About This Show
Queer Art Organics celebrates LGBTQ writers and performers of all disciplines
The May iteration will feature Lisa Haas & Jes Tom.
Aimee Herman is a performance poet with two full-length books of poems.
LISA HAAS is a playwright, comedy writer, and actor. In addition to appearing in “Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same” she was a co-screen writer and co-star in Madeleine Olnek’s 2014 feature “The Foxy Merkins”. She has performed in many NYC downtown venues such as the WOW Café, Dixon Place, Joe’s Pub and HERE Arts Center and wrote the stage comedies “Stacked: A Deviant Doctoral Dissertation”, “Rita & Inez: The True Queens of Femininity”, “In Heat: Is She Hot Under Her Collar or Under Her Skirt” and “Crown Hill Cemetery” for which she received a Jerome Foundation Fellowship.

JES TOM (they/them) is a weird queer stand up comic, gleefully providing the nonbinary queer Asian American radical cyborg perspective that everyone never knew they wanted. Jes has performed at colleges and conferences spanning the frigid American northeast, and in all five boroughs of New York at venues such as Joe’s Pub, Brooklyn Museum, and the Atrium at Lincoln Center.
