Wednesday, September 3
1214 Queen Street West, Toronto
PLEASE NOTE THE TIME CHANGE! We’re starting earlier this month with doors at 7:30 and storytelling at 8!
This month’s Tell Me Something Good theme is Hot For Teacher: Back To School. It’s our EIGHTH event!!
It’s that time of year again when backpacks go on and playgrounds get filled, but there’s so much more to education than just math and science classes.
This theme invites you to tell us your saucy school related stories. Maybe you’ll share that cool technique you learned in that sex ed workshop you went to, or the time you made out under the bleachers, or the time you and the TA totally fucked in the lecture hall after class. There’s plenty of ways for this theme to be interpreted, and after last month’s “kink” event, we can’t WAIT to see what you’re going to share with us next.
How it works for Interested Storytellers:
You sign up and we’ll toss names into a hat to pick up to 10-15 storytellers for slots of up to 5 minutes each. There are points for engaging with the audience (so don’t just read the whole thing!) and it must be a true story!
Samantha Fraser (@nympsam) and Sophie Delancey (@sophiedelancey) are your lovely co-hosts every month for your storytelling pleasure. Tell Me Something Good (@TellMeToronto)is your opportunity to share short stories of sexual glory, gaffes, and growth for the chance to win sexy prizes, or if you’d rather not share, feel free to just sit back and be entertained.
IMPORTANT TIME CHANGE:
Doors are now at 7:30 with some fun warm-up activities, including Truth or Dare. Storytelling kicks off at 8 pm sharp! Also, this event will be free once again, so make sure you show up early to grab your seat.
We’ll have an esteemed panel of judges who will start the night off with a few of their own stories and then rank each entry to choose our winners at the end of the night.
*** Important note: We strive on making this a safe(r) event. We will not tolerate homophobia, racism, transphobia, ablism, agism, misogyny, whorephobia, slut shaming, fat-phobia, or any other jerky behaviour or language. Don’t yuck someone else’s yum! Please make sure that your stories are respectful so that everyone can feel included and have a good time! And in the words of Samantha’s first crush, Wil Wheaton, don’t be a dick! ***
