Golden Tongue enabled me to feel proud of being brown. It spoke to the anger, the joy, the indifference, of being a South Asian woman………..Golden Tongue was a space that placed South Asian women at the centre of the narrative. Most importantly, it was a night that was long overdue.

The YoniVerse is a poetry collective of South Asian womxn, for South Asian womxn. They believe in owning their narratives, in celebrating the diversity of their diaspora and identities. Most of all, they believe in being loud.
