Hey folks, I know you all miss me, and I know you all miss BackFat, they will return, very very soon! But, for the past couple months I’ve been busy organizing a poetry festival that focuses on Latino Poetry and Spoken Word. Made possible by a grant from Galería de la Raza’s Regen Artist Fund, this show is a celebration of the Latino writer voice. A part of the project has been to do video interviews with all the poets, and I’m very very excited to share some of them with you. The show tonight is at Magnet, a place that is very close to my heart, not only are they a safe free clinic for gay men, they also open up their space for all types of queers, all types of organizations and communities. The show tonight is at 7:30pm, and it is free, here is their address 4122 18th Street in the Castro.
If you want a sneak peek of some of the poets, check out these videos. I can’t wait to see all of you there.
