Andrea Gibson | The Year of No Grudges
Colorado's new poet laureate Andrea Gibson takes the stage to illuminate and heal through raw, vulnerable spoken word poetry.
A pioneering LGBTQ voice, Andrea discusses poetry's power, the courage growth requires, and their guiding ethos that authenticity matters more than suffering. Despite fear, their immersive performances resonate deeply, changing hearts and making listeners feel less alone. In recent years, they have been very public about their cancer journey, not to draw attention to their mortality, but to help others appreciate life's brevity and feel the urgent call to truly live.
This stirring conversation reaffirms poetry's power to reveal our common humanity.
