Back in February, I was part of the opening line-up for the 2nd Biannual Jim Rogers Contrarian Lecture hosted by Black Mountain Institute (BMI), a literary nonprofit in Las Vegas. Each of the openers were tasked with presenting a two-minute “micro” contrarian lecture.
BMI’s website recently uploaded video from the event. Unfortunately, the video’s settings don’t allow me to embed it, but ya girl comes on at 14:25.
My contrarian micro essay, “On Gratitude,” (briefly!) discusses queer visibility in a capitalist culture.
