Emanuel Xavier has posted videos of spoken word poetry/dance presentations featuring poems from his collection If Jesus Were Gay & other poems. The performances revolve around themes of gays in the military, the Santeria religion, and a gay man’s struggle with Catholicism.

The Legendary Project was staged at El Museo del Barrio on June 20, 2010 for NYC Gay Pride featuring a talented troupe of modern dancers. Choreographed by Ferdinand De Jesus (a.k.a. Freddie Xtravaganza), the event celebrated the collaborations of Nuyorican poet Emanuel Xavier and music producer El David from the album “Legendary-The Spoken Word Poetry of Emanuel Xavier.” Additional choreography by Stefan Dolbashian. This excerpt was filmed by Joe DeShano. Make up by Blue Michael. Poem from the Xavier’s poetry collection, If Jesus Were Gay & other poems, reviewed here by Rigoberto Gonzalez.
