Ivan Coyote and an all-tomboy band blend story, music and memory in a fearless, wry-humoured and tender insight into gender issues, defying the norm and finding your identity.

Tomboy Survival Guide is part anthem, part campfire story, and part guidebook on how to dismantle the gender stories we tell.

Ivan and company navigate the narrow halls of public washrooms, skirt the treachery of growing up under the threat of being picked to be a flower girl, triumph over tying a double Windsor knot, and discover the beauty in realizing they were handsome all along.

This music and story-driven collaboration from award-winning writer and storyteller Ivan Coyote includes high-energy drumming and percussion from Sally Zori, the mellifluous basslines of Pebbles Willekes and the graceful tinkerings of trumpet player Alison Gorman.
