Aalonah Sterlings aka Monarch the Poet

Monarch is an LGBTQ wordsmith, a leader, an activist, and a community volunteer. The twenty-four year old poet has spent all of his adult life writing poems to express his traumas and successes. He uses his experiences as a black, transgender man in America to teach local youth how to tell their own stories through poetry. His poetry style flows like water but his consistent hard work and passion has transcended him into a well-known, slam winning poet taking Sin City by storm.
