Queer Arts Festival Edition June 26th! Part 2

June 26th at 8pm we’ll be going to the Garage’s new location at 715 Bryant Ave. This show is going to be hella Queer! Tickets are $12 at the Door.

We’ll slowly be be publishing the names in our line up in the days leading up to the show! In our last post we met the lovely stand-up comedian Natasha Muse!

This time allow me to introduce you to:

Maisha Z Johnson

Maisha Z. Johnson is a writer, an activist, and a troublemaker. As a queer black woman of Trinidadian descent, she has never been able to stick to the status quo. Instead, she spends time writing about the view from the outside in by lifting up the voices of those who are often silenced. She spends her days working at Community United Against Violence (CUAV), developing transformative approaches to healing and organizing LGBTQ communities to end the violence they face. She spends her nights making trouble on the page, exploring the relationship between writing and social change, which she chronicles on her blog, Inkblot. Maisha is earning an MFA in poetry at Pacific University, and she’s been a featured reader at Bay Area events including Harlem’s Poetic Rebellion, The Color of My Spirit and New Poetry Mission. She’s thrilled to bring her strange, honest, untamed poems back to That’s What She Said!
