Denice Frohman, a spoken word poet, wowed audiences at the “Women of the World Poetry Slam” in Minneapolis earlier this year with her piece “Dear Straight People.”
A video of the incredible performance, which has recently been making rounds on the Internet, shows Frohman highlighting the ways straight people and heteronormative culture attempt to regulate the lives and relationships of queer individuals.
Frohman won the 2013 competition and after you’ve seen this clip, you’ll know why.
Another slam poet from the same competition, Sierra DeMulder, saw a video of her performance go viral last April. Her poem brilliantly nailed Michele Bachman and her husband’s gay “cure” clinic.
