The popular host of Come Rhyme With Me and author of the acclaimed poetry collection, ‘I Am Nobody’s Nigger’ reads from a selection of his poetry.

‘Dean Atta’s poetry is as honest as truth itself. He follows no trend; he seeks no favours … Beyond black, beyond white, beyond straight, beyond gay, so I say. Love your eyes over these words of truth. You will be uplifted.’ Benjamin Zephaniah

Infamous party monster Adam ‘Beyonce’ Lowe invites you down to the club and into the toilet cubicle. There’s plenty to tell and lots to share in this queer search for truth, knowledge and, above all, ecstasy. But are you ready for the comedown?

Thomas Glave was born in the Bronx and grew up there and in Kingston, Jamaica. While in Jamaica, Glave worked on issues of social justice, and helped found the Jamaica Forum for Lesbians, All-Sexuals, and Gays (J-FLAG). Glave has been nominated for a slew of awards and was winner of Lambda Literary Awards in 2005 and 2008. His most recent book, Among the Bloodpeople: Politics and Flesh, was published by Akashic Books in July 2013, and was recently named as a finalist for the 2014 Lambda Literary Award.

‘Glave is a gifted stylist . . . blessed with ambition, his own voice, and an impressive willingness to dissect how individuals actually think and behave.’ The New York Times Book Review

Dorothea Smartt Side afro by Robert TaylorDOROTHEA SMARTT
Dorothea reads a selection from her forthcoming collection, ‘Reader, I Married Him and Other Queer Goings On‘. The early selection is now available as a chapbook.

‘Smartt’s tonsorial twists and turns become all the more intriguing when you read her accomplished debut collection, ‘Connecting Medium’. One of the highlights is ‘5 Strands of Hair’, a spare sober piece that represents some profound socio-cultural observations like bullet points on a flip chart.’
