QueerFM featured guests: Ash Winters an emerging Toronto-based poet/Joshua Ongcol a queer, Filipinx multidisciplinary artist

8:00am - 10:00am

Ash Winters is an emerging Toronto-based poet. Queer and sober, their work navigates the intersections of addiction, identity, and trauma. Growing up queer in small-town Ontario gave Winters a chance to develop a lavish sense of humour and deep respect for empathy, both of which come through in their work. They graduated with their BA in English from Lakehead University in 2010. Their poetry has recently appeared in Existere and Open Minds Quarterly. Run Riot is their first book of poetry.

Social media: JOSHONGCOL
Josh is interested in the ways tenderness manifests in my body, and its receptivity to deep patterns, cycles and undercurrents. With this, Josh hopes to unravel the narrative of being a part of the Filipnx diaspora; specifically of intergenerational exchange, resilience, autonomy, queerness and spirituality.
