Out In Context: A Pop Culture Odyssey
Jul 7, 2016 @ 9:30 pm - 10:30 pm| $10
Everything Bobby Hankinson knows, he learned from TV. He learned his ABCs and 123s from Sesame Street. He learned about family from Full House. He learned how to be a strong, independent woman from Living Single.
But growing up gay in a time after the HIV/AIDS crisis and before It Gets Better, there were some crucial lessons the TV never covered. Now, pop-culture junkie Bobby Hankinson attempts to fill in some important lessons about coming out, young love, sex and more using the only language he knows: ’90s TV references, cheesy movie analogies and bad pop music lyrics.
Out In Context is a part of the Proud AF Solo Fest in The Tank’s 2016 Pride Fest. For more shows visit: http://thetanknyc.org/series/pride_fest_2016/
