James Summer, City of Victoria Youth Poet Laureate, with worship associate Casey Stainsby –
Poetry is an amazing way to communicate our experiences and connect with others. LGBTQ+ Pride season is about expressing ourselves and being proud of who we are and who we love.
We’ll be joined by a very special guest, Victoria’s 2021 Youth Poet Laureate James Summer, who will share some of his poetry and guide us in exploring our own creative voices.
James has been involved with the poetry community since 2017 when he joined Victoria High School’s slam poetry club. His poetry’s content contains the most raw and passionate experiences he faces.
Although hard to face, James hopes that it will connect with youth around him, and that they will feel heard just as he did when he was going through high school surrounded by poets.
