Poet, artist and campaigner, Vince Laws, has been invited to speak and display art at the National LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans) Health Summit at Canterbury University on September 13 & 14.
Vince, who is openly gay, openly HIV+, and openly mad will consider the theme of ‘isolation’ and perform one or two appropriate poems. He will also collect phrases from the 350+ delegates and use them to create a brand new poem.
“It is important that we learn to love ourselves and our sexuality and our illnesses – if I hate my illness I am hating a part of myself.”
