TC Tolbert often identifies as a trans and genderqueer feminist, collaborator, dancer, and poet but really s/he’s just a human in love with humans doing human things. The author of Gephyromania and three chapbooks, Tolbert is also co-editor (along with Trace Peterson) of Troubling the Line: Trans and Genderqueer Poetry and Poetics. S/he is currently studying to be an EMT and spends his summers leading wilderness trips for Outward Bound. Tolbert was recently named Tucson’s Poet Laureate.
The Lunch Poems series, founded by Professor Robert Hass, is under the direction of Professor Geoffrey G. O'Brien.
Support for this series is provided by Dr. and Mrs. Tom Colby, the Library, The Morrison Library Fund, the dean's office of the College of Letters and Sciences, the English Department, and the Townsend Center for the Humanities. These events are also partially supported by Poets & Writers, Inc. through a grant it has received from The James Irvine Foundation.
