Celebrating the work of gay Black writers

a reading of works by gay Black men from the 1980s and '90s

Sunday, April 14, 2pm
(doors opening 1:30pm)
For “in the life,” artist and writer Gregg Bordowitz will host readings from the literary work of gay, male, African American poets and writers, who chronicled sexuality, illness, and death during the height of the AIDS crisis in the 1980s and ’90s. Many of the writers are now dead, and their works have been collected in anthologies, such as "in the life", edited by Joseph Beam. Bordowitz will be joined by a diverse group of readers including former Q/A/M mentor Pamela Sneed, to pay tribute to artists such as Donald Woods, Essex Hemphill, Marlon Riggs and many more.
