“Queer Icons” by Gabriel Garcia Roman, 2015

Kay Ulanday Barrett, a multi-talented brown trans disabled artist, will be visiting Metropolitan State University during his When the Chant Comes 2018 tour. This stop of the book tour will feature a performance and a Q&A session with the author.

According to Topside Press, "Kay Ulanday Barrett has been bringing his unique poetry to audiences for over a decade, unpicking vital political questions around race, disability and gender, and chronicling the everydayness of life in the U.S. Empire with acute perceptiveness and vitality. Now at last a generous selection of his work is available in print. Polemical, tragic, funny and tender by turns, these poems show a master
craftsman at the top of his game."
