Poet Kit Yan to slam Saturday's MasQueerAde Ball — but that's a good thing

Posted on 04 Feb 2010 at 11:01am

Yesterday I posted video of Vidur Kapur’s stand-up as a preview for this Saturday’s festivities at Creating Change’s MasQueerAde Ball. Along with Kapur, headlining for the night will be trans slam poet Kit Yan.

Yan isn’t just spoken word. His MySpace page classifies him as indie, folk rock and comedy. He was even an OutMusician of the Year nominee, so clearly Yan is quite versatile. But I’d say his slam talent looks pretty amazing. He rocks it here in his piece “Third Gender” from the Good Asian Drivers tour.

According to the Creating Change program, Yan will also premiere OUTMedia’s national video contest, “Be Queer, Buy Queer!” where college students can submit original video using that theme.

The MasQueerAde Ball happens Feb. 6 at 8 p.m. in the Dallas Sheraton ballroom. Check here for deets.
