Sex: (almost) everybody does it and (almost) nobody talks about it—except at BedPost Confessions, a live storytelling show based in Austin, Texas. Whether the featured performers are funny, informative, political, or completely personal, the anonymous confessions from the audience are the stars of every show.
Selected from our live shows, each podcast features one storyteller bookended with anonymous confessions from the audience that are read (and often commented upon) during the evening. All BedPost Storytelling Productions are made accessible to deaf audience members by the fantastic interpreters from SOULumination. Though the interpreters are there to serve the deaf, they enthrall the entire audience with their beautiful expressions of American Sign Language. If you hear a roar of laughter and don't understand why, the interpreter may have stolen the show for a minute.
BedPost Confessions Austin show dates: January 22- 24, April 22-24, July 22-24, Oct 21-23.

    125: Robert Arjet "Sexual Harassment: I Don't Get It"

    125: Robert Arjet "Sexual Harassment: I Don't Get It"

    In light of the #metoo movement, Robert Arjet calls out men to take action: "The first response that is required of us, is simple. Two words: listen and believe. Because this is not a women’s problem. It’s a men’s problem. You have to respond. You have to take a stance. You have to call other men out when they do creepy sh*t whether you saw it with your own two eyes or not." Robert, who has worked for the Texas Legislature and the Department of Family and Protective Services, enjoys policy analysis, and reads the Texas Penal Code in his spare time, shared his essay "Sexual Harassment: I Don't Get It" at the January 2018 BedPost Confessions.

    124: Chola Magnolia "Stand Femme"

    124: Chola Magnolia "Stand Femme"

    Chola Magnolia's piece "Stand Femme" speaks to femmephobia and femme invisibility within the queer community and how it spreads to society and vice versa. “Femme” is a lesbian identity that was created in the working class lesbian bar culture of the 1950’s. It was a term used to distinguish feminine lesbians and bisexual women from their butch/masculine counterparts and partners. Today it might also represent a gay non-binary individual, an asexual transwoman, or used to self-describe queer femininity for persons of any gender. In short, femme identification, both aesthetically and identity-related, means you are feminine AND you fall somewhere on the LGBTQIA spectrum.
