Poetry of Pride, Love and Rebellion

Hello! This week, we celebrate Pride month with Jackie Kay and I'm reading poetry on growing old disgracefully and how it's never too late for love - and are you sure you want to spend any tme at all dusting?



To celebrate Pride month, here's Scotland's National Poet (2016-2021) Jackie Kay talking about her early life.


And here she is reading her thank you poem for all frontline staff.



And although Liverpool's Pride Festival has been cancelled this year, you can still join in online.





And, I meant to say that the author of the poem Dust if You Must is unknown.

If you have a poem you've written that you'd like to be read out please send it to: psswellbeingcentres@pss.org.uk

Bless you Tracy for sharing some of Jackie Kay. She's felt like a go to friend and ally over many years. Also fortunate to go see her a few years back . Gorgeous voice, woman, lesbian and of course bright, funny and beautiful poet. Can ye tell I'm slightly in love with her. 😁😁. Happy Pride one and all. 🌈

Thank

Saw Jackie Kay live at the Open Eye Gallery a couple of years ago, she was absolutely fab, loved her poetry and talk about her life. I also Liked the growing old poem as well I want to be a rebel granny and be a bit more outrageous lol
