The second-ever Moonlighting, Boston Poetry Slam’s new monthly LGBTQ reading, was a success, thanks to a high caliber open-mic and the formidable presence of nationally renowned poet Tatyana Brown. Those in attendance were wowed by never-before-seen work as well as familiar hits as Brown wielded a rare range of emotion, blending poignancy, humor, and uncommonly distilled confession to the stage. Now heading into its third month, Moonlighting is proving to be a top-notch safe space for the LGBTQ community and their allies to enjoy and relate to one another through poetry, before sitting back and experiencing some of the art’s most talented performers!
Moonlighting takes place on the first Thursday of every month at Fazenda Coffee Roasters, 3710 Washington St. in the Jamaica Plain area of Boston. An open mic begins at approximately 7:00 p.m. and the headliner follows the open mic. The show is all-ages with a suggested $3 donation. The next Moonlighting show will take place on Thursday, June 6, featuring Casey Rocheteau.
