Queer kundiman iconic salon

ace hotel new york boardroom
20 W 29th St, New York, NY 10001

Saturday, June 15th
2:00 pM – 5:00 PM

Join Kundiman for a celebration of queer writing and identity at The Ace Hotel New York in honor of Pride Month! Hosted by Wo Chan, this event will celebrate queer & APIA icons––thinking about those who came before us, what makes them iconic, and how we can honor them in our work. This afternoon will include generative writing, a salon reading, and a fun, informal space to connect. The salon is free and open to all, and will prioritize QTPOC voices.

The Salon will be held at the Ace Hotel New York. Space is limited. Sign up now!

Register for the salon here!
