Denice Frohman Performance

DENICE FROHMAN is an award-winning poet, writer, performer, educator and speaker, whose work explores the intersections of race/ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and the “in-betweeness” that exists in us all. Her poetry focuses on social change, and explores the tension between the stories we tell about ourselves, the ones told about us, and the ones we tell about each other. As a queer woman from a multi-cultural background (Puerto Rican and Jewish), her work centers the nuances of identity, disrupts ideas of power, and seeks to celebrate the parts of ourselves deemed unworthy. She hopes to inspire people, particularly young folks, to not be ashamed of who they are and to use their own creative voices. For this event, Denice Frohman will be sharing her poetry.
