MIAMI BOOK FAIR, READING QUEER & OLYMPIA THEATER PRESENT: IN THE LOBBY LOUNGE...PARIS IS STILL BURNING


Start on : November 15, 2017 6:30 PM Wednesday
End on : November 15, 2017 9:30 PM Wednesday

Event Details

Inspired by the legendary documentary film Paris is Burning and the queer counterculture it documents, Paris is Still Burning, showcases some of the most prominent contemporary queer poets of color whose work reveals and explores various forms of social, racial, and economic injustice: t’ai freedom ford, Yrsa Daley-Ward, Chen Chen and sam sax. The reading will be followed by a mini “ball”— a mix between a drag pageant and a queer performance competition — featuring members of South Florida’s own ballroom scene competing in four different categories: runway, vogue, arms control and best dressed. This last category will be open for the entire audience to participate. Each category winner will receive a cash prize!!!

**Paris Is Still Burning was originally produced by Patricia Smith at AWP 2015, Minneapolis.

Doors will open at 6pm and the action starts at 6:30pm. Cocktails available at the cash bar. Attendees are invited to enjoy a guided tour of the historic Olympia Theater during intermission.

This is a FREE event, open to the public.

. . . and don't miss In the Lobby Lounge . . . WORDS! on first Wednesdays and In the Lobby Lounge . . . JAZZ! on second Wednesdays.

Presented by the Olympia Theater, Miami Book Fair & Reading Queer

Sponsored by the Miami Downtown Development Authority, Culture Builds Florida, Miami- Dade County and Miami Sports and Exhibition Authority.
