Women’s/Trans Poetry Jam Cancelled

This is to inform everyone (and) please pass it on) that, after 18 years, I will no longer be hosting the Women’s/Trans Poetry Jam at Bluestockings

Seems the event manager does not think that 1) I do not include enough trans people and people of color 2) I shouldn’t  ask people who look like men if they are trans or not and 3) that I too aggressive w/ my voice.

I’ve had numerous trans and persons of color read as features

FYI I ask if someone is trans it is to stop “cis men” from invading a safe space specially for women and trans. If the person says “yes, they are trans”; I accept it without further question.

And yea, I’m Italian American, I have a “loud” voice.

Anyway I’ll be looking for a new place…somewhere in downtown Manhattan, (not Tues or the weekend.)..

Thanks for listening and for the pleasure of your words

Sincerely
Vittoria repetto
