I have written a number of commissioned poems. These include ‘1001 Nights’, composed for an event at the British Film Institute that celebrated works including Pasolini’s adaptation, The Flower of One Thousand and One Nights. My poem 'Antinous' was written for the British Museum, and was inspired by the bust of Hadrian's lover on display there.
I am involved in a collaboration with the composer Ricky Horscraft and the Actually Gay Men's Chorus called Seven Doors of Danny. This has seen me write the lyrics to seven songs that tell the story of a queer burglar from birth to death.
