About Queer Heartache
Kit Yan is an award-winning, queer, trans, Asian-American poet from Hawaii. QUEER HEARTACHE is his solo slam poetry show that explores his identities, asks what queer hearts and families are made of, and interrogates the forces that constantly work to break them apart. QUEER HEARTACHE is a testament to the resilience of queer love in all its forms—between cis and trans siblings, lovers, pride parade attendees, and many more—in the face of heartbreaking barriers everywhere from the dating pool to the medical establishment. If you’ve ever had your heart broken, wondered how your pets self-identify, or wanted to tell someone your gender is none of their business, this show is for you.
