Robyn Sidhu

Robyn Kaur Sidhu (she/he/they) is a Queer, mad, chronically ill, Punjabi-Canadian spoken word poet, born in Montreal, Quebec and raised in Brampton, Ontario. They are currently enrolled at McMaster University, where they pretend to know what they want to do with their life, and is pursuing a Bachelors in Peace Studies and Political Science.

They have had feelings publicly, and has performed them on national and international stages in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom. They have self published three mini length chapbooks, and will occasionally break out into poetry on the street. They are a director for the Voices of Today youth poetry festival, is the Co-chair Communications of SpeakNORTH, and a director of Hot Damn It’s a Queer Slam. They are also a teacher of consent, race and 2SLGBTQ+ identity to youth across the Greater Toronto Area. They are a poetry educator and love seeing youth use writing as a tool for healing.

They are trying to be the adult they always needed as a kid. They are also trying to be gentle with themself always and live life as radically tenderly as possible. You can find Robyn in vintage cardigans or also on the internet if that’s your thing @Robyn_Sidhu.
