Summary, etc.: 'Under my skin' asks a lot of questions, questions that demand answers: 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?
Subject: Canadian poetry.
Gay men > Canada.
Racism > Canada.
