A brand, spankin' new reading program will debut at A Different Light bookstore in West Hollywood on July 12th. It’s called the Promising Series with the goal of exclusively featuring established and emerging gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender writers.
“I think that it’s important that writers at varying points in their literary careers meet to share work and ideas,” said series coordinator Noel Alumit. “New GLBT writers in particular need a space where they can express themselves. More established writers can inspire hope for those just beginning a career.”
The Promising Series first reading will feature writer Prince Gomolvilas. His plays include BIG HUNK O' BURNIN' LOVE, THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING, BEE, and the stage adaptation of MYSTERIOUS SKIN. He received the Beverly Hills Theatre Guild/Julie Harris Playwright Award, International Herald Tribune/SRT Playwriting Award, PEN Center USA West Literary Award for Drama, East West Players' Made in America Award for Outstanding Artistic Achievement for the Asian Pacific Islander Community, and a screenwriting fellowship with The Chesterfield Writer's Film Project, sponsored by Paramount Pictures.
