Contemporary LGBT Poet, Andrea Gibson will be touring in the UK in May 2019.
Winner of the first ever Women of the World Poetry Slam in 2008, Andrea Gibson remains one of the most captivating performers in the spoken word poetry scene today. Known for pulling hearts out of chests to either wrench or kiss, Gibson has authored four full-length collections of poems, an illustrated book of their most memorable quotes (Take Me With You, Penguin 2018), and has released seven beloved albums. Gibson regularly sells out 500+ capacity standing room only venues to eager audiences,mouthing along every word, further popularizing the art form and creating a space for each person in the room to feel, and to heal.
In a fierce oscillation between activism and love, Andrea Gibson’s newest literary triumph, released Nov 2018, ‘Lord of the Butterflies’ is a masterful showcase from the renowned poet whose writing and performances have captured the hearts of millions. An artful and nuanced look at gender, romance, loss, and family, this is also a show of protest. While rioting against gun violence, homophobia, and white supremacy, Gibson celebrates gender expansion, queer love, and the will to stay alive. Each emotion in ‘Lord of the Butterflies’ is deft and delicate, resting within imagery heavy enough to sink the heart, while giving the body wings to soar.
