There is validity wherever we are at!
Love goes beyond just chosen family and romantic love!
There is intention in the love and relationships that we create for ourselves!

WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE OPEN MIC??
read a poem, perform a spoken word piece, tell us a story, read a short story or share a piece of writing you are working on!! Performances should be a MAX of 5 minutes.
NOTE: We encourage people who know that they are interested in performing to send their pieces to us two weeks ahead of time. This is so that ASL interpreters can adequately prepare, especially for folks who will be doing any kind of slam poetry or singing. However, we will also have a number of open spots available for people who decide to participate in the open mic the night of, but your piece may not be able to have interpretation. We are also encouraging deaf and hard of hearing people to submit pieces and participate!
If you interested in signing up in advance, please email the Toronto Queer Zine Fair at < torontoqueerzinefair@gmail
