Sister Spit — the ensemble of lesbian, transgender and queer writers, poets and performance artists — has announced the dates for its 2017 West Coast tour.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the tour will make stops in, among other places, West Hollywood on March 10 at the West Hollywood Public Library, Long Beach on March 11 at Art Exchange and Westchester on March 14 at Loyola Marymount University, according to a press statement last week.
Sister Spit was founded by award-winning author Michelle Tea in the 1990s. The tour was relaunched in 2007 with a revolving roster of established and emerging LGBTQ and allied authors, poets, and mixed media artists. The tour is produced by the Bay Area non-profit organization, Radar Productions.
Sister Spit has made a name for itself by spotlighting provocative, irreverent, and political artists whose work defies and subverts conventional notions of sex, gender, sexuality, race, size, class and feminism. Their work also views these issues with a critical, intersectional and humorous lens.
