“Can a mother and daughter really share the closet?
Bindlestiff Studio and Guerrilla Rep are proud to present Kat Evasco in Mommy Queerest, written by Kat Evasco & John Caldon and directed by John Caldon. If Margaret Cho and Ellen Degeneres conceived a lesbian love baby, she would have nothing on this hilarious Bay Area actor and stand-up comic. Don’t miss Kat’s hard-earned lessons on staying classy while ho’ing around, reverse-colonizing America, and figuring out how to get your mom to come out of the closet.
Mommy Queerest begins with Kat having the earth-shattering realization that she and her mother are both lesbian. Too bad her mom hasn’t figured it out yet—despite the fact she’s been living with her partner since Kat was six years old! After a spectacularly failed attempt to share this epiphany with her mom, Kat lurches through her own teenage sexploration with guys and girls, trying to figure out how she fits in with her family, community, and self. After a decade of attempting to educate this wayward parent about what it means to be lesbian, she discovers there is still a thing or two she can learn from her mom.”

“In the 2008 Prop 8 campaign to ban same sex marriage in California, Samoan/Tongan and other Pacific Islander communities were demonized by the media and U.S. based churches—that many Pacific Islanders are loyal members of—as homophobic fanatics who hate gay people.
In Sustaining Community: Queer Pacific Islanders Shaping California, Queer Pacific Islanders from Micronesia, Melanesia and Polynesia take front and center stage to dispel these myths and present narratives of Queer Pacific Islanders’ struggles to proliferate and protect queer communities, fight for the betterment of Pacific Islanders and tell of their battles for social justice. The narratives are told through traditional and modern dance, dialogues and monologues, poetry, original music and video.”
