Unapologetic Transformation 

Wednesday, Dec 11 2013

Running since 2004, the Queer Open Mic has long been an important place for traditionally underrepresented voices to not only express themselves comfortably, but also to experiment with ways to do so. Accordingly, what was once a literary series has opened up to music, comedy, and performance art. Held every fourth Friday, the series presents one featured performer and an open mic. This month's feature is the internationally-touring powerhouse activist for art-as-transformation Sonya Renee Taylor, who founded the movement The Body is Not an Apology and authored the book A Little Truth on Your Shirt. Taylor's performances are emotional calls to arms; it's almost the norm for someone in the audience to either start crying or testify that what they just witnessed was one of the most moving experiences of their life.
