This Just In… Under My Skin by Orville Lloyd Douglas

Under My Skin asks a variety of questions, such as: Why are young black gay men invisible in Canada’s queer and black communities? Do their lives really matter? How do young black men deal with the daily challenges of dealing with multiple oppressions in relation to our race and gender? Is Canada truly a multicultural nation? Why are the brothers dying due to gun violence on the streets of Toronto?

Under My Skin is a raw and passionate exploration of desire, power and difference in the Canadian landscape. Douglas’ poetry is visceral and emotionally compelling. The work embodies a profound yearning for love, tenderness and ethical recognition.” -- Sheila L. Cavanagh, York University professor and author of Queering Bathrooms: Gender, Sexuality and the Hygienic Imagination.
