Under my Skin
Under my Skin by Orville Lloyd Douglas
Orville Lloyd Douglas is a writer and social activist. His writing examines image versus reality of tolerance and multiculturalism in Canada from the perspective of a young, gay, black man. His poetry has been published in various literary journals and anthologies across Canada; and his journalism has appeared in publications such as the Toronto Star, Xtra, Word Magazine, Colorlines, Amoi, and the Guardian. His poetry has received critical acclaim from George Elliot Clarke, who described Douglas' first collection, You don't Know Me (TSAR, 2005), as "bold and brash," and Ginbergesque in "the same pell-mell rush of ideas and images that drives Howl."
Douglas resides in Brampton, Ontario.
