More Info

Queer The Mic (Instagram @queerthemic) is a glittery spoken word and poetry stage for Brighton. An evening of joy, humour and resistance from entirely queer and trans performers. Expect 8 handpicked open mic performers, a brilliant feature chosen from the last event and a starry headline act. Our headliner will be Kid Anansi Kid Anansi is the poetic equivalent of finding out that the drinks machine in your local McDonalds has quietly replaced its Pepsi button with spiced rum. He is confusing, frightening, delicious with ginger ale and lemon, and unhealthy in large doses. His unique brand of poetry will either have you laughing, crying, biting your knuckles in second-hand embarrassment, or all three, mixing history and melancholy with slapstick humour and inimitable energy. A regular face on the BAFTA Award winning first season of Life & Rhymes, and a host of multiple poetry nights around London. "He's that creative hurricane!" - Benjamin Zephaniah. Our feature is Kofi Achina: Kofi is a London based spoken word artist and self-proclaimed storyteller. He'll speak on anything, from sunsets to fascism. Performed from Brighton seafront to Islington. Managed to worm his way into a Hammer and Tongue slam final and got a piece published when he was 9. £6/£8 7.30PM 18+
