As a part of A Dash of Lavender: Celebrating LGBTQ+ history month with Queer Botany, there will be a poetry reading at Chelsea Physic Garden. Following a long line of creative queers before us, Queer Botany will host a safe creative space to share writings about nature and plants from a queer perspective.

There will be 3 poets, Linden (they/them), Tom McLaughlin (he/him), and SZ Shao (she/her), a host, Bella Cox (she/they), an open mic, and time to mingle. You can participate to the Open mic by completing the sign up sheet provided at the event. Open mic participants will be called by order of sign up and can read 1 piece of 2 minutes or under.
