Paris is Still Burning
Wednesday, November 15, 2017 @ 6:00 pm
174 East Flagler Street, Miami, FL 33132 United States
In the Lobby Lounge…Miami Book Fair & Reading Queer
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: sam sax, t’ai freedom ford, Yrsa Daley-Ward, and Chen Chen. 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.
Special thank you to our programming partner, Reading Queer, and to Paris is Still Burning producing partner, The Olympia Theater, Downtown Miami’s Historic Performing Arts Center.
