A former Georgetown University lecturer Richard Blanco whose work often focuses on gender and being a gay Latino will be the 2013 inaugural poet, according toThe New York Times.
According to Blanco’s CV, he taught literature and creative writing classes at both Georgetown and American Universities in 2003-2004. He also taught a prison education course through the Georgetown Center for Social Justice.
Inaugural planners told Fox News they were interested in Blanco’s “intersection of his cultural identities as a Cuban-American gay man.”
