Revealing your truth and laying bare mind, body and soul through spoken word performance, on Episode 17 of the Bawdy Love Podcast.

When Andrea Gibson was a child learning to write, they watched their fingers grow with pencil calluses. Andrea was proud; they remember telling their mom, “My hand is changing shape to prove I’m a writer.” That writer has flourished. Today, Andrea has published their fifth book PANSY, headlines spoken-word poetry events and has work featured internationally.

In this episode, we discuss taking notice – of love, illness, war, class, capitalism, gender and beyond – and practice healing through writing.

More About Andrea Gibson

Andrea Gibson is not gentle with their truths. It is this raw fearlessness that has led them to the forefront of the spoken word movement– the first winner of the Women’s World Poetry Slam –Gibson has headlined prestigious performance venues coast to coast with powerful readings on war, class, gender, bullying, white privilege, sexuality, love, and spirituality.

In their most recent book, PANSY, Gibson balances themes of love, gender, politics, sexuality, illness, family and forgiveness with stunning imagery and a fierce willingness to delve into the exploration of what it means to truly heal. Each turn of the page represents both that which as been forgotten and that which is yet to be released. While this book is a rally cry for political action, it is also a celebration of wonder and longing and love.

Bawdy Love is a revolution, one full of people audacious enough to stand up and say “I am worthy of love as I am right here, right now, no exceptions. My body deserves to be seen, my voice deserves to be heard. I will not shrink. I will expand and thrive.”
