This reading is part of our monthly LGBTQ series, Moonlighting. Click here for more information about this recurring show.
The featured reader for April 3 is Jha D Williams.
Jha D is the founder of the “If You Can Feel It, You Can Speak It” open mic at Jamaica Plain’s Milky Way, as well as the dreamer of EN-ER-GY, an annual showcase of eclectic Boston talent. She has been writing and performing for over ten years, and her poetry has afforded her the opportunities to participate in documentaries as well as be featured at and MC various events such as the True Colors Conference and the Philadelphia Dyke March. Additionally, she has performed and conducted writing workshops at the University of Pennsylvania, Bucknell University, Northeastern University, Boston College, and UMass Boston. Her pieces are birthed from her experiences, and she therefore writes about self-love, identity evolution, sexuality and growth through emotions. She firmly believes in the power of expression and professes that “there is true art in spreading your own truths.”
This show in our monthly Thursday LGBTQ series takes place 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 and a $3 donation is requested.
