6/11 Sweet Little Pride & Solidarity Show (Virtual Show #3)

Tune in here for the premier of our annual Pride show this Thursday, June 11 at 8pm!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILRl8hIxySw

With Rhode Island Pride being cancelled due to COVID-19, the movement to end racial violence catching speed (https://www.risolidarityfund.org), and our community of performers being out of work, the cost of your ticket will benefit all three of these communities! After all, we're a variety show able to embrace the complexities of overlapping experiences, and we know that a little joy goes a long way.

If you've ever been curious to attend this anti-racist, queer friendly, feminist, and body-positive cabaret, but night time makes you sleepy, or the unknown makes you frightened, this is your chance to see what all of the fuss is about from the comfort of the perch of your choosing. You can:

1. Experience this special premiere along with other Sweet Little fans through the magic of YouTube, OR...
2. Attend the premiere at Askew Prov! (RI's Phase 2 guidelines are being followed. See https://www.askewprov.com/ for details.)
Either way, tune in on 6/11 at 8pm and invite anyone who'll enjoy local, live, original entertainment with a conscience.

THIS IS IMPORTANT: The ticket price/suggested donation is $10 per viewer. ($0 if COVID made you broke. More if you can.)
Contribute through PayPal or Venmo at one of these two links:

- Sasha of Beledi Dance Company
- Vatic Kuumba
- Comic Rich Hite
- Kristen Minsky
- Assa Sination

- and Host Eva Destruction (aka Eve Condon)

Again, to JOIN THIS PARTY, be sure to:
1) Make your donation via Paypal or Venmo above. (You can do this now, before you view, or at any time.)
2) Check-in here day of show for the YouTube link, or attend at Askew!

After clicking the link on Thursday, you will see a countdown to the start of the premiere, as you join others to watch the third Sweet Little Virtual Show. If you'd like, choose a viewing setting that allows you to post and view live comments. Otherwise, set it to full screen and sit back and enjoy.

(If you can't join the live broadcast, the show will remain available on YouTube, so you can still watch and donate .)

Please spread the word! THANK YOU!♥

“It’s an artist’s duty to reflect the times in which we live.” -- Nina Simone
Our country has begun a transformation since our last show in May. This upheaval is necessary and centuries overdue, and it requires us as artists to take stock of where we stand. Sweet Little Variety Show has always striven to create a space that is anti-racist, queer-friendly, feminist, and body-positive. We unequivocally say Black Lives Matter, and we affirm our commitment to the work demanded by anti-racism in dismantling white supremacist patriarchal hegemony, including police violence against Black and Brown people, LGBTQ+ people, and people with disabilities.
Our June show is traditionally a fundraiser for Rhode Island Pride, which is honoring its roots this year as an uprising against police brutality led by trans women of color. In recognition of that, we will be splitting the proceeds from our June show between Rhode Island Pride and the Rhode Island Solidarity Fund, which we encourage you to learn more about here: https://www.risolidarityfund.org/who-we-are.
We wish you a happy and meaningful Pride, and we look forward to safely seeing you all again.
The SLVS Team
