The Revival: Queer Women Poetry

On Thursday, November 7th, sold out tour, THE REVIVAL will step out of the living room for a night of music and storytelling with Cave Canem fellow, Angel Nafis, queer pop sensation, Be Steadwell, and New York City premiere of D.C.-based powerhouse duo, BOOMscat!

The literary arts organization aims to raise $15,000 to complete their documentary film, Women and The Word. And the group of dedicated queer women are more than halfway there. After a sold out tour in 2012, This year, audiences can expect women, wine and more than just words as this time they get a chance to tell their own story.

“Raising the money is easy,” says, REVIVAL founder, Jade Foster. “What this fundraiser, and campaign is really saying is that queer women are interested in more cruises, parties and politics. It’s marking our place in the arts. We’re taking poetry out of the hands of the powers that be, and sharing it with, the people.”

Testimony will be held Thursday, November 7th, 2013 at Cup Center 1071 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn, NY. Show starts at 7:30pm.

Advanced tickets are available at

Brought to audiences from supporters: Lambda Literary Foundation,, bklyn boihood and a tremendous host committee.
