This summer I have been privileged to have the opportunity to partner with Queers For Economic Justice to facilitate a writing intensive for folks connected with their shelter program. We have been gathering every Wednesday to write and last night was the community reading at QEJ to celebrate the power of the stories that have been penned this summer.
Tremendous thanks to Amber Hollibaugh and Jay Toole of QEJ, all the Queers For Economic Justice volunteers for making the event happen, a special thanks to everyone who came out to the event, and ESPECIALLY each and every one of the writers who shared some of the most raw and heartfelt work. I am so honored to have been able to work with each of you this summer.
This is just the beginning of arts programming at QEJ, and I will have a more indepth blog post going up very very soon, but I wanted to share the video recording of the event for everyone who wasn’t able to be here with us:
