Event Details

Word of Mouth presents “DYSPHORIA”, a pride-themed poetry competition! Google “dysphoria”, and you find the literal definition: “a state of unease or generalized dissatisfaction with life.” However, in witnessing the testimony of so many prevailing voices in the lgbtq+ community, its clear that those who experience gender dysphoria are anything but “dissatisfied with life”. This country continues to fail our trans and non-binary friends, but their fight to live against these frightening odds is all but “dissatisfied with life”. We are excited to celebrate this month of pride, as it inspires so much power in poetry across the world. Show us how you define dysphoria, and compete in this next poetry competition! Bring in any piece, pride-themed or not, to Café Calypso on June 24th, 2023; doors open at 6 PM. $10 entry fee to the competition, and free admission to watch!
