Special guest- Poet, Founder, Inspiration  Jha D

Jha D is a lover, a lesbian, a student, a poet and whatever else she wants to be on a given day. She likes going out for dinner alone, having long conversations with homeless people, talking about books she’s never read, hearing other people laugh and getting hugs. As a writer and performer, she focuses her work on turning up the volume for the Voice of the LGBTIQ community. She firmly believes in the power of expression and professes that ‘there is true art in spreading your own truths’. Considering her identity, most of her work pertains to Lesbians of Color and aims to explore and express their experiences. Her poetry has afforded her the opportunities to participate in documentaries such as 'What Now: A Tiffany J. Davis Documentary', be featured and host workshops at events such as the annual ‘True Colors Conference’ and invited to MC events such as Queer Women of Color’s [QWOC] ‘OUTSPOKEN’ Showcase. Coupled with her passion of expressing herself is her desire to encourage others to speak and be heard, which led her to establishing the ‘if you can Feel it, you can Speak it’ Open Mic in November 2010. The mission of the ‘Feel it, Speak it’ Open Mic is to give anyone an opportunity to get on the mic and speak their peace.
