Come in and make yourself at home. If we haven’t met before, then the first thing you should know about me is my name. I go by Minnie Bruce—it’s a double-first-name, just like Fannie Lou or Rita Mae—so do call me by both.

While this appears on my website you'll know that my communication with you may be limited. My partner, Leslie Feinberg, continues to be very ill. So I may not be able to respond to every message, and/or in a timely way. For updated information on Leslie, visit:

If you’d like me to visit your campus, conference, organization, or Pride Rally, you can contact me about speaking at an upcoming event by clicking on speaking engagements.

I hope you enjoy all the connections to art, politics, love, and life you find here. You can get my up-to-date-biography; add your name to my mailing list; check my upcoming travel schedule; and order my books!

Browse through my books and get short excerpts in English, Spanish/Espaol and German/Deutsch, as well as thumbnail reviews. And don't forget to check out current political struggles in La Lucha. And please meet my beloved, writer and transgender activist, Leslie Feinberg, and my extended family.

If you sign up for my Twitter, you'll receive updates about my writing and political work.

I hope you'll follow me on facebook where I post poems under my "Notes" —and also on my Daily Drafts poetry blog and my home blogspot at Minnie Bruce Pratt where I post political comments.

Come back soon and visit often. I'll update this page regularly, so let me know if there's something in particular you'd like to see here. And I look forward to meeting you down the road--at a poetry reading, a Pride Rally, or the next street demonstration for justice and liberation.
