@itsakirby’s book release for This Is Where I Get Off at his own @knifeforkbook in Kensington Market, blowing minds (and more), reminding a room full of people spanning worlds & generations why he’s so beloved of them all, myself among those lucky to have crossed tracks with this most encouraging, sincere and feel-good diamond of a man. Beneath the laundry list of bacchanal (mesmerizing to the most denied voyeur) it serves as both a tender eulogy for a bygone Toronto (and Anywhere) and a remedy for a sexually terrified, polarized, loveless and re-repressed 2019, absolutely unprotected in word and deed. Much love, Kirby. #jeffkirby #thisiswhereigetoff #queerpoetry #permanentsleeppress #torontonightlife *Find TIWIGO at Knife Fork Book or see @permanentsleeppress, who killed it again with this one.
