Writing poetry helped me realise I didn’t have to conform to gender norms

When Peter Scalpello started writing their debut poetry collection, they could never have known just how much they would discover about themselves along the way. Peter’s debut was published in March by Cipher Press, the queer UK-based publishing house that’s amplifying LGBT+ voices. Limbic is their latest find – Peter’s poetry explores chemsex, masculinity, queerness and sexual violence through the prism of their own lived experience. At its core, Limbic is an examination of trauma and memory – it interrogates the ways we remember past experiences that have chipped away at our sense of self.
