Slam Poetry.

I’m not going to lie – I love slam poetry. One of my favorite memories from college is a slam poetry night from queer and trans performers. And I honestly spend what is probably too much time going down the rabbit hole of slam poem videos on YouTube.

What I love about slam poetry is the honesty and vulnerability from the performers. There are poems from survivors of abuse and rape, others talking about anxiety and OCD, others describing driving while black. These poems can often be an incredible window into people’s lives and experiences and they’re incredibly beautiful.
