Incite@ThePhoenix – Celebrating the B in LGBT for Bi Visibility month

Celebrating Bi-Visibility month. An evening showcasing LGBTQ+ poetry as diverse as we are in an iconic West End venue and hosted by LGBT Poet Laureate. Guest poets:

Dan Webber – Wise and witty words about the way we live.

Bella Cox – Beautifully brave blunt poetry about modern bisexuality.

Followed by our popular open-mic section. A social, cultural event with a flirty vibe.

Free entry with retiring collection during the evening.

Queer Kiss-mas

It’s the festive season, Hip hip hooray!

Now’s a good time to be happy and Gay

This time of year can be lonely and cold

So get out those glad-rags, be daring. Be bold.

 

Try a new lipstick, buy a sprig of mistletoe

Tune into the season, its ringing Go Gay Go!

Dry clean that jacket. Put on that bow tie

If you feel like snogging, don’t think why?

 

Christmas time can be stressful and fraught

Overspending, overeating, doing what you ought

So relax and smile a little, look around you, it’s free.

Enjoy the many pleasures of our Community

 

Be kind, be nice, it is the seasonal mission

Spread love and goodwill, I give you my permission

Just one more thing to say before I go

I wish you a Merry Xmas, with lots of Yo, Ho, Ho!

The Caravan Club

Who cares that they hate us

Out there, on the street.

Here we have a place,

We can secretly meet.

 

We can dress how we like,

Just relax and enjoy

Without fear or shame,

Be a girl or a boy.

 

We adopt new names,

Play gender games

Love outside the Law

At the Caravan Club.

 

It has to be said

I feel quite Queer

I wonder if its because

Lady D. is sitting near.

 

I wouldn’t say no,

Shouldn’t like to miss

An opportunity if it arose

And, she offered me a kiss

 

I’m feeling, oh so Queer!

On a cushion I shall lie

Perhaps she might come over

And we’ll kiss & coo & sigh.

 

I love it here,

It’s naughty, safe & fun.

We can be ourselves

No need to hide or run.
