BESPOKE SPRING ’19 EDITION: APRIL IS THE COOLEST MONTH!
April 23, 7:00 pm-9:00 pm
BESPOKE: It’s April! The cruelest month? Make that the COOLEST month! Join us for the resurrection of our most garish garments and frighteningly fashionable attire as Tuesday April 23 the Bureau features Jericho Brown, Mariah MacCarthy, and Dima Mikhayel Mattaat Bespoke, a bimonthly queer series where featured readers dress fun, fancy, or flirtatious. This sinfully sartorial series presents fashionable femmes, dapper dykes, chic twinks, trendy trans* folk, & frothy FTMs. Featured writers are encouraged to suit up or dress down: readers’ choice.
Open mic readers (2 minutes each): whose name shall be drawn from the rainbow top hat this month? General attendees: which incredible edibles from Dylan’s Candy Bar will find their way to the insatiate maws of our deviant demimonde?
Your Bespoke hosts are Christina Quintana “CQ” (writer/ playwright/ dyke about town), Tim Murphy (longtime LGBTQ journalist, activist and author of the novels Christodora and Correspondents) and Jerome Ellison Murphy (poet, critic and NYU Creative Writing Program administrator). This twinkling trio invites you to turn out in your Tuesday best (dressing up is welcome & encouraged, not mandatory) every other month for drinks and chat before & after our reading.
Suggested donation of $10 to benefit the Bureau. No one turned away for lack of funds.
