  • The Great Company 1917 Bay Street Los Angeles, CA, 90021 United States (map)

Wednesday, November 8, 2017 marks the one year anniversary of the election day when the US did not elect its first woman president. You are invited to participate in and witness what we have to say and express on this historic day during Our Mic's hiatus.#existenceisresistance

Doors: 7:30pm

Start: 8:00pm


Q. Who can participate in this open-mic?
A. Only those who identify as womyn, trans, and gender-non-conforming/non-binary individuals will be able to sign up for the open-mic. Cisgender* men are invited to be in the audience, listen and learn.

Q. So if I'm a guy, should I stay home that day?
A. No way! Cisgender men are invited to be in the audience and support. This is what allyship looks like. 

All interested womyn, trans, and GNC folks are invited to sign-up for the open-mic. Priority will be given to first-timers to Our Mic. Bring your music, poetry, fiction, dance, comedy or whatever means of expression you’d like to share (no particular theme as the theme is YOU!).

*Cisgender: Relating to a person whose gender identity aligns with what they were assigned at birth.

Bathrooms: The venue has gender-neutral bathrooms.

Accessibility: There are three steps at the entrance of the building and once inside there is an elevator to the 2nd floor open-mic space.

Parking: Entrance is in the back alley parallel to Bay Street. Parking in the alley is limited but plenty of street parking will be available.
