Artist : Leo George

Poet, artist and activist

Leo George, by most accounts, is an utterly delightful person and has found entering the world of spoken word to be a joyful experience. They find freedom in creativity and performance poetry has proved to be an excellent vehicle for being loudly queer and autistic. Leo George has been featured in a few anthologies and has self published a pamphlet and a few poetry zines. Leo’s poetry is about the personal and the political, full of lyrical language with alliterative repetitive sounds in bursts and echoes and slipped into the in-between. Find yourself getting sucked in and hit in the feelings. If you're lucky they might slip in one or two poems about cats to take the edge off. Or they’ll end their set with controversial opinions about peanut butter.
