Nepantla Second Issue Release

Fri., Aug. 28, 7 p.m.
Nepantla Second Issue Release
Nepantla: A Journal Dedicated to Queer Poets of Color aims to create intentional space for QPOC narratives and art in America, celebrating multiplicity and continual reinvention. It will also celebrate the release of its second issue on Friday, August 28 at Berkeley City College (2050 Center St.) with a reading co-presented by ZYZZYVA, featuring four of its associated poets. Among them are Jewelle Gomez, the author of seven books, including the Black lesbian vampire novel The Gilda Stories, and founding board member of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation; Yosimar Reyes, a gay, Mexican-born poet and activist whose work often addresses immigration issues; Arisa White, the author of the full-length poetry collections Hurrah’s Nest and A Penny Saved; and Marvin K. White, the author of four collections of poetry, board member of Fire & Ink, a national Black LGBT writer’s organization, and former member of the acclaimed Black gay theater group Pomo Afro Homos. Clearly, the lineup is glowing, and one too (unfortunately) rare to pass up. Free
