Melissa Lozada-Oliva – “If I Got Paid For All My Emotional Labor”

Performing at Olivia Gatwood’s Book Release Party.

“If I got paid for all my emotional labor, I’d hire an unassuming, relatively attractive white man to follow me around so every time you don’t believe me, he can just repeat what I said so then, like, you do believe me.”

Don’t miss this amazing poem from Melissa Lozada-Oliva, performing at Olivia Gatwood’s book release in St. Paul, MN.
