About Sister Outsider Poetry:
"Dominique Christina and Denice Frohman are Sister Outsider. This award-winning duo represents some of the top performance poets in the world. Their collaboration marks the first time two Women of the World Poetry Slam Champions have paired up. Over the last two years, their national tour has been widely successful, bringing them to over 90 universities, colleges, conferences, schools and community spaces across the country.
Through spoken word they connect deeply personal stories to a diverse range of social and political issues, particularly around race, gender and sexuality, and how those tie into being an "other." More specifically, poems focus on Latin@, black, and multicultural identities, homophobia, surviving sexual assault, reclaiming women's bodies, immigration, language, educational inequalities, coming of age, and more. They write their "otherness" into the center and encourage others, particularly those in marginalized communities, to do the same. Inspired by the life and work of Audre Lorde, these two artists and educators, come together under one vision."
About Kina Wolfenstein:
"Kina Wolfenstein is a poet from Portland, Oregon. She's been writing since she learned how to spell, and Slamming since 2012. She is queer, glittery, and wishes she was a dolphin. When she's not trying to figure out how to turn her existential angst into cool art, you can usually find her playing with her two rats, Goblin and Juni. She's passionate about creepy deep sea creatures, feminism, fairies and thai food."
Hosted by T*REX (Trans* Resources and Education Xtravaganza) as a part of Queer Week.
