South Florida Gay News
A whole day of women’s programming is being added to this year’s Gay8 Festival, a Latino LGBT music, food and arts fest taking place Sunday, Feb. 18. in Little Havana.
Sponsored by the Miami Book Fair, ImpactOUT International Initiative and the Cubaocho Museum and Performing Arts Center, the Women’s Tertulia is a free event for people to ponder poetry, write short stories, admire artwork and share ideas. The women-identified literary and creative arts event runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Cubaocho Museum and Performing Arts Center, 1465 SW Eighth St.
Popular in Spain, Portugal and Latin America, Tertulia’s are social gatherings with literary or artistic overtones for people to share their recent creations such as poetry, short stories, other writings and artwork or songs.
Lynare Robbins, who is running the Women’s Tertulia and serves on the Gay8 host committee, said while the event is geared towards women, specifically lesbian women, everyone is welcomed to attend.
