Mother Goose’s Bedtime Stories is an ongoing series of music, poetry, comedy, and dance by artists of color and indigenous artists, particularly from LGBTQ communities. This week, they’re celebrating their two-year birthday with a loud and proud evening of entertainment hosted by Ondine the Siren Queen and the Real Mother Goose (otherwise known as Xochi de la Luna). The event’s highlights include poetry by Ifrah Mansour, a performance by Doña Pepa (local choreographer Pedro Lander’s drag persona), a dance by BLAQ, music by Oyster World and Freaque, and comedy sets by Comrade Tripp and Devohn Bland. Originally produced solely by de la Luna, the Mother Goose Bedtime Stories has had a few different iterations in the past two years, and continues to adapt and change through collaborative partnerships. Here’s hoping this joyful event keeps going. All ages.
