Gaysir intervjuet meg i forbindelse med lanseringen av
Poetry Is Possible. Lanseringen var et fellesprosjekt. Venner, som også jobber med tekst og historier på ulike vis, valgte et dikt hver som de fremførte. Også de er kort intervjuet.

On 1st June 2018 Født Fri was launched, a foundation that works for freedom and against negative social control. The foundation is led by Shabana Rehman Gaarder, a Norwegian Pakistani woman with many years of experience as a human rights and animal rights activist as well as performer.
I was invited to perform some poetry, and chose to do an excerpt of
