“I'm fifteen years
old and I spend two
nights a week sitting
in circles with rich
white girls. I did not
pray for this. So if you
choose to remember
anything, remember that
my prayer was to have
been born a rich white
girl, not sit in circles
with them.”


At times funny
, biting and somber Sitting in Circles with Rich White Girls: Memoirs of a Bulimic Black Boy chronicles the performer’s life long affair with the scale and ten-plus year liaison with an eating disorder. Also a hilarious and heartbreaking exploration into the process and pattern of identity construction — in this case how growing up: fat, dark-skinned, gay and adopted by white folks affected and shaped the performer’s maturation — Sitting in Circles with Rich White Girls: Memoirs of a Bulimic Black Boy is always crushingly honest, with the performer’s greatest gift being the ability to find playfulness even in the midst of grief.
