Roméo Desmarais III (he/him) is an established poet, musician, visual artist, and social acitivist living in London Ontario, Canada. His publication history includes the only Pride month feature in last year’s Oddball Magazine. Roméo is a 2Spirit/indigenous member of the Muskrat Métis community. When performing spoken word, he introduces himself by bellowing: “I…AM…RoMeO-HoMeO ô£ tHę MåRtïÃñS >{:)” –his pseudonym since 1991. He believes that when one of us is not free, none of us are free. * N O T A V A I L A B L E I N T H E U . S . A . is his graphic response (with a rich dollop of anti-capitalist sarcasm!) to the U.S. Supreme Court’s gut-wrenching decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade, displaying the patronizing insanity of controlling women’s bodies.
