Queer Poetry

By Jeffrey Kingman

Poetry by Bay Area queer poets


On Nov. 1, 7:00pm, at the JFK Library, 505 Santa Clara St., Wayne Goodman expands his “Queer Words” series to Vallejo. East Bay authors MK Chavez, Vanessa Rochelle Lewis, and Andrew Demcak will present some of their works. Also joining them will be local Poetic Old Soul, as well as Vallejo’s current Poet Laureate, D. L. Lang.


In January 2016, Vallejo resident Wayne Goodman and his San Francisco-based partner, Rick May, began hosting their “Perfectly Queer” reading series at local, independent bookstores in San Francisco and Oakland. Their goal has been to bring queer-identified authors into bookstores to help support both the writers and the stores.
