Learn More Series: There Will Be Queer People in the Future

In this first Learn More Series event of the 2022-2023 academic year, we hear from the author and City of Boston Poet Laureate Porsha OlayiwolaOlayiwola, a native of Chicago living in Boston, is a writer, performer, educator and curator who uses afro-futurism and surrealism to examine historical and current issues in the Black, woman, and queer diasporas. She earned her MFA in poetry from Emerson College and is the current poet laureate for The City of Boston and the Jacob Ziskind Poet-in-Residence at Brandeis University.

This event originally took place on Thursday, September 22, 2022 and was co-sponsored by the LGBTQIA+ Center for Faculty & Staff.

This event is part of BU Diversity & Inclusion’s (BU D&I) Learn More Series, which explores a single topic of social importance through events, discussions, and programs throughout the year— this year, BU D&I is exploring LGBTQIA+ Identity and Experiences.
