LETTIE LAUGHTER: ARTIST
Lettie Laughter is a non-binary two-spirit Diné writer, performer, community healer, & educator who currently lives, loves, & dreams in Philly.
Lettie has graced babes from coast to coast with their words, smile, & tears. They've swam in the love of femmes at FemmeCom when it was hosted in Baltimore, MA. & coasted on the ooooh's & aaaaah's of so may queer babes at the National Queer Arts Festival in San Francisco, CA., & places in between where babely hearts congregate & heal.
Although they received a tiny red & white striped diary with little hearts in the first grade, they didn't begin a daily writing practice until they were 14-years-old. That was when they discovered the healing power of writing, & subsequently wrote to save their own life for the next several years. Lately, they've been channeling their creative efforts into their tarot blog, Always Waxing & Waning, but is also trying to revive their first language: poetry. (They're also 3/4 of the way through a decade long Pluto transit, which has mostly showed up as a slew of broken heart fiascos since 2012, which has made establishing a writing practice very challenging.)
Lettie's poems have found homes in As/Us: A Space for Women of the World in their 4th Issue: Decolonial Love, as well as in Glitter & Grit: Queer Performance from the Heels on Wheels Femme Galaxy.
