Trans Poet Ashley Miles

 
 

In January I had the honour of sitting down with Ashley Miles. At the time of record she considered herself Non-Binary and Gender Fluid.  We met through a referral by our mutual friend, poet, mother, and all around awesome person Amanda Hiebert. Ashley created a poem for our Issue 3 and we discuss this work, poetry at large, her experience of the gender issue, politics, heck... we discuss it all. I want to thank her for working with us to keep building this Perspectives movement in the city. 
In the spirit of non-binary, Thomas Thomas's amazing track Gracious Hostappears in its entirety at the end. And thank you, always, to my incredible producer Kyle Marshall and Media Lab YYC
