WITS show at the Three Minute Theatre for International Womens Day ended with my poem ‘Stand With Me’ and they did! Loved all the powerful pieces delivered by amazing artists! Pleasure to be a part of it and totally up for celebrating the awesomeness of women worldwide not just today but always! For all of you women that I know and all of you I don’t, you are colossal beautiful beings! And theres is so much to be done! The fight for gender equality, an end to gender violence and the dismantling of what Bell Hooks calls the ‘imperialist white-supremecist capitalist patriarchy’ are still pressing issues. Where there is power there will always be resistance but right now it’s time for bed!
This Sunday, I loved the opportunity I was given to perform with some extremely talented young Wordsmiths and spoken word artists from Manchester’s Young Identity group facilitated by the amazing Chris Jam! ‘Twas a gathering of sheer awesomeness!
