UPDATED EVENT INFORMATION
We are excited to invite you all to join us for the upcoming visit from Osimiri Sprowal, an Afro-Indigenous, Two-Spirit, QueerCrip poet, model, researcher, and Disabled/queer homeless rights activist. Their work grapples with the complex nature of identity and spirituality, and chronicles their journey to finding the divine within himself. Centering the body, Osimiri’s poetry deals with disability, trans identity, and self-transformation. They are the founder and President of deadname.arts, Philadelphia’s all trans artist collective. Osi was recently awarded the 2019 Head and Hand Shockwire Chapbook contest, the 2019 True Colors Innovation Fellowship--creating resources for trans/queer youth who have also suffered from homelessness nationwide, and is the author of Gemini: Duality of Self, which chronicles their experiences as a genderfluid person, among other publications.
