OPEN MIC @ Three Dollar Bill Cafe is here again – flushed and flirty from the enthusiastic support of writers, singers, performers and audiences that are packing the joint every second and fourth Fridays of the month!

On October 8th we will feature the witty words of Erin O’Briant. Erin O'Briant is a San Francisco writer and spoken word performer. She is the co-host and founder of the popular Oral Fixation open mic and is writing her first novel, Glitter Girls. Currently a MFA student in creative writing, she works as a freelance marketing writer and journalist.

As always, there will be prizes for every reader and a free raffle for one lucky audience member.

Why a Queer Open Mic on a Friday night?
Because the queers will not be silenced, because sharing art is a revolutionary act, because coming together to kick some serious literary a** is unbelievably fun, because your voice and your experience is unique and needs to be heard, for these reasons and more come on over to a friendly and fabulous open mic for the entire queer community! Let's create a space for spoken word, poetry and performance that is multi cultural, multi gendered, completely inclusive and dynamic.

Scheduled upcoming featured readers include: Miriam Sachs-Martin & Sherilyn Connelly (10/22); Kirk Read (11/12); Michelle Tea (12/10); Wendy-O-Matik (1/14)

QUEER OPEN MIC happens on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of every month at the THREE DOLLAR BILL CAFÉ on the first floor of the SF LGBT COMMUNITY CENTER at 1800 Market @ Octavia in SF and is hosted by Cindy M. Emch.

Open Mic sign up begins at 7:30, readings start at 8pm. $1-5 donations benefit the performers and The Center ( in an effort to encourage more queer art in our community. No one turned away for lack of funds. (Open mic readers get 5 minutes, one poem or 3 pages of prose, whichever fits the material best)
