Please join WMN – a lesbian publication of art and poetry for the virtual launch of their third issue Taking Space. This issue features work by dykes who identify as disabled and/or are living with a physical, sensory, cognitive, or chronic illness.
WMN believes in representing sectors of the lesbian community that are not always given the visibility they deserve. WMN wants to support disabled artists and writers as the discourse around disabilities, and representation is lacking particularly within the art world and the lesbian community. Taking space is guest-edited by Zee Monteiro, who is based in London, UK, who is a community organizer, blogger, poet & activist who identifies as neurodivergent.
Suggested donation $5 to benefit the Bureau and the readers. All are welcome to join, with or without a donation. You can make a donation when you register.
Registration on Eventbrite required:
– There will be live automated captions for the reading
– The launch and presentations will be in English
– The event will be recorded and available on the Bureau’s YouTube page as well as on the WMN website with a written transcription.
Poetry readings and artist presentations by Taking Space contributors: Aurora Berger, Marlena Chertock, Carson Wolfe, Marisol Brady, Nitika Raj, and Jenna Rowell.
This event is made possible in part by the Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
