I'm delighted to announce the FIRST of many Open Mic Poetry Nights with the illustrious Scales & Tales Queer Booklounge!  This is a magical space filled with books, games, lounge space, a gorgeous custom stage, and an enormous outdoor area to enjoy Florida's beautiful weather.  A safe space first and foremost, Scales & Tales is dedicated to all of the things that I value in my own branding:  safety, raising up queer voices, and providing access to art.

As such, we will be taking donations to the Compass LGBTQ+ Community Center, which helps us local queers get access to mental health care, health services, social and support groups, emergency services, and so much more.  They are a pillar in the queer community of West Palm Beach, and we are all safer and better off for the works they provide.  I can't say enough about them.  Please check out their website for more information, as they frequently host events and fundraisers.

Covid Precautions

Scales & Tales has a strict masking policy to keep all of us safe!  Thank you, Scales & Tales!
