Chocolate Rainbow Poetry Open Mic
Hyatt Regency - Downtown Phoenix

Chocolate Rainbow Poetry Open Mic was created as a safe place for our melanated LGBTQIA+ community and supporters to share, interact and be FREE! It\'s a safe place where the COMPLETE YOU has a home. Come get on the mic alongside incredible local, regional and national featured artists and share your poetry, comedy or song. Just show up early and sign up. Whether you are L,G,B,T,Q,I,A, + or still unsure about your identity, know that you are OUR PEOPLE, hence the question \"What\'s Yo Flava???\". Find comfort in knowing that all genders, races and sexual orientations are welcome, that we will respect and honor each other\'s differences and experiences, and we welcome those that are unsure of their identity. This is an event for ANYONE and EVERYONE who supports the Chocolate Rainbow in Phoenix! The only thing not welcomed is NEGATIVE ENERGY! Your host is the one and only Nina Ross Wit Da Sauce. Nina is one of the BEST HOSTS you will ever get to see. Her direct, but funny style will keep you engaged and laughing throughout the night. And last but never least...our resident mixologist DJ Zima Blue will be spinning the kickback happening prior to the show. That\'s right! From 6-7pm we are letting this music MASTER set the vibe to socialize and just have a hell of a night! HOW ARE YOU GOING TO MISS ALL OF THIS?! And if you love it, come back again and again, because Chocolate Rainbow Poetry Open Mic will be here for you EVERY MONTH!!! Show up when the doors open to get on the open mic list!!! U ain\'t neva seen anything like this before, so you don\'t want to miss it!!! Photo caption/credit: Good Energy Productions
