KAY ULANDAY BARRETT

     

Kay Ulanday Barrett is a poet and performer living life as a disabled Filipinx-American transgender queer in the U.S. with struggle, resistance, and laughter. Their second book, More Than Organs received a 2021 Stonewall Honor Book Award and was a 2021 Lambda Literary Award Finalist. Barrett is a three-time Pushcart Prize Nominee and two-time Best of the Net Nominee. They have performed at The United Nations, Lincoln Center, Symphony Space, Brooklyn Museum, Princeton, & more.

About Kay’s Work: “We deeply need disabled queer of color writers to be writing and performing our lives, and do not have nearly enough of our voices writing and publishing in the world. Kay’s work fills a much needed void.” -Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha
