Welcome to Transcriptions, Boston's monthly queer- and trans-inspired open mic!

Transcriptions is an intentionally inclusive space for queer creative expression!
Read a poem, play a song, spit a rhyme, bust a move, tell a joke...

Our next event...
.... will be announced here, and on Facebook.

Please join our Facebook group to get the scoop on future events!


Transcriptions is held once a month on a Thursday (schedule TBA), from 7:30pm to 10:30pm,
at Spontaneous Celebrations in JP (Jamaica Plain, Boston) (directions).

Suggested donation of $5 to $10 at the door, sliding scale, cash only. Doors open at 7:15pm.

  • Bring your words, songs, dance moves, comedy, artwork, anything you want: it's open mic!
  • Bring some cash, to enjoy our vegan bake sale!
