Art - at its best - can serve as a healing refuge for the free expressions of its creator, for unfettered political commentary on subjects ranging from interpersonal relationships to gender identity and expression to oppression and poverty to election politics. Gunner Scott, founder of ButchDykeBoy.com, chats with us about GenderCrash, a venue he created for the artistic expressions of queer and transgender/genderqueer folks in the Boston area. Also joining us to read and discuss some of their own work are three of the writers published in "Pinned Down by Pronouns": Alicia Goranson, Nathan Levitt, and Flynn May.
GenderCrash is a monthly open mic in the Boston area (at Spontaneous Celebrations in Jamaica Plain) for poets/spoken wordsters/literary geeks/journal writers/queers/transgender/gender queers.
Alicia Goranson writes about finding strength in alienation; the power of the child left behind. She is a Gendercrash regular and occasionally reads around town.
Nathan Levitt is a pansexual, jewish, trans, genderqueer activist who organizes and leads workshops and trainings on queer activism, dismantling oppressions, youth empowerment and leadership, transgender/genderqueer identities, and working towards social change.
Flynn May is a multi racial, radical performance poet and community activist. Flynn would rather be known "by adjectives and for achievements than prefab pronouns".
