I must have wanton poets!

Besi Besemar January 13, 2013

Four of the most exciting queer poets in the UK today are putting on a performance in celebration of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Trans (LGBT) History Month at Envy, upstairs from Charles Street Bar, on Sunday February 17, as part of The B.Right.On Festival.

John McCullough’s author of Frost Fairs has just won the Polari First Book Prize – while young, London based poet, Max Wallis, was on the shortlist.

Polish born Maria Jastrzebska is “fabulous, audacious and compelling,” while Vince Laws has been called many things, including “controversial’!

Vince said:

“If I had a pound for every time I hear, I don’t normally like poetry, but that was great! I wouldn’t need to do this gig,”

“Come with open ears, an open mind, and I promise you are in for a treat.”

Open Mike participants are particularly encouraged to sign up on the afternoon.
