Pouring Tea: Black Gay Men of the South Tell Their Tales
This dramatic reading is based on the oral histories collected in E Patrick Johnson’s book, "Sweet Tea: Black Gay Men of the South–An Oral History." The stories are from black gay men who were born, raised, and continue to live in the South and range in age from 19 to 93. This performance covers coming of age in the South, religion, sex, transgenderism, love stories, and coming out. Johnson embodies these and others’ tales in the show.
E. Patrick Johnson is a performance artist, ethnographer, and scholar who has performed nationally and internationally. He has published widely in the area of race, gender, sexuality and performance and is currently a professor of Performance Studies and African American Studies at Northwestern University.
