gender presentations.

Dates and times of shows:

March 22nd: 6:30pm
March 23rd: 12:30pm (women's only), 5pm
