LGBT contemporary poet Andrea Gibson brings her latest tour back to the Midlands on Thursday (Glee Club, Nottingham, 16 May).


An artful and nuanced look at gender, romance, loss and family, Lord Of The Butterflies is a show of protest.

While rioting against gun violence, homophobia and white supremacy, Andrea celebrates gender expansion, queer love and the will to stay alive.


Winner of the first ever Women Of The World Poetry Slam in 2008, Andrea remains one of the most highly regarded performers on the spoken-word poetry scene. She has authored four full-length collections of poems, an illustrated book of their most memorable quotes, and has also released seven albums.
