LUNADA: New Moon Virtual Literary Lounge

Wednesday, April 22, 2020 | 6:00 pm


On this month’s full moon when the moon is the closest to earth, also known as the pink moon, we want to announce the return of Lunada Literary Lounge!


For two decades, Lunadas have fortified Bay Area communities on the full moon. During this time of crisis, Lunadas go virtual and move to the new moon, a time for intention setting and realignment. Recognizing the need to pull together, Galería de la Raza joins forces with Borderlands Theater and Lunada founder Marc David Pinate, in a historic collaboration to present an evening of truth-telling and testimonials on the dark side of the moon. Featuring the best Latinx poets in the country, this is an evening of medicine for the heart and spirit. 


Mark your calendars for Wednesday, April 22, 2020 @ 6 p.m. PST.



We're excited to have all these wonderful poets and performers join Galeria de la Raza and Borderlands Theater from different parts of the world to be a part of the lineup for Lunada: New Moon Virtual Literary Lounge


*Please note: we acknowledge the open mic as an integral aspect of Lunada tradition, but, unfortunately, due to limited technical capacity and overall logistics in regulating an open mic remotely, Lunada will only be featuring a curated lineup of poets and performers. We hope we can continue the open mic tradition in the future and that you join us for this magical evening!
