Experiments & Disorders @ Dixon Place, NYC

Writer and activist Elizabeth Koke and I shared the bill for the  9/17 Experiments & Disorders at Dixon Place. Read cuts from the following works-in-progress, and a cut from “Raunch Daddy,” the second story in the Gertrude Press chapbook Worker Names.

  • I Speak for my Difference, a new English translation of the poem Manifesto/Hablo Por Mi Diferencia by Pedro Lemebel, a queer Chilean writer and activist who resisted oppression, authoritarian rule, and the culture of machismo. 
  • Frankie Knuckles Belongs, a braided essay about the National Museum of African-American History & Culture and the late deejay Frankie Knuckles, his art, and how his sound advanced the vision of the gay liberation movement.
