The following description was submitted by the event organizer.


Check out Telltale, a monthly curated storytelling event for people that like to get vulnerable and take no shit. Keen on connection, laughter, heartbreak, poignant moments, and community building.

At Telltale, you can expect about eight performers to tell you a story via comedy, speeches, music, essays, and more. Your evening will likely include honesty, curse words, enthusiasm, dark humor, connection….and sometimes something unexpected. So please remind yourself that the world is bigger than you think, and you're never alone. Share stories of folks like you, and not like you, but always rooted in community, connection, fighting the good fight, and moving forward together.

(Psssssst: There will also be a very good raffle.)

This month's theme is "Back Fat and Bad Decisions," with a stellar lineup of fat performers telling you about the wildest bad decisions they’ve ever made. This event is part of the Fat Joy Summer Celebration Weekend — check out all their other events, too. 

There is no room for any oppressive garbage. Don't even try, pal.

This community is better if you are part of it.
