Steven Reigns, In Conversation: Part I

img-steven-full01

In October 2014, poet and educator Steven Reigns was appointed the first City Poet of West Hollywood. Now well into his second of a two-year term, Steven and I sat down for a chat. The result is a lush conversation about libraries’ effect on him as a queer youth, discovering the power to make our own literary communities, and why he asked LGBT seniors to write about their first times.

I’m thrilled to have my conversation with Steven as Slant Rhyme’s inaugural feature. Listen to the first of a two-part interview here:

This interview was produced by Michelle-Marie Gilkeson and first aired on IMRU Radio, a radio magazine covering issues related to the LGBTQ community for over forty years.
