The NYC-based poet and outspoken political activist Staceyann Chin has a long tradition of support both for and from within the LGBTQ and Black communities. Chin’s star first rose with a break-out role in the Tony-nominated Def Poetry Jam and burst into a supernova with her critically acclaimed memoir The Other Side of Paradise. Her fierce and uncensored rhetoric, matched with an abiding kindness and clarity of purpose, have made her an indispensable voice of righteous truth and a Lincoln Center featured artist for over a decade. For this performance, specially commissioned in support of Restart Stages’ Pride Celebration, Ms. Chin will bring to bear her considerable talents as an author and a monologist, confronting topics of race, class, gender, sexuality and post-pandemic life.
