Join Foglifter and The Rumpus for an offsite event celebrating the Queer Syllabus! The Queer Syllabus is an act of community and education, but it’s also an act of resistance: When we identify our roots and point to the work that shaped us as writers and as people, we demonstrate that our stories are timeless, essential, and important—and so are we.
Featuring readings from Chen Chen, Melissa Febos, Claire Rudy Foster, T Kira Madden, Alicia Mountain, and Dennis Norris II! Emceed by Baruch Porras-Hernandez!
Bring a new or used copy of your favorite queer book for our gay book swap!

Viewfinding is a public sculpture that will be installed in Riverside Park from August of 2018-August of 2019. The piece consists of a series of tall translucent color gradient panels that will align with the summer sunset over the Hudson River. Text from queer poets activates the piece. My work, among others, is engraved on clear plexiglass and installed on a bench built into the sculpture.
Join us for a reading and reception in Riverside Park!
Free public programming promoting queer health and wellness will accompany the installation, kicked off by a queer poetry reading. Join us Saturday, September 22nd at 2pm for an opening picnic and readings by participating poets.
Location: enter Riverside Park at the west end of 70th Street in Manhattan, head south along the water. Viewfinding will be installed on the lawn at approximately 67th street.
