“Last year’s tour was awesome, a really tremendous experience. It was really interactive—the audience was just as much a part of the stage as we were. It was a give and take process that allowed for something different to happen. I think lives were definitely changed,” says new author of Black Marks on White Paper, LOVE the poet.
With presenting sponsors, The Rainbow Collective and The Center for Gay and Lesbian Studies, each night of the tour features food, music, and a local poet:
