Please join us for a reading and discussion featuring three highly talented poets Chen Chen, Tobias Wray, and Rajiv Mohabir. The writers will read from their collections and discuss the state of queer poetry today, showing us how they fit within this ever-growing poetic landscape. These three poets all write with themes of masculinity, family, identity, and queerness using their distinct personal experiences to craft poignant poems that leave a lasting impact on their readers. You will not want to miss this evening of poetry!
