SUNDAY, JUNE 12 | PLACE THEM ON THE ALTAR

Audience: Open to All | Time: 7:30 PM | Location: Lory Student Center Theater at CSU
Join us for a night of music, poetry, and ritual exploring nonbinary identity, all by composer Silen Wellington (they/he). Tessa Romano (they/them) will perform nonbinary cabaret songs about coming out, expression through hair, and gender affirming language. Playground Ensemble will perform with Silen’s poetry exploring the paradox of being both de-sexualized and hyper-sexualized as a transgender person, divulging and releasing the harassment they’ve experienced from cisgender men on dating apps.

Following, we will open the stage to other poets and spoken word artists to express and share with the option of musical improvisation over their words.

The Fort Collins show is sponsored by Bohemian Foundation’s Music Event Fund in partnership with SPLASH NoCo Youth, with additional support from CSU’s Pride Resource Center. Email: swellingtoncomposer@gmail.com with questions or to volunteer for a comp ticket.
