Poetry Inspired By Queer Portland and the Onset of Pandemic

  • 314 Forest Avenue Portland, ME, 04101 United States (map)

In 1984 the first cases of AIDS are being diagnosed in Maine. Disinformation is rampant. Activists, including the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, take to the streets. Then, Charlie Howard, a young man in Bangor, is murdered because he’s queer. These events set the backdrop for Robert Carr’s new book of poetry, The Unbuttoned Eye. Join us for this reading and add your voice to a discussion of the book and the history it honors.
