For the

Queer and Queer Friendly Sexy Nerds: 

The Lovely JDX!

The Lovely JDX!

This Friday, you will find me at Culture Fuck, a radical, accepting, culture fucking space.  Come early and sign up to read at the open mic. I will admit it. I am a bit of a groupie. I resisted for a while because I am the type of person that doesn’t read best sellers because they are popular, though this makes me sound a bit like a hipster (and I am currently wearing tight jeans), but Annah and JDX  are living their messages.  They are inspiring community around them wherever they go, and hell I am an admirer. I am inspired and I am going to follow them both around and document them. Come see for yourself the powerful love, art, and entertainment that will happen tonight at Culture Fuck’s NerdSexLiberation!  Show and Tell Concept Shop at 1427 Broadway.

Sister Spit  has an impressive line-up starting at 8:00 PM at Rock Paper Scissors Collective.

Host Michelle Tea, who co-founded Sister Spit with Sini Anderson in the 90’s, was also a part of the first Sister Spit national tour. Michelle continues to support and showcase emerging queer voices. Tonight’s reading features Chinaka Hodge, Rhiannon Argo, Virgie Tovar, Dia Felix, Beth Lisick, Jerry Lee Abram, and special guests Raquel Gutiérrez and Daniel Levesque.
