happy #lesbiandayofvisibility

It just so happens that today is Lesbian Day of Visibility. What a great day to be publishing Kate Foley‘s new poetry collection, A Gift of Rivers.

A Gift of Rivers charts meeting, marriage and migration, in an extended love letter to Kate’s wife Tonnie.

Now, I didn’t know that today was Lesbian Day of Visibility when I planned the publication date, sometimes things just happen like that. But why not get visible in your local bookshop by going in and asking for this lovely book?

Although I am wearing my A Gift of Rivers T-shirt to celebrate, there are no events planned for today, having already done a reading at Gay’s the Word

(more videos available on YouTube!)

and the launch is 1st May 7pm at Waterstone’s Amsterdam. Everyone welcome.

Other readings in the UK are in the offing and details will follow shortly.

Happy publication day, Kate!
