On Tuesday 25thOctober, poet and essayist William Keohane visited SETU to perform ‘Boxing Day,’ a 52-poem sequence that offers one poem for each week of the year. Each one offers a fragmentary glimpse into the experience of gender transition and taken together, the 52 poems present a narrative account of a year of change, apprehension, and grief. The event was organised by English lecturer Dr Christa de Brún and funded by the EDI office at SETU Waterford.

In this episode of the podcast, William and Christa join Jenny in studio to talk about the importance of this type of poetry work and how literature can challenge stereotypes and provide representation for marginalised groups. William also discusses his role in setting up the Trans Limerick Community (TLC) to support trans people in Limerick city and county.
