One of the most incredible experiences I’ve had as a facilitator came this summer when I had the privilege of partnering with Queers For Economic Justice to facilitate a summer writing intensive for folks involved in the Shelter Program. The stories that came out of that workshop were absolutely incredible, and without a doubt some of the most powerful work I’ve ever witnessed. There was a community reading at QEJ right after the workshop ended – you can read my reactions to that here.
I’m thrilled to announce the writers from the summer writing intensive will be reading their work next week as part of a partnership with Dixon Place theater and the monthly Queer Text reading series!
Queer Text at Dixon Place presents Amber Hollibaugh of Queers for Economic Justice introducing Sassafras Lowrey and writers from her ‘Queer Shelter Project Stories Workshop’ as they bring their everyday experiences of queerness, homelessness, survival, and desire to the page, and now, to the stage.
Scheduled readers include Jay Toole, Clio, Dinick, and Gykyira. Event curated by Nicholas Boggs.
Doors at 7, reading at 7:30. $8 cash only (a portion of each ticket purchase is donated to Queers for Economic Justice).
Dixon Place is located on the Lower East Side at 161A Chrystie Street between Rivington and Delancey
