The author of Bodymap, Love Cake and Consensual Genocide and the co-editor of The Revolution Starts At Home: Confronting Intimate Violence in Activist Communities, her writing has been widely anthologized. She is the co-founder of the queer people of colour arts incubator Mangos With Chili, a lead artist with Sins Invalid and co-founder of Toronto's Asian Arts Freedom School. In 2010 she was named one of the Feminist Press' 40 Feminists Under 40 Shaping the Future. Her first memoir, Dirty River, was published by Arsenal Pulp Press in fall 2015.


"It's a collection of poems that's a testament to love -- found in partnerships and within the self -- and how the body can be a political entity. You?ll cry through the gutsiest of poems, but will also feel renewed." --Chatelaine "This book is pure Piepzna-Samarasinha--tough and full of desire; it needs to be flaunted in all its glory." --Chelene Knight, Room Magazine? "These poems are a gift for your love for self, your love itself and everyone you love. It is rare that a poet priestess offers words that allow us to emerge reborn with dirt, glitter and tenderness... Revere it. Revel in it. Read it again and again!" --Alexis Pauline Gumbs, author, Eternal Summer of the Black Feminist Mind -
