This reading at Lambda Litfest will celebrate Reading Queer: Poetry in a Time of Chaos (http://www.itascabooks.com/reading-queer.html) edited by Neil de la Flor and Maureen Seaton, a collection of the most subversive, gritty, moving, and courageous writing to come out of the U.S. queer community in recent political times. Reading Queer: Poetry in a Time of Chaosbrings the LGBTQI community together in the spirit and solidarity of poetry at its finest and fiercest. “It is our gift to all conscious citizens. With love.” (Seaton & de la Flor). Co-organizers (and emcees) of the event are Ching-In Chen and Kevin Simmonds, who are both contributors to the anthology. Readers include: Cathleen Chambless, L Lamar Wilson, Caridad Moro-Gronlier and TC Tolbert.
