Some description

As a teenager in Jamaica, Staceyann Chin lived in fear of an unwanted pregnancy. As a lesbian performance poet in Brooklyn in her ever-later 30s, she craves nothing more than a child…only to face twists of love, biology, and health insurance. A hilarious, intimate, and heart-shaking story of the best-laid plans and hairpin turns with a magnetic performance from Staceyann Chin (Def Poetry Jam).


Ms. Chin has such a magnetic presence … [her] easygoing radiance…keeps you hooked.
