My dear friendRyka Aoki de la Cruz has asked me to run this month’s Hollywood Queer Open Mic & Workshop and I couldn’t be more delighted. We have a stellar line up of featured performers including one of my favorite LA storytellers, Jack Tangle. Also reading is Christine Beatty, author of Misery Loves Company & Not Your Average American Girl, Diviana X Ingravallo, Moe Macarow and author and journalist Jeanne Cordova. Jean Cordova’s books include Kicking the Habit, a Lesbian Nun Story, and Sexism; It’s a Nasty Affair, her work has appeared in numerous anthologies.
The venue, BHS, is humble but I have a strong affection for it: it’s where Ryka started the Trans/Giving shows (by the way if anyone wants to start organizing that show again talk to me, collectives grow and change but there hasn’t been a show in over a year!) began eight years ago. The Hollywood Queer Open Mic is a fantastic space to workshop new material and I hope you’ll join us either as a reader or a member of the audience.
