The Equal Action folks are an amazing group of organizers dedicated to empowering queer youth of color to fight for social justice. I hope they don't mind my plagiarizing their post:
Equal Action proudly presents
an open mic and safe space for queer and ally youth 19 and under
Friday | 03.25.11 | 6:30-9:00
with two extremely creative women
during this Women's History Month
singer and song writer Caresse Fernandez
Caresse is 4'11 and that seems tiny,
Although this is true, her voice is kinda mighty.
Ready to go with her guitar,
Equipped with a piano, she could go far.
She likes to sing and she likes to dance,
She just loves music, so give her a chance!

a single mother of color.
