L.A. Mykki Blanco fans, it’s time to get wavvy.
This Thursday, the rapper, artist, and all-around badass will perform at UCLA for anyone who wants to come. That’s right, it’s free. Per the event page: “
In “The Worlds I Inhabit” artist Michael David Quattlebaum Jr., aka Mykki Blanco, tells the autobiographical story of his origins. A child actor, poet, teenage prostitute, performance artist and musician, Quattlebaum is an activist and one of the only vocal HIV positive entertainers in the world. Interweaving stories of personal failures and career triumphs, laying bare the realities of racism, homophobia, abuse and sexual trauma that would be critical pillars of his creative practice as well the artists exploration of their gender identity we learn the making and unmaking of Mykki Blanco.”
We’ll see you there!
