Boston LGBT Poetry Slam

By Charlotte Robinson, April 17, 2014

There’s a night of spoken word LGBT poetry & open mic performance tonight April 17th at Club Café in Boston. Among those performing will be Sarah Pearlman reading from her book “The Lesbian Erotic: Bad Girl Persona & Other Poems” which is both a poetic memoir & travelogue, that is delightfully erotic & a humorous poetry collection that captures the sensuous detail the passion & exuberance of sex between women, the endurance of desire & the stunningly luminous landscape of Greece—suggestive of the beauty of a woman’s body. Pearlman stated, “I first began to write poetry during the summer of 1995. I had traveled to Chalki, a tiny island off the coast of Rhodes, to participate in a women’s travel group, assuming that there would be other gay women. However, it didn’t take long to discover that I was it—the only lesbian. It was bad enough being the one lesbian, but it became harder once the focus of the group turned to writing & performing erotic poetry. Feeling increasingly invisible by descriptions of heterosexual intercourse, an idea of a poem, Bad Girl Persona began to emerge— a poem about hot lesbian seduction & sex. No question that I wanted to proclaim the sex in sexual identity, to flaunt sex between women. No question I wanted to shock.” Club Café Boston is located at 209 Columbus Avenue in Boston MA. Refreshments will be at 6P & the show will begin at 6:30P The event is sponsored by Fenway Health.
