The award-winning and highly acclaimed queer Xicana artist, Adelina Anthony, who brought us the hilarious and thought-provoking La Hocicona Series (an epic ride with three sassy and critically engaging femmes-on-stage) will debut her latest solo comedy, MAN UP!?!
Created exclusively for allgo this new show plunges into queer people of color cultural taboos around those ever light-hearted and easy topics she loves to straddle: sexuality, religion, race/ethnicity, gender, gentrification and so much more! It’s a novel examination of macha-butch-boi and other masculine of center topics from a chameleon performer who keeps us enthralled with each new reincarnation on stage. She teams up again with her director of choice for solo comedies, the ultra-talented D’Lo. He directs this latest comedic performance of “Oh no, she didn’t… oh, yes, she did, comadre!” Remember-the real question about our flyer is not: “Is she taking those pants off or putting them on?” It’s where… and there’s only one answer: Austin, Tejas on May 10th, 2013!
Give out Day kicks off tonight at midnight. For 24 hours hundreds of queer organizations will participate in Give Out Day a new national initiative that aims to mobilize thousands of individual donors to support LGBTQ organizations.
Support allgo’s work of envisioning a just and equitable society that celebrates and nurtures vibrant people of color queer cultures.
As a community based organization it is critical that we have the support of our communities to be sustainable and to thrive. It’s in our Hands!
