July 9th-July 26th

Come join j.scales in her one woman show: a funky, fun, & sometimes “effed-up” look into the creative life of a young black lesbian poet/songwriter…struggling to find her voice, heal herself, & create community.

j. scales is an artist whose creative and performance
skills span a broad range of styles and media.

j.scales is a self-proclaimed and self-ordained “healerartist” who works to empower marginalized communities. As a musician and vocalist, she has performed at the Kennedy Center, Nuyorican Cafe, House of Blues (New Orleans), and Serafemme Festival (West Hollywood).

Her poetry has been published in two anthologies: Growing Up Girl and Just Like a Girl: A Manifesta (both from GirlChild Press), and also online, in the Beltway Poetry Quarterly.

As a workshop facilitator, she has helped LGBTQ youth and adults recognize and use their inherent creative writing skills to affirm core values such as self-love, holistic healing, and community activism.
