On the third Tuesday of each month we hold a Showcase! This month we will feature Poetry to start off the New Year. With host Rachel Gleason Poetry, and our feature this time around KFG, we are sure you will have an eye opening experience and hear some amazing spoken word!
KFG is a potpourri-of-queerness, mental-health advocating, Pisces poet hatched from the Great Lake State.
An award-winning writer and spoken word artist who has been featured on NPR, traveled the country on a mental health awareness tour; co-organized the re-installation of Slam Poetry in Grand Rapids, & was on the first team to represent the team at the National Poetry Slam in over a decade in 2017 and 2018.
KFG draws from their own experiences as a queer youth, navigating their own nonbinary and trans identity, as a teaching artist with The Diatribe — a non-profit organization in Grand Rapids dedicated to uniting and inspiring the youth through spoken word poetry.
