Trans Poetry Slam at MSWPF 2019

Calling trans and gender diverse poets!

Have you got some Words to say in 2 minutes?

Would you like to see some other TGD poets also make Words?

Would you like to use your Words to win cash dollars?

In a world that never seems to have enough space for us, where we must always moderate ourselves, so that others can tolerate us, we are claiming a place that has always been a home for us.

A poetry slam for trans and gender diverse poets, part of the 2019 Melbourne Spoken Word & Poetry Festival, which runs from July 12 to 28. See mswpf.com.au for the program of over 60 events.

Produced by Theodore Murray & Pippin Latham.
