Call in to get a custom poem for you or loved ones based on the topic of your choice, written by one of the teams of LGBTQ+ Pride Poets standing by at the remote Poetry Hotline from June 11-13, marathon-style from 10 am-10 pm. Poems will be written on the spot, and callers can choose to have copies of the poems emailed or mailed to them.

For the last two years, Pride Poets has brought together the LGBTQ+ literary community and members of the public. In 2019, they popped up with typewriters around West Hollywood throughout the month of Pride, crafting over 600 new poems for passersby commemorating their personal queer histories. In 2020 Pride Poets fielded 60 custom poem requests submitted online and ran Pride Mic, which featured 100+ LGBTQ+ writers and notable historian Lillian Faderman (co-author of Gay LA).
