WHEN: February 27th.

Some boring yet important rules when entering the queer space: Please note that you have to be present to sing up. You cannot sign up someone else. You cannot give up your spot on the list. You do not choose when you go up. Signing up gives you 5 minutes to do one piece and one piece only, WE WILL CUT YOU OFF IF YOU GO OVER TIME. And please please please, rules aside, have fun and share and enjoy the queer space.

now for our feature!!
