Hall of Femme

When it comes to the members of Sister Spit – a touring group of queer-core performance artists – scandalous may just be the half of it. Gathered from the ’zine libraries and coffee shops of San Francisco, the eight femme-centric performers in the group are always eager to assail an audience with uncensored words and raw visions.

Watch out now.

Michelle Tea, writer and co-founder of the original Sister Spit shows, is leading a fresh lineup on another cross-country tour right after returning from a similar run around Europe. Joining Tea are novelist Beth Lisick, graphic novelist and L-Word staffer Ariel Schrag, spoken-word spitter Kirya Traber, transgender performer Ben McCoy, visual artist/writer Sara Seinberg, and photographer/novelist Rhiannon Argo. World-traveling AZ scribe Tania Katan will also join the tour for its Phoenix stop.
