Hiatus - Enjoy our virtual shows!

We're sad that the pandemic has forced SLVS to take this hiatus after ten consistent years of monthly live entertainment. We look forward to announcing our next live show!

In the meantime, to quench your thirst for a variety of anti-racist, queer-positive, body-positive and feminist entertainment, please enjoy our three virtual shows! We filmed these in April, May and June 2020 with host Eva Destruction and various local performers. Viewers' generous donations raised over $4500 for out-of-work performers, Askew Bistro Staff, RI Pride, and the RI Solidarity Fund. Enjoy!
