The Real Poems

Written by: Robert McQueen

Cast: Robert McQueen

When our world went into lockdown in March of 2020, the air outside my apartment was suddenly still and my calendar was suddenly empty.

From inside that still~emptiness I sat at my kitchen table and began to write out my experiences as a young queer man, living between Vancouver and New York City during the AIDS epidemic of the 1980’s and 90’s.

The Real Poems is spoken witness to the joy of youth, discovery and wild adventure. It is memorial to the lives of colleagues, lovers and friends lost.
