Proud:  Stories, Poetry and Art on the theme of Pride

Dean Atta and Caroline Bird perform, alongside young poets from Southend.

Sat 30 March 

7.30pm

 

Join poets Dean Atta and Caroline Bird for an evening of LGBTQ+ poetry performances to celebrate the publication of PROUD, an anthology of writing, poems and art for teens by LGBTQ+ creatives, compiled by Juno Dawson.   Aspiring young performers from Southend will also take the mic to share aloud their own creative writing and poems on the theme of pride.

A stirring, bold and moving anthology of stories and poetry by YA authors and illustrators responding to the broad theme of pride, PROUD is a rainbow-riotous celebration of LGBTQ+ talent. Each piece of writing has an accompanying illustration by an artist identifying as part of the LGBTQ+ community. PROUD is a thought-provoking, funny, and emotional read that uplifts and empowers LGBTQ+ youth and opens the hearts and minds of young allies. Published 7 March by Stripes
