We think Andrea Gibson, an award-winning poet and activist, is pretty rad. Her poetry focuses on some topics that are important to PSSC and the folks we work with: social reform, the impact of sexual assault, and the challenges faced by the LGBTQ communities, just to name a few.

Check out a couple of her performances! Blue Blanket focuses on the impact of sexual assault and I Sing the Body Electric touches on many important subjects, one of which is suicide.

Andrea Gibson is curating an anthology that is currently accepting poetry submissions. The anthology is “We Will be Shelter” and will contain works that raise awareness, encourage critical self-reflection, and inspire action that supports communities in creating a more socially just world. Folks can submit one to three poems that are no more than two pages long. For details and instructions check out the website:
