Hi everyone,

My name is Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha. With Ms. Cherry Galette, I'm the artistic co-director of Mangos With Chili. We're an annual tour of queer of color performance artists. Our vision is to be like Sister Spit only all brown and queer/trans. Our first tour hit 8 cities in 10 days in the Northeast last year and sold out every show.

We're currently booking our October 2008 Borderlands Tour through the Southwest and West. Our lineup is a fabu one, including Qwo-Li Driskill, NaR, Zuleikha Mahmood, Ms. Cherry Galette, Chica Boom, Nico Dacumos, Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha and Veronica Combs, with two more folks on the way and special local guests! You can see more about last year's tour at our Myspace, http:/myspace.com/mangoswithchili.

We're on the road from October 14-28, and are traveling from Oakland through central and southern Cali, New Mexico, Arizona and west Texas.

If you want to bring us- if you have a college or university queer, women's center, multicultural center with money- if you have a local queer or POC performance night- if you have any kind of hookup anywhere in there- if you are or know a rich queer who could give us money - email me at brownstargirl@riseup.net ASAP!

I will be posting our tour doc with beautiful pictures and bios of our artists early next week on our Myspace.

LOVE,
Leah Lakshmi
