Bi+ Lines Launch @ The Portal Bookshop
A launch celebrating the first ever anthology of bi+ poets, Bi+ Lines.
Hosted by the book’s editor and poet Helen Bowell, at this event in beautiful York we will hear from contributors Freya Bantiff and Ruth Yates as they explore in-betweenness. Published by LGBTQ+ press fourteen poems, the anthology collects new poems by more than 40 poets, ranging from well-known to brand new voices from around the world. Themed around the idea of in-betweenness, these poems look at love and acceptance, at biphobia and belonging, at families and trust, and at how we can use poetry to express our desires, fears, and hopes.
