Description

Sat 30 March 7.30pm

Proud: Stories, Poetry and Art on the theme of Pride - Dean Atta and Caroline Bird perform, alongside young poets from Southend.

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
