Sitting in Circles with Rich White Girls


At times funny, biting and somber Sitting in Circles with Rich White Girls: Memoirs of a Bulimic Black Boy is the groundbreaking and crushingly honest reclamation story of a fat, gay, bulimic, black boy raised by white parents and struggling to find beauty, acceptance and safe spaces — in a world short on all.

With playful humor and sharp observance, Sitting in Circles… takes audiences on an intense and insightful journey, along the way unpacking the mother lode of identity construction and self-preserving mechanisms. Yet, with the performer's greatest gift being the ability to find playfulness in the midst of grief these stories are funnier than they are tragic. Ultimately demonstrating how even the most painful of experiences can be reclaimed, transformed, and accepted for what they are: the building blocks of our unique identities.
