CELEBRATING QUEER INDIGENOUS VOICES WEEK 2011: POETRY AND SONG BY NICOLE TANGUAY AND ROBBIE MADSEN + A CLOSING SONG BY DAWNIS KENNEDY

Nicole Tanguay is a word warrior.  She takes seriously the struggles of all women, in particular Aboriginal women and women of colour, in this patriarchal, racist, colonial society.  

Her pen is her sword and she doesn’t hold back!

Listen to, and enjoy, Nicole Tanguay read her poem Picture This from Yellow Medicine Review Fall 2010: International Queer Indigenous Voices. 

Robbie Madsen is a sweetheart!  A soft-spoken, kind and gentle soul, Robbie sings against injustice and celebrates life through song.

Meeting with Robbie to record him singing was one of the most pleasurable moments in my history of running blackcoffeepoet.com.  We shot take after take; took photos; laughed a lot; and sat for a good while sharing stories.

Enjoy Robbie sing his brave song Liquid Courage about partner abuse in the queer community. 

This last week, Celebrating Queer Indigenous Voices, was the closing to Aboriginal History Month 2011 on blackcoffeepoet.com.  It’s an honour to have a closing song from Anishinaabe Kwe Dawnis Kennedy.

Tune in to Black Coffee Poet Monday July 4, 2011 for a review of “Underground Inspirations: Parkdale Writers Zine”.
