Mommie Queerist

was amazing! "Mommie Queerist" , is a new woman show by Kat Evasco premiering at Bindlestiff Studios and tonight I witnessed greatness.

Kat Evasco is a Tagalong lesbian playwright *Filipino* currently residing in San Francisco, CA.

Her play is an autobiographical piece showcasing the pivotal points of her life, her first kiss with a boy and a girl, the first time she fell in love, discovering her mother is a closet lesbian, coming to grips with her own sexuality, breaking the silence of cultural taboo's, finding her voice, and future aspirations filled with hope.

"Mommie Queerist" , was definitely an emotional roller coaster ride. She started the play with some of her trademark stand up comedy bits and then there were moments in the show where there was not a dry eye in the house, her monologues were so moving, as an audience member you couldn't help but feel her passion through Kat's magnificent storytelling.

What I admire most about, "Mommie Queerest" , is Kat's courage to tell her story, exposing personal truths, secrets about her family, and sheer candidness.

If you're in the Bay Area, go see this show, its worth every penny of admission! You can still her show for the first two weekends in December up until the 17th!

I give Kat's new play five ♥♥♥♥♥'s! Good job girl!
