at Bureau of General Services-Queer Division
27 Orchard Street, NYC
Join us for an evening of poetry readings by contributors from the new anthology Troubling the Line: Trans and Genderqueer Poetry and Poetics!
The first-ever collection of poetry by trans and genderqueer writers.
The first of its kind, Troubling the Line: Trans and Genderqueer Poetry and Poetics, gathers together a diverse range of 55 poets with varying aesthetics and backgrounds. In addition to generous samples of poetry by each trans writer, the book also includes “poetics statements”—reflections by each poet that provide context for their work covering a range of issues from identification and embodiment to language and activism.
Readers include: Aimee Herman, Ariel Goldberg, EC Crandall, Eileen Myles, Ely Shipley, Jaime Shearn Coan, Jake Pam Dick, Joy Ladin, and Kit Yan. Hosted by co-editor Tim Trace Peterson
