July 23: Queer Open Mic with Jen G

While the rest of the country wilts and melts under blistering heat, we here in San Francisco remain just as breezy-cool as ever. You know it, we know it – but why not get your sassy queer self out to Queer Open Mic and prove it?!

Summer’s a great time for falling in love, for reinventing oneself and changing the world, and all those things are sure to need an outlet. Aren’t you lucky we provide you with one, every month, just like clockwork?

But what if you’re shy, you say? Just too darn skittish to get up on stage and spill your poetical guts about all the crazy fabulous things that summer’s brought you this turn around the Sun? Well, take inspiration as always from our fantastic feature: this month, the fabulous Jen G will take the mic.

If she can do it, so can you!
