    Watch Mykki Blanco perform ‘I Want A Dyke For President’
    The uniquely provocative rapper reads Zoe Leonard’s 1992 poem to camera as America’s election machine goes into overdrive

    "I want a candidate who isn’t the lesser of two evils”. These are words published nearly 25 years ago by American artist and prominent Aids activist Zoe Leonard in her poem I Want A Dyke For President. In 2016, as we watch Hillary Clinton and, unbelievably, Donald Trump battle it out for control of America, as xenophobic politicians helped the United Kingdom leave the EU, as Russian bombs drop on Syria, the poem – that aggressively questions the violent banality of our elected politicians – remains as relevant and striking as ever."

    Meh, we've got one for governor (she says she's "bisexual") and one for speaker of the house. They haven't really done anything about the state's outstanding problems.
