BLOCKED BADDIES

It’s LitCrawl Time Again!

We are super honored to be working with KQED and LitQuake once more, to bring you a taste of DEMG during their annual big LitCrawl show! Join us Oct 14th at The Laundry, 3359 26th Street San Francisco, during the third leg of LitCrawl! 8 PM! This show is titled “¡Bad Immigrants!” and will bring you literary performances from immigrant writers on the strength, hilarity, and humanity of being an immigrant. With performances by: Ingrid Rojas Contreras, Amanda Muñiz, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, and Camilo Villa.

zZulfikar Ali Bhutto is an artist of mixed Pakistani and Lebanese descent. He has performed with Radar Productions, The Stud, throughout the U.S, Colombia, Pakistan and Dubai. Some of you might ask, why Zulfi is performing with us, and we’re like, why not? Though, DEMG is a Latinx Performance showcase, we invited Zulfikar to join us in solidarity with our queer Muslim immigrant siblings. As pocs we should support each other and make space for each other, also DEMG is a huge fan of Zulfikar, his work is incredible. DEMG stands with all immigrants.
