Welcome back, Moonlighting! This past Sunday, Ilyus Evander and Myles Taylor relaunched our monthly queer open mic and reading series, which was a wild success with a full open mic and packed room. The Democracy Center in Harvard Square housed a cozy group of LGBTQIA+ performers of various genres and experiences. Following the open was a feature from the newly-formed first-ever Boston Poetry Slam FEMS Team, comprised of adored regular Yehya Barakat, 2019 BPS team member Joshua Elbaum, 2017 BPS team member Myles Taylor, and workshop rockstar Brittany Frederick. Each poet did a couple of tender & mostly new poems, ready to be worked for the tournament in late October.
Next month’s show will be posted soon! Please follow Moonlighting on Facebook to stay updated on dates, features, and whatever spooky things may be in store for our Halloween-adjacent bookings.
