Keeping Things Queer in the East Village

by Charlie Vázquez

Queer New York, I miss you! But I haven't wandered astray for any other reason than work and event overload. Last week we hosted an event at the Phoenix for the Cuban writer and drag queen Roxy la Rusa. Below is a clip from that night of San Juan, Puerto Rico's one-and-only Lola von Miramar paying homage to Cuba, Puerto Rico, and to the Puerto Rican poet lost to AIDS, Manuel Ramos Otero.

If you need something to do tonight, we'll be at Nowhere (322 E 14th St) for HISPANIC PRIDE PANIC!, where we'll be honoring two NYC queer poets of greatness, Pamela Sneed and Robert Vazquez-Pacheco (plus other guests). That starts at 7:30...smooches.

Enjoy the video!
