My favorite thing today – writer and filmmaker Leo Herrera hits the bullseye with his poem “Unmistakable Softness,” read by Jake Shears. Only two minutes, and so spot on.
There was a time when I’d have run from these words. I’m proud I’ve grown enough to embrace them. ‘Unmistakable softness’ – perfect.
Herrera is currently running a GoFundMe to help publish his debut novel:
I spent the last 2 years working on my debut novel! Your donations funds editing, art, PR and the option to self-publish. The followup to 2018’s Fathers Project (iftheylived.org) is part memoir, part science-fiction and completely Queer & Brown. “Tales of the City meets Blade Runner meets a Telenovela.”
The fundraiser will help benefit the Center for Immigrant Protection.
Happy Pride Month!
