OUTspoken Poetry Slam

The Pride PEI Festival 2024, taking place from July 12–21, features a bounty of celebratory events, including the 9th annual OUTspoken Poetry Slam presented by PEERS Alliance on July 18 from 7–10 pm at The Guild in Charlottetown.

Join PEERS Alliance in celebrating the communities’ rebellious and unwavering joy. “We welcome folks from all decades, all backgrounds, all genders, and no genders, to join us gleefully as we revel in tales of burgeoning attractions, awakening truths, brave defiance, and queer relentless radiance,” share organizers.

Slam Poetry is not a passive experience. Slam Poetry stomps its feet and rattles the bars of complicity to create movements that challenge the status quo. This year’s performers are challenged to focus on what exuberant queer joy means to them; in their community and labours, activism and movements, rest and resistance, love and art. How are they sharing queer bliss? Performers will have have four minutes to titillate the audience, move them to tears, or both, with their righteous slams. 

Interested participants can email candace.ml.hagen@gmail.com.

OUTspoken is sober, free, and while the event is all-ages, there could be explorations of sexuality, rebellion, acceptance and unmitigated highs and lows that may have adult themes.
