On Monday 13th February I’m reading at a spoken word celebration for LGBT+ history month.
Venue – Leith Depot, 1900 – 2300.
I had a blast – what a great night, and what a variety of performers and poems. It’s the first time I’ve pulled together an exclusively LGBT+ set, and I was a bit worried it included some of my darker poems – but the audience laughed in the right places. Thanks to everyone who came up and chatted afterwards or who messaged me. The best reward for me as a writer is to know I connected with the listener / reader.
Would be great for this night to become a more regular event. There’s definitely an appetite and a space for it. No pressure, organisers. 🙂
