Pick of the month: July
Read the review of Milkman
“At the time, age eighteen, having been brought up in a hair-trigger society where the ground rules were – if no physically violent touch was being laid upon you, and no outright verbal insults were being levelled at you, and no taunting looks in the vicinity either, then nothing was happening, so how could you be under attack from something that wasn’t there? At eighteen I had no proper understanding of the ways that constituted encroachment.”
“A cow looks out to sea, dreaming of a life that involves grass.”
“Be a person with knowledge, not just opinions.”
Poetry on love, abuse, healing, sex, shame, and the stolen history of the queer community.
