'I Know Why The Gay Man Dances' is the debut collection of poetry by Mancunian poet, Joel Sadler-Puckering. It is about what happens when the spirit of freedom is taken from us. The loss of freedom comes in many forms and is not just a gay experience; it is an experience shared by many subjugated groups. These poems will take you on both a personal and political journey to explore the many ways that we, as human beings, might find our freedom compromised in modern life. How does it happen? Why does it happen? And perhaps most importantly, how can we try to understand and overcome it when it does happen? With a style influenced by Maya Angelou, if you're a fan of direct poetry and social commentary through verse, this collection will speak to your heart.
'Inky Black Woman' is the debut poetry collection by London Based artist, choreographer and poet, Mina Aidoo. In this collection, Mina explores themes of identity, the body and gender. Her work considers humanity's relationship with our environment, ourselves and our psyches. This poetry is for all those who are not afraid to play in the vast range of emotions that form the human experience.
