Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam & Open Mike for Women & Trans’
Tuesday April 28th 7pm – 9pm
Feature Writers: Christine Hamm & Jackie Torres
Christine Hamm’s poetry explores violence, dreams and the space inside contemporary women where those two experiences overlap.
Jackie Torres writes about racial identity and her own Afro-Latina identity as well as how that identity ties into feminist ideals and visions. She also writes a lot about American hypocrisy/privilege/attitude; otherwise her poetry describes her misadventures as a young and angsty artist of color.
This series, started in 1999, is hosted by Vittoria repetto -the hardest working guinea butch dyke poet on the lower east side.
