The first edition of Sibling Rivalry Press' Arkansas Queer Poet Series titled "OTHERED" by Randi Romo will be available for the first time at the Queer Arts Street Fair on Saturday, August 11. Randi Romo will be signing copies at the SRP booth from 3-5 pm.

Per Sibling Rivalry Press...

“There is no better landing place for our grief, our love, and our hopes for a better tomorrow than poems. They vibrate with an urgency that defies the dead and enlivens the future. But Othered is more than a collection of poetry; it is proof positive that becoming one’s true self is still the most revolutionary act that any human being can undertake. Randi M. Romo shows us how it’s done—with courage, great care, and community.” - James License, Co-Founder of the Trevor Project

Randi M. Romo has a voice that reaches into multiple segments of who we are as humans, with an emphasis on queer. As a working-class Mexican-American, Southerner, former farmworker, organizer/activist, female, parent, grandparent, elder, and survivor, she has walked among and between many communities. Othered is her first book.”

The Queer Arts Street Fair is Saturday, August 11 from 12pm to 6pm in the Argenta Arts District of North Little Rock. It is part of the 4th Annual Kaleidoscope LGBT Film & Culture Festival presented by Here TV which runs August 10-18. For more info:
