Tipi Confessions partnered with the Toronto Queer Film Festival and the Indigenous Curatorial Collective/Collectif des commissaires autochtones to bring you:

Tipi Confessions Turned On… Line

On demand streaming access  

Tipi Confession is a storytelling event curated with performances and stories that expose the vulnerability, humour, confusion, and sexy details of sex and sexuality. Our performers are the soul of our show and your confessions are the heart.

Through this partnership, we’ve curated a line-up of stories and performances centering Indigenous women, two-spirit, and queer storytelling and experiences featuring Taté Walker, e.macias, JD Pet Wussy, Juniper Whispers, Tai Amy Grauman, Miss Odemiin Surprise!, and members from the Edmonton Indigenous Poets Society: K’alii Luuyaltkw, Chasidy Gray, and Sage Giroux. 

And our host and MC Tracy Bear reveals the details of your anonymously submitted confessions in between the performances.

We’re grateful for your support and that you choose to spend your time with us.

We are proud to partner with the Toronto Queer Film Festival and the Indigenous Curatorial Collective/Collectif des commissaires autochtones for this event.

You can also find more details about ICCA programming on their website.

This project is funded by Canadian Heritage.

About us

The Toronto Queer Film Festival is a collectively-run, artist-centered, not-for-profit festival that showcases contemporary, innovative, queer and trans film and video art. We are especially interested in supporting formally experimental films and/or social justice-themed projects that center the experiences of Indigenous people, people of color, people with disabilities, transgender people, sex workers, porn makers, and other communities often marginalized in contemporary LGBT cultural programming and spaces.

The Indigenous Curatorial Collective / Collectif des commissaires autochtones (ICCA) is an Indigenous run and led non-profit organization that aims to support and connect fellow Indigenous curators, artists, writers, academics, and professionals through various methods of gathering. The ICCA engages in critical discourses, increases professional opportunities for our members, develops programming, and most importantly works to build reciprocal relationships with Indigenous curators, artists, communities and the institutions we engage with.

Tipi Confessions is produced by three Indigenous women: University of Alberta professor Kim TallBear (Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate), McMaster University professor Tracy Bear (Nehiyaw’iskwew from Montreal Lake Cree Nation), and University of Alberta PhD student, Kirsten Lindquist (Cree-Métis). We are an offshoot of the popular Austin, Texas show, Bedpost ConfessionsTM, founded in 2010. For more information, visit tipiconfessions.com
