After a sold-out show last year, Tomboy Survival Guide is back at OUTstages!

Tomboy Survival Guide is part anthem, part campfire story, and part instructions for the dismantling of the gender stories we tell. Ivan Coyote and an all-tomboy band take the audience on a musical journey navigating the narrow halls of public washrooms, skirting the childhood threat of being picked to be a flower girl, triumphing over tying a double Windsor knot, and discovering the beauty in being handsome, not pretty, all along.

Blending story, spoken word, music, soundscape, and memory, Tomboy Survival Guide is a live stage experience that defies genre and gender boxes with fearless truth-telling and compassionate defiance. Tomboy Survival Guide is made up of storyteller and writer Ivan Coyote, bass player Pebbles Willekes, drummer Sally Zori, and trumpet player Alison Gorman.
