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 a ten plus year liaison with an eating disorder. Also an 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.
