The Library is Open !

The poet Iain Morrison and myself were invited by Jennifer Williams to organise a drag queen poetry night in the Scottish Poetry Library, Edinburgh. I showed the video of the performance Fantôme for the first time, and I read Pissotière in full drag. Iain read his Drag Queen Poems, and Andy Emitt read the Poetry of RuPaul’s Drag Race via video call. This successful event, listed in the top 10 things to do by The Skinny, was the occasion to give words to drag queens, who are most known for lip syncing other people words than to express their own.
