Not only does Bond read from his own book but he also discusses a number of important issues relevant to the LGBTQ community.

Critic Reviews

"Bond's fabulosity is matched by a trenchant wit, and [V's] over-the-top stories are smartly edged with politics, sexual or otherwise." (The New York Times)
"The greatest cabaret artist of [V's] generation..." (The New Yorker)
