thepride - Brian Sonia-Wallace has been named West Hollywood’s 4th City Poet Laureate making him the youngest person to occupy the role. 

Making his start, Sonia-Wallace took to the streets with his typewriter, leading to unlikely residencies from Amtrak to the Mall of America and eventually to his debut memoir, The Poetry of Strangers (Available on Amazon) about traveling the country writing poems for thousands of strangers based on their stories. His LGBTQ+ poetry group, Pride Poets, has written poems for over 800 custom love poems for people over the last two Prides.
