Lord of the Butterflies is a giant ode to love, in all of its messy forms. The love of that lives in the queer community. The complicated love we share with our biological families. The terrifying yet life-affirming love we share with our intimate partne

Why See Andrea Gibson?

Special EventsPublic Speaking

Spoken word artist & Activist Andrea Gibson

In an era of fake news and incendiary tweets, words can cleave nations in two and sow the seeds of social media meltdown. But a new generation of poets seek to reclaim the written and spoken word, upholding its emotional power and masterfully commenting topical issues with nuance and artfulness. Once such poet is Boulder, Colorado's Andrea Gibson, a wordsmith and activist whose works explore gender, love, social reform and the struggles that the LGBQT face. 

Gibson's soul-stirring stanzas bound from the page and onto the stage during a special live tour promoting the release of their* fifth poetry compilation Lord Of The Butterflies. Winner of the 2008 World Poetry Slam, Gibson's words are just as captivating when performed live as they are in printed format. Raw, fearless and unafraid to a whirlwind of kinetic energy and emotion, Gibson holds nothing back when tackling issues including war, class, bullying, white privilege and sexuality and the nature of being American. When you encounter them from Gibson directly, their poems take on a deeper resonance. 

*Andrea Gibson is gender fluid and uses gender neutral pronouns.
