Sideshow Kicks Off Tomorrow!

April 12, 2010 1 comment

The very first SIDESHOW Queer Literary Carnival kicks off tomorrow, April 13th, at The Phoenix bar on 13th & A in the East Village, Doors at 7pm, reading starts at 8pm sharp. Reading tomorrow will be Kate Bornstein, Sam J. Miller, Kathleen Warnock, and Seth Clark Silberman aka PhDJ.

And … will you be there?

I wrote up a piece about where Sideshow came from, the planning with my co-host and co-producer, Cheryl B., and other queer literary reading series in New York City over on my own site, Sugarbutch Chronicles. Here’s an excerpt:

New York City: home to some of the best performance art, spoken word, poetry, and literary culture in the world. Also home of the freaks, the queers, the outlaws, the weirdos, who have all sought refuge from their narrow-minded little towns across America—across North America!—by congealing at the big cities on the fringes of the country.

It makes sense that thus, this little town of mine houses some amazing queer literary reading series, though few of them are explicitly queer—rather they are run by queers and promote queer voices and perspectives. Vittoria Repetto runs the Women/Trans Poetry Jam & Open Mic at BluestockingsRachel Kramer Bussel runs In The Flesh erotica reading series at Happy EndingAudacia Rayco-hosts Sex Worker Literati at Happy Ending with David Henry Sterry,Kathleen Warnock runs Drunken! Careening! Writers! at KGB Bar, Charlie Vasquez runs Panic! at Nowhere bar, Shelly Mars runs the Bulldyke Chronicles at Dixon Place, Kelli Dunham and Gene Murphy run Queer Memoir at Collect Pond in Brooklyn. And that’s just off the top of my head.

Why does New York City need yet another literary and queer reading series?

… Read the whole thing over on Sugarbutch Chronicles: Come One, Come All to SIDESHOW

The theme is SECRETS so I’ll probably have something sultry and provocative to share. Really looking forward to this kickoff, and to all the great readers. See you there!
