Radikal Queen is a slow-burn, a sensational and incandescent original.

Radikal Queen projects

Radikal Queen is Tyneside’s leading Black poet.
She is an award-winning cultural activist who has performed all over the UK, as well as  Spain, Central Africa, West Africa and extensively in the United States.


Her work spans the epic themes of cultural identity, Indigenous knowledge, Black liberation, Women’s Empowerment, Disability rights, Child protection and Queer Advocacy. As a revolutionary poet and musician, Radikal Queen speaks the Blues to music, and more.

Radikal Queen has learned how to fuse the beauty of Black music with the grassroots fight for planetary liberation. Her art fills a need for outrageous and unlicensed self expression.

Radikal Queen speaks to women whose sexy isn’t standardised, to children whose school lessons aren’t enough to clarify, and on behalf of anyone who has been marginalised.
