ANDRE LE MONT WILSON:Born in Los Angeles to parents who were poets, Andre Le Mont Wilson moved to the Bay Area where he told epic stories split into five minute segments over the course several months at the Queer Open Mic. This year, the Marin Poetry Center published an excerpt of one of these serialized stories in “Changing Harm to Harmony,” an anthology of poetry and letters on bullying. Proceeds benefited the Spectrum LGBT Center. Locally, he performed stories at The Moth StorySlam, Fireside Storytelling, and the Marsh Theater. Andre is honored to tell an entire story in one night at the Queer Open Mic.

CELESTE CHAN:Celeste Chan is a hybrid artist, writer, and organizer. She is a queer student of experimentation, schooled by DIY and immigrant parents from Malaysia and the Bronx, NY. A Hedgebrook, Lambda, and VONA alumna, her writing can be found in Ada, As/us journal, cream city review, Feminist Wire, Glitterwolf, Hyphen, and Matador. Her films have screened in MIX NYC, Entzaubert, GLITCH Glasgow, Vancouver Queer Film Festival, and beyond. Alongside KB Boyce, she co-directs Queer Rebels, a queer and trans people of color arts project. (Photo by Lydia Daniller)
