October 22: Queer Open Mic with James Caroline

Do you know what you are wearing? Do you know who you will be?

Halloween is coming, you know. Heck – this is San Francisco. Halloween is here!

What haven’t you been, this year? What would you like to be? A pirate? a princess? An astronaut? a thief? An astro-pirate? the princess of thieves? A spangle-sparkling desperado with horns and a ukulele?

October is the month to try on new things, new looks, new characters – and share them with us down at Queer Open Mic! Also sharing will the fantastic James Caroline, who’s trying on a new side of the continent for us!
