Girl A (Britney Frazier*) and Boy (Cameron Matthews) share a bottle of wine.

A lamp flickers on. In her bedroom, a young girl's universe explodes around her. With the future unsettled, she must find answers and new footing in a clash against fate. all of what you love and none of what you hate is a beautiful, emotional journey punctuated by bursts of abstraction.  

Agbabiaka: There's all kinds of really interesting stuff, really interesting storytelling happening...I'm excited to see it.

OutLoud is a queer storytelling series featuring true tales by the Bay hosted by Joshua Grannell, aka Peaches Christ. To celebrate OutLoud's one-year anniversary, Joshua chose a theme near and dear to his heart: stories from the perspective behind the concession stand. OutLoud takes place at Oasis Bar in SoMa. 

Agbabiaka: It's just a wonderful night...and there's always a theme, and the stories are amazing. I've been fortunate to perform in the past.
