This Poem’s for You is a show where we learn the story behind a poem, meet the person who inspired it, and surprise them with a new, original poem, written on the spot. The five-part series highlights the work of Pride Poets–a troupe of LGBTQ+ poets led by West Hollywood’s City Poet Laureate Brian Sonia Wallace. Since 2019, Pride Poets have written hundreds of original poems for people like you in person at Pride events, and safely throughout the pandemic on a poetry hotline. No matter where you're at in your life, there's a poem for that, and this poem's for you.
