D.C.


DC is supposedly the country’s #1 gay mecca, yet 4 gay bars closed in the city in the last year alone. Wondering what’s going on? Me too.

I wrote about it for the Washington City Paper and their annual gay-themed issue (banner above). Read the full article here.

Hey, that’s me, apparently! More details on my reading this coming Sunday here.

It’s an honor to read at SPARKLE, DC’s own queer-themed open mic, hosted at DC’s own and beloved Busboys and Poets. The event is an IGNITION prelude to Capturing Fire, DC’s own queer spoken word summit and slam. So much local awesomeness!

I’ll be at Bloombars in Columbia Heights this Sunday from 3-5pm, as part of the PERFORMETRY series, doing my first reading since I moved back to DC about a year ago! I’ll be reading an excerpt from a humorous essay about Los Angeles and food.
