Poet Emanuel Xavier is one of the most significant voices to emerge from the neo-Nuyorican spoken word movement. He captivates audiences with a fresh and poignant brand of art that celebrates sexuality, Latino heritage and the often-brutal streets.
Xavier is author of the Lambda Literary Award nominated semi-autobiographical novel, Christ-Like, and two poetry collections, Pier Queen and Americano. He has been featured on PBS's In
The Life and HBO's Def Poetry.
A recipient of the Marsha A. Gomez Cultural Heritage Award for his contributions to gay and
Latino culture, he has also received a NYC Council Citation.
