Maracuya Peach #2: Hard Aguacate Baby Queer Poems

HARD AGUACATE, the second installment of MARACUYÁ PEACH presented at PEN America's Lit Crawl NYC, will be a reading of work from when we were baby queer poets, crawling around in language. Readers will engage childhood, first queer feelings, and vintage poems perhaps unread or unseen for years.

This event's featured readers will be Emanuel Xavier and Cyree Jarelle Johnson!

* Event location and specific time to be announced *

Maracuyá-Peach was one of the popsicle flavors dreamed by poet Ximena Izquierdo Ugaz’s father after waking from a coma. From this imagined combination comes a juicy new poetry series created by Ximena Alejandra Izquierdo Ugaz and Danilo Machado.

Organized collaboratively in venues around Brooklyn, the series is by and for queer and trans poets of color working across media, languages, and diasporas—embracing the bilingual, the fruity, and the sticky.
