Red Salmon Presents Café Libro Open Mike
Featuring the Critically-Acclaimed Loyce Gayo
Revisiting our open mike series, including a wonderful feature from Loyce Gayo!
Loyce Gayo is a Tanzanian born slam poet, singer/songwriter, and activist who currently resides in Texas, USA. Gayo is profoundly influenced by her experience in the diaspora and uses her craft to celebrate the journey of a people dispersed. She also uses her voice to advocate for the empowerment of marginalized people by supporting local effort and organizations. Gayo serves as an alumni of the 2014 They Speak Austin Poetry Slam team, and the CUPSI national champion team of 2014.
This is a safe space for people of color, and for LGBTQ folks.
Come by to share in a community space, and hear Loyce share some amazing words, and to share some words yourself. As always, there will be cafe y pan dulce, and good vibes. If you have any questions, let me know here or send me a DM.
