Zami: A Circle of LGBTQ Cultural Performances and Discussions

zamiZami: A Circle of LGBTQ Cultural Performances & Discussions at Busboys and Poets is named after the work of Audre Lorde, and seeks to honor her legacy as a fearless black, lesbian poet, author and educator. The gender and sexuality series seeks to energize community discourse regarding the intersections of sexuality, gender, race and human rights by bringing together artists, scholars, and community members to talk about their work as people committed to LGBTQ and feminist values and action.

The inaugural feature performer for this event will be Staceyann Chin.  Staceyann is the author of the memoir “The Other Side of Paradise” and a proud Jamaican national. Her voice was featured on “The Oprah  Show,” where she spoke candidly about her experiences of growing up on  the island and the dire consequences of her coming out there.
