A Cool Event


Quinn Fontaine: Hung Like a Seahorse
Studio Center of Santa Fe
$15 – $25
Thu, Aug 23 – Sun. Aug 26
Fontaine presents the “show and tell” version of his memoir, live and in person, directed by Susan Mele. Stand-up comedy, old family photos, poignant reflection and uplifting storytelling—it’s all here, and if you haven’t seen it yet, now is absolutely the time. It’s based on his memoir, subtitled A Real-Life Transgender Adventure of Tragedy, Comedy, and Recovery, if that gives you an idea of the wild ride you’re in for.
