Charlie Vázquez and Nowhere are happy to present HISPANIC PANIC! – El futuro, an intimate and irreverent evening with six queer Latino writers and poets...

Charlie Vázquez will host poets and writers Aaron Powell, Orlando Ferrand, Maegan La Mala Ortiz, Miguel Angeles, Cristy Road and Alicia Anabel Santos for a very special evening of literary Latinidad and laughs--cheering to our future.

Don’t miss this chance to catch the edgiest wave of New York Latino literature and words in action. This reading will be followed by a special meet-and-greet with Blatino poet Aaron Powell, whose latest poetry collection “Behind Concrete Doors” has been shaking up the queer NYC poetry scene.

***We'll also be taking donations after the reading to help queer Nuyorican playwright, poet and actor A.B. Lugo go to Puerto Rico in November to present his play "Emboscada" at the XXXII Festival de Teatro de Caguas...

I WAS BORN: Reading

If you missed the workshop in July... you'll have a chance to catch the show this October. For more info. email

Synopsis: I WAS BORN~ Is a multimedia one-woman show about seven remarkable women Lia a reporter from the United States meets during her travels throughout Latin America. These women have impacted, inspired and changed the way she sees women from Latin

These seven women represent the strength of the Latina experience… they were BORN to tell THEIR STORY. These are women that you might hear about but have never met. They each share their personal experiences. These are their testimonials.

Lia’s aim is to bring their stories to the surface and give them recognition for what they symbolize and ALL that they contribute to the Latina story. She addresses the human rights violations that currently exist in Latin America… specifically
the breakdown of the Latina Woman…

Lia’s mission is to walk with each of them as their worlds collapse and their stories collide. This is the story of the women who are hidden behind the darkness.

I WAS BORN~ is a story that takes you on a journey through the labyrinth of Latin America where seven brave women bring you into their world.
