In celebration of National Poetry Month, we have put together a “poetry reading” to make everyone’s day(s) a little brighter during this stressful time. These poets have generously donated their time and voices to the cause. The video will be available April 22, 2020.

In the meantime, you can get to know our featured poets. Check out their social media and author websites below. Our poets have nominated charitable organizations you can support this month.

We would like you to consider donating to The Trevor Project. Check out their research report on the “Implications of COVID-19 for LGBTQ Youth Mental Health & Suicide Prevention” and the range of support services they provide to LGBTQ youth throughout the pandemic.
