Patricia Cole decided that St. Louis is "too big and diverse to set limits" on who's voice can be heard. As one of the founders of Skirt Chasers III, LLC, Patricia and other Black lesbian artists produced Sista Speak, a monthly open mic at Cicero's that caters to gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender spoken word artists and musicians. The mic is uncensored, so leave the kids and the squeamish at home. Everyone is welcome, but antagonistic agendas and disrespect will be openly reprimanded by audience members and hosts. For those who enjoy artistic expressions from all perspectives, Sista Speak is no disappointment. Many Sista Speak regulars have worked with internationally known artists from various genres of music and poetry. Open minds equal good times at this venue.
