Queer literary events
When I was in Queer Nation, we used to call June “hell month” because there was so much going on, it was almost oppressive. And it’s like that every year. Among the many events in the Queer Arts Festival in the next little while:
Transgender writer Julia Serrano reads at 7:00 pm tommorrow, Thursday, at A Different Light, 489 Castro St., from her book Whipping Girl: A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity.
On Saturday, Writers With Drinks features Judy Budnitz, author of Nice Big American Baby and If I’ve Told You Once; Clifford Chase, author of Winkie; Sesshu Foster, author of Atomik Aztex; Anthony McCann, poet and author of Moongarden; and Kyle Machulis. As always, MC’d by the very funny and statuesque Charlie Anders. 7:30 pm at the Make Out Room, 3225 22nd St. btw. Mission & Valencia.
Ali Liebegott, Justin Chin, Kirk Read, Marcus Ewert and Miranda Mellis will read at Michelle Tea’s RADAR, 6:00 pm on June 13th at the San Francisco Main Library’s Koret Auditorium (new room!)
