Featured Readers Shar Rednour & Jackie Strano

Adding to the mixing pot of spoken word in the city is a new open mic night at the SF LGBT Community Center. Proto feminist and genderqueer in scope, the night aims to combine the raunchy enthusiasm of the Hole in the Wall, the warmth and community of Ashkenaz, the unapologetic queer of the Bearded Lady, the radical politics of Café Macondo and the sweet rhythms of El Rio to create a space for spoken word, poetry and performance that is multi cultural, multi gendered, completely inclusive and dynamic.

The new QUEER OPEN MIC starts on Friday August 13th, and will happen on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of every month. The event is held at the THREE DOLLAR BILL CAFÉ on the first floor of the SF LGBT COMMUNITY CENTER at 1800 Market @ Octavia in SF. Open Mic sign up begins at 7:30, readings start at 8pm. $1-5 donations benefit the Femina Potens (http://www.feminapotens.com) and The Center (http://www.sfcenter.org) in an effort to encourage more queer radical art in our community.

No one turned away for lack of funds.

There will be prizes for all readers and a special drawing for one lucky audience member!
