OUTspoken will provide four tales of fun and fortune from an LGBTQ+ perspective on Tuesday, June 1, starting at 7 p.m. on Zoom.

This program is free. Interested parties can go to Facebook, log on to OUTspoken at Sidetrack and the Zoom information will be available the day before the event.

Speakers include an educator, a past president of the Chicago Improv Festival, a storyteller and a professional writer.

Lisa DeSantiago is an educator who is proud to follow in the footsteps of her jibaro ancestors. The jbaro are countryside farmers as well as iconic reflections of the Puerto Rican people. The Jibaro stories of resilience offered Lisa life lessons of love and hope. She sees herself as a purveyor of peace.

David Fink is the founder of Acorn Theater in Three Oaks, Michigan, as well as past president of the Chicago Improv Festival and the Poetry Center of Chicago. He has great ability in scouting talent.

Emil Amok is a storyteller and performer who tells stories as a cis observer of gay life. He is also (using the name Emil Guillermo) an American print and broadcast journalist, commentator and humorist. His column, "Emil Amok" appeared for more than 14 years in Asian Week—at one time the most widely read and largest circulating Asian American news weekly in the U.S.

Lisa Ann Acosta is an academic by day and the consumer of queer trash romances by night. She has been writing for Teatro Luna since 2006 and has also published essays and short stories.

OUTspoken is a monthly LGBTQ+ story telling event, usually presented at Sidetrack Bar, 3349 Halsted St. The current pandemic, however, has forced it to Zoom.

For more information, call 773-477-9189 or email info@outspoken.com .
