January 23: Baruch!! (for reals)

Okay, we swear we’re not making this up.  Baruch will indeed be performing! Live! At Queer Open Mic! January 23rd! For freaking reals! Of course, you really shouldn’t just take our word for it on this one — you’re just gonna have to show up and see the magic for yourselves.


About Baruch

Baruch Porras-Hernandez was born in Toluca, Mexico and moved to California with his family when he was 7 years old. He grew up in Albany in the East Bay and started writing poetry his freshman year of highschool. Later at Sonoma State University he began performing poetry at local open mics. He graduated with a Theater Arts Degree with a concentration in Acting in 2004 and moved to the Bay Area to work in Theater. He has been the Program Associate for the Young California Writers Project at the Magic Theater in San Francisco for the past five years and has worked as an Actor with several theater companies in the bay area including Berkeley Rep, CalShakes, ShotGun Players, FoolsFURY, Aurora Theater Company and Word for Word. He is also an Artist and has shown his work in cafes throught the Bay Area. He performs regularly at The Berkeley Poetry Slam and has been a huge fan of San Francisco Queer Open Mic since he first walked by the 3DollarBill Cafe, saw the folks through the window and decided to sign up.

(Psst! Inside scoop!  He’s also featuring the week before — Jan 14th — at the Berkeley Slam, so if you’re dying of excitement and NEED a sneak peek, that’s where you can find it.)

Bring your latest draft of raw, sexy, and under-five-minutes queer joy, and join Baruch and the rest of the beautiful people at Modern Times on the 23rd.
