A Showcase of Transgender Artists, Musicians, Writers and Performers


Show Full Bio

Trashcanpoet is the rhyme-spitting alter ego of Miles Gabriel Burke, an Oakland-based slam poet, writer and spoken word artist. He was first published at 17 and co-founded the alt/hip-hop group RUUDE in Atlanta before moving to the Bay Area, where he has been a finalist for Berkeley’s and San Francisco’s national poetry slam teams and has performed with Fella-Fem, The Men’s Story Project, Artists Against Rape, and the Queer Girl Theatre Project (of which he was the first male-identified member), among others. In addition to performing, he is currently working on a novel, Oaklandia, which is half semi-autobiographical and half pure unadulterated bullshit.
