Since we’re outie after today, I can’t be trusted to come out of a tryptophan coma to write this up later in the week. The Fahari Arts Institute will be hosting their third Queerly Speaking event this Friday. It’s becoming quite the buzz around Facebook with already a decent number of confirmed guests.
QS is a “monthly spoken word event featuring black gay poets, their allies and friends.” They are hoping for an even stronger attendance if people are back in town for the holiday. But this month, they mention a slight format change. They say for people planning to speak or share work, arrive and sign up before 9 p.m. At that time, the show starts and runs till midnight.
Queerly Speaking takes place at the Backbeat Cafe & Listening Room.
The Institute has made great strides this fall with some fantastic community events. Last week they hosted the Queer Film Series of Black Cinematheque and in October they held a discussion with lesbian artists Lovie Olivia and Billie Simone.
We can’t wait to see what’s next from these guys.
