SpeakOut with Staceyann Chin in Miami

January 9, 2009 § Leave a comment


PERFORMANCE, WORKSHOPS & SLAM
FOR GAY, LESBIAN, BISEXUAL & TRANSGENDER YOUTH

JOIN us for a weeklong residency with nationally recognized Jamaican lesbian spoken word poet STACEYANN CHIN that includes workshops and an open mic for GLBT youth. Chin’s poetry is a bracing, no-holds-barred yet tender examination of her own life and the world around her that locates itself at the complex intersection of sexual, gender and racial identities. She co-wrote and performed in the Tony Award-nominated Russell Simmons Def Poetry Jam and presented her own one-woman shows Off-Broadway.
