Dark Matter #It Gets Bitter Nashville Benefit For Tntj! says
#ItGetsBitter is an interruption: a hybrid mixture of art and activism, poetry and polemic, giggles and gasps. #ItGetsBitter is a remix of spoken word, stand up comedy, fashion, and nursery rhymes. DarkMatter shares stories of navigating the world in all of its ordinariness and peculiarity as trans South Asians, taking the audience on an emotional roller coaster all of the way from the personal to the political. Join us for an evening of poetry and healing as we not only critique – but imagine new ways of being and resisting together.

1008 19th Avenue South
