Picture This: Big Gay Story Slam at the Scranton Fringe Festival

A Wild Night Full of Wild Stories

The historic Scranton Cultural Center served as the launch pad for the 5th Annual Scranton Fringe Festival. The wild and welcoming, 10-day event kicked off with its signature Big Gay Story Slam on Friday, September 27. We stopped by with our camera to get a peek at all the action.

As always, huge crowds gathered in the famous Shopland Hall to catch the festival’s ever-popular, R-rated evening of tantalizing tales and laughter. The elegantly incorrigible Pissi Myles served as the evening’s Mistress of Ceremonies. One by one, past festival favorites, and curious newcomers took to the stage to tell their stories.

The room filled with roars of laughter, and often with moments of honest sincerity. Some told tales that toed the line between love, laughter and shame. And others captured the audiences’ hearts and minds with jarring reflections on lessons learned and lived.

Catch the final round of live performances and so much more at Scranton Fringe Festival through Sunday.
