SERIES OVERVIEW: TONGUE: A Political Erotic Reading Series, creates a space for queering the erotic, the sensual and the political. This 12 month reading and workshop series lends itself to enhancing the craft of LGBTQI&STR8 poets, writers, visual artist and community members with a place to publish and showcase the performing, visual, written and spoken word. Through communal workshops and monthly readings, TONGUE, embodies an inclusive and challenging space for LGBTQI&STR8 poets, writers and audience members to share with intention, their voice, truths and writing power with Newark. WHAT IS POLITICAL EROTICA: One who takes issue with much of what might be considered traditional morality in the US and creates a distinctly American form of erotic visual performance literature which she or he draws from the different ethnic, religious and cultural strains of our society, creating contrasts of pleasure, desire, celebration of the body and pain as well as guilt, resentment and deprivation. All the long recognizing that this form of writing and visual art has value and is an important part of culture and the human experience where one can easily lose themselves in the erotic fantasies, the imagery and the heat of the prose. TONGUE, takes us to the intersection of our desires and our political beliefs.
