Launch: An Accessible Open Mic for Queer Youth, Seniors, and Allies
Launch! Offers inclusive and accessible space for new and seasoned writers, poets, dancers, performers and everyone in between. Though its focus is on showcasing the voices of queer youth, elders, and allies, anyone is welcome to come read, sing, dance, drag, lip synch, or otherwise entertain us. Launch! Offers an accessible alternative to the bar scene (well lit, no steps, attentive & kind audience, support for first time readers, youth and elder friendly), and a space for new/experienced work.
