Queer Prom 2013


The prolific Izzy Rode ’14 tellz uz:

You, dear, deserve a night of reclamation.
A break from the hetero social life.
A night of demolishing those boxes society keeps trying to throw you
A night of partying among friends.

The rounds will go like this:

  • 1st round: 1 minute poem 
  • 2nd round: 30 second poem 
  • 3rd round: 15 second poem (Haikus Are Totes Kosher For Pesach) 

But that’s not all. The incredibly talented and prolific Cam Awkward-Rich ’11 and Sam Sax, also known as the Gay Pride Poetry Tour, will be featuring with an earth-shatteringly hilarious, devastating, and mindblowing set of poems that are sure to knock your socks off (to say the least).
