100 Boyfriends by Brontez Purnell

July 25th 6-7:30pm 

The Museum House Porch @ Peralta Hacienda Park, Oakland, CA

100 Boyfriends is a series of innovative vignettes, snippets, and short stories exploring despair, connection, desire, heartbreak, identity, and sex. Purnell is something of a legend in the Bay Area punk scene, and a friend of the BBC. It's a short, wild read.
