Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam & Open Mike for Women & Trans’
Tuesday May 26st 7pm – 9pm
Feature Writers: Poonam Srivastava & Tsaurah Litzky
Poonam Srivastava writes from the queer crossroads of identity, freedom, sex, and politics to offer poems and prose that shine a light on our common journey from birth to death.
Tsaurah Litzky writes about loneliness and love nests, embryos and fossils, the ocean and the waves. Tsaurah Litzky writes about the only true church – the temple of the body, the passage of time, the fens of despair, my family, my friends, the need for riddles and rhymes, the fear of death and how poetry can make the future seem possible.
This series, started in 1999, is hosted by Vittoria repetto – the hardest working guinea butch dyke poet on the lower east side
