In celebration of NYC Pride, Papercut Press presents an evening of readings, performances, and visual art by some of our favorite queer artists and authors. The event will be moderated by Papercut author m. craig.

Rami Shamir is the author of TRAIN TO POKIPSE and the co-founding editor of Underground Editions. A former Zuccotti Park Occupier with Occupy Wall Street, Shamir’s writings have appeared in Adbuster’sEvergreen Review, and The Brooklyn Rail. TRAIN TO POKIPSE was the last editorial project for legendary publisher Barney Rosset, who said “TRAIN TO POKIPSE is a Catcher in the Rye for the new century, and Rami Shamir is an authentic literary voice for a new lost generation.” Shamir has just concluded a thirty-city, indie-books distro tour with fellow indie author m. craig. He is a recipient of the 2013 Acker Award for fiction.
