Incite: Queer Writers Read

  • Literary Arts 925 Southwest Washington Street Portland, OR, 97205 United States (map)

Portland Chapter members RSVP here.

From The Literary Arts Website:

Announcing a new curated reading series for Queer writers hosted by Kate Carroll de Gutes and Kate Gray.

INCITE. Because of queer stories. Because of these times. Because.

Every other month on the first Tuesday, 4-5 Queer writers will read work on a theme. No surprise, this month’s theme is resistance. At each reading, we’ll distribute cards with pre-populated questions to foster audience discussion. We’ll use 15 minutes or so at the end to moderate a talk-about. Our hope is to create conversation, connection, and greater understanding both within the Queer community and with other communities.

No cost. Donations accepted for Outside In, a program that helps homeless and marginalized youth, a disproportionate number of whom are queer.

March readers: Domi Shoemaker Kelly Jeske David Skilton Julianna Gonzalez Stephanie Glazier

I highly suggest that all members (and their guests) attend this free event! This is a great opportunity to not only hear these great stories, but also ask questions and help shed some light on the issues our community faces. Who knows, maybe in the future we'll have some of our own amBi members share their stories in a future event. :)
