OUTspoken Queer Open Mic

  • Fox Egg Gallery 3730 Chicago Avenue Minneapolis, MN, 55407 United States (map)

OUTspoken will be taking place in late March this month. After, we will be going back to our normal 2nd Wednesday of the month. Join us for a night of amazing queer art. We are a braver safer space community. We value art that challenges in an environment that strives to be welcoming to all. Performers have 7 minutes to do whatever they want. 

This month we have up-and-coming poet, author and disability advocate, Adina Burke. 

Door at 6:30pm. Show at 7:30pm. $5-10

BIRD’S EYE, a poetic journey written by Adina K. Burke in 2015, is now available through by hardcopy or as an e-book. Like a good tater tot hot dish, some things in life are worth waiting for. This book was a two-and-a-half-year endeavor and explores a cocktail of “-isms” this author lives with, breathes and addresses daily. Her recipe calls for feminism, confronting ableism and antisemitism and is topped with the simple and complex, never-ending process of identity discovering. Burke’s unique experience and artistic expressions offers a glimpse into the heart of the modern human experience. BIRD’S EYE may now be purchased via courier through Boneshaker Books of Minneapolis or in Quimby’s and Uncharted Books of Chicago, Illinois.

About Adina
Adina K. Burke is a twenty-something self-described “crippled punk” who resides with her two cats in Minneapolis. Aside from driving herself mad in her love/hate relationship with poetry. She also writes columns for EasyStand, a company that helps design assistive devices for those in wheelchairs which continues the dialogue between the abled and disabled community. Burke is constantly working toward expanding her creative horizons and her equally creative shoe collection.
