QUEER JOY: IN WORDS
Join Bold Mellon Collective for a cosy evening at Purley Library – Queer Joy: In Words – as we take a look into a new multimedia documentary project Queer Joy: In Conversation and enjoy some beautiful queer poetry and storytelling by Toni Murphy, Lyvonne The Don and Naomi Wood. Get involved with some free writing, sharing and a plethora of recommended LGBTQIA+ literature!
Toni Murphy is a London based, multi-disciplinary creative and storyteller. Her work centres the experiences of BIPOC with a focus on alternative lifestyles and dispelling cultural taboos.
Lyvonne The Don is a multifaceted Black queer woman of Afro Caribbean descent. She combines her love of laughter, art, music and storytelling through various mediums – DJing, writing, acting & storytelling to name a few. She is passionate about being her most authentic self & creating a community of like minded people as she goes.
Naomi is a multi-disciplinary performance artist merging the circus with storytelling and poetry. They create pieces that incite riotous acts of joyful disobedience celebrating empowerment and rebellion.
