Friends Performing From Poetry Is Possible

Poetry Is Possible: Selected Poems was launched during Oslo Pride 2018 at Melahuset with the help of various artist friends. They each chose a poem from the collection that spoke to them and performed it at the event. Check out their performances here.

Love Is Possible

“On Thursday 6th September 2018, I woke up in Verona, Italy, in the city of Romeo and Juliet. The trip was a gift from my mother. There are many kinds of love, of course, romantic, motherly, friendly, social, political, divine.”

Read my celebration of love and of the Indian Supreme Court verdict that protects all love, queer and straight, a verdict that coincided with my birthday.

I was invited to perform some poetry, and chose to do an excerpt of
