Celebrating six years of Breaking Our Silence programming, the showcase was launched in the 2013 Poetic License Festival by Joanna Hoffman, Elliot D. Smith, Charan P. Morris and Storm Thomas and has since highlighted the work of 23 all-star queer poets and musicians, sharing their experiences of coming out, finding love, breaking the silence and speaking out. The 2018 showcase theme of “Reclaiming Our Voices” is a celebration of both the shared experiences and the complexities and uniqueness of each individual within the large LGBTQ community. Featured artists in the 2018 showcase will include Joanna Hoffman, Charan P. Morris, Sam LaRoche, David Davila, Sarah Duncan, Ian Fields Stewart and more artists TBA.
