Come Watch me Defend my Muni Haiku Champion Crown against Irene Tu!

AH LIKE THIS ONE MUNI MUNI BITCH

This Saturday!

Almost a year ago I marched into the Muni Diaries show, competed against Ron Vigh in the Muni Haiku battle, and WON! I took his crown and kissed his tears and became the Muni Haiku Champion!

Here is a picture of me with the crown, it’s a shitty picture, but it’s me.

Muni Haiku Champion

I mean it’s really a headband, not a crown, but it says Muni Haiku and I love it!

This Saturday, April 15th at 6 PM come to The Elbo Room to watch me defend my title against Irene Tu. WhA MUNI HAIKU AGAINTST IRENE TUo is Irene Tu, you ask? Not only is she one of the top comedians and organizers in the Bay Area, she is the fierce and powerful Dirty Haiku Champion at Tourettes Without Regrets in Oakland, when you win, you get a big giant golden cock. Do you know how many Golden Cocks she’s won? 21!!! I mean I don’ t know if that number is accurate, but it’s like more than 18 at least. She’s fearless, and takes no prisoners. So I will mostly likely lose, but I will go down fighting. Or crying. Also performing are other amazing storytellers, that are going to wow you! Come check out this amazing show and hang out at the legendary Elbo Room before they tear it down, because San Francisco.

GET YOUR TICKETS NOW! 

I’ll hug you like an Eggnog Latte kissing the back of your throat, or come see this show.

The Tusk published a thing I wrote, yay!

Ellen Ripley and My Mother

This a story I wrote for the show called “Scene Missing” we were supposed to write about Sigourney Weaver characters and I jumped up and down stomped my feed until they let me write about Aliens, more specifically Ellen Ripley, who is my all time favorite Sci Fi character like ever.

I read the story for that show, and then I read it again at Literary Pop, now The Tusk has decided to publish it. Super grateful to Maggie Tokuda-Hall for putting up on the interwebs. Check it out if you guys have a sec.

MORE DETAILS TBA!!
Fierce drag queens dance off the Google buses of San Francisco. Black and Asian communities join forces in the struggle for racial justice, instigated by the LA Riots, Rodney King’s beating, and Tian Sheng Yu’s death in Oakland. A Two-spirit artist journeys in gender to find home within the self. Black Lives Matter, stretching now and into infinity with Afrofuturism. Home is displacement, a transtastic Hà Nội music video/ visual poem on the 40th anniversary of the Việt Nam War. For a Chican@ transgender teen in LA, what is home but a haunting? In Vietnamese, the word “nước” means water, country, nation, and homeland. To ask “nước nào?” is to ask, “Where is your country? Where is your home?”

Mission of Queer Rebels: Founded in late 2008 by artists KB Boyce and Celeste Chan, Queer Rebels showcases queer/trans artists of color, connects generations, and honors our histories with art for the future.

Nationally acclaimed poet and spoken-word artist Yosimar Reyes expands his repertoire to include a full-length solo performance. Prieto is an autobiographical one-man show that follows Yosimar’s journey growing up queer and undocumented in the hoods of Eastside San Jose. While his grandmother and grandfather recycle bottles and cans to pay for the rent, the boys on his block constantly tease him for acting like a girl. As a young boy, Yosimar struggles to understand and wrap his head around manhood, until he wraps his mouth around it.
