Event Type

The South is a celebration of queerness. It is home to contemporary LGBTQ+ poets like Danez Smith and Jericho Brown who have transformed the literary landscape. It is also a region marred by great pain and suffering where our governments are actively restricting our rights, access to healthcare, and demolishing our histories. As young poets, we ask ourselves how do we find our passions, our pleasure, our light, our joys of being human in the South? We are angry and outraged by the acts these states exhibit on our bodies, but through our voices, we can resist and reclaim power. This panel discussion will consist of four talented queer poets from/living in Louisiana.
