Come to our queer and Trans open mic every last Wednesday of the month from 6-7:15pm. Sign up for the open mic happens at the event, first come first served.

We often have an ASL interpreter at the open mic. Please bring a printed out version of your poem/essay/lyrics that you will be performing. If you don't have a printer, email what you will be performing to fawzy@roomofonesown.com by the day of the event and they will print it out for you. Thank you!

If the weather is good, we will be outside on the patio where folks can choose whether or not to mask. If the weather brings us inside, masks are required for everyone -- performers included.

We have a mic and speaker and outlets for multiple amps/instruments.
