There Once Was A Muse… Poetry Reading and Q&A (In-Person Event)

December 12, 2021 @ 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

One of NYC’s favorite male figure models and boylesque performer, Sloppi Chulo will be reading a selection of his naughty limericks from his brand new chapbook, “There Once Was A Muse…” and discussing his work (both written and performative). “There Once Was A Muse…” is the brand new publication from the homoerotic art collective, Doable Guys. It pairs Sloppi Chulo’s limericks with artwork inspired by none other than the poet himself, in a deliciously narcissistic project! It features artwork by over 20 different artists.

Copies of “There Once Was A Muse…” will be available for purchase at the event.

Sloppi Chulo was born and raised in Hoboken, New Jersey. After collecting a couple of degrees from Yale University, he decided to make his parents and his alma mater proud by being a slutty slutty boy for a living. An accomplished figure model who has inspired visual artists and provided memorable drink-and-draw party experiences all over the tri-state area for over a decade, he has thousands of hours under his belt. As a performing artist and shameless exhibitionist, his leap into the world of burlesque was a natural one, debuting at the Stonewall Inn with Bad Apple Boylesque in 2015 and officially giving birth to the moniker Sloppi Chulo, a show-stealing clown who combines elements of musical theater, hip hop, physical comedy, and striptease. During the pandemic, like so many theater makers whose stages had disappeared, he transitioned to the virtual arena, starting an immediately successful OnlyFans account, where he continues to create content to make you laugh and blush, sharing artistic nudes from professional shoots as well as naughtier DIY fare, searching for the intersection between silliness and sexiness and having good dirty fun while doing it.

The event will be hosted by Kyle Anderson. He is the curator of Doable Guys, a homoerotic art collective showcasing and promoting a wide variety of styles of art from around the world. Doable Guys strives to celebrate the beauty of the male form and the Queer art community as a whole. That includes ALL queer artists, no matter their gender, sexual orientation, medium of choice or skill level.
