After helping Nico Wilkinson feed sunflower seeds to the two resident goats of the Quaill Club in Colorado Springs, we sat down with a lot to talk about.
Nico, 25, works as a community organizer, poet, publisher, and spoken word performance artist who rattles cages, sparks laughs and loves to write about love. Among other things.
They sat with Humanitou in the living room of the Quaill Club, a homestead cooperative of queer artists, and talked about non-binary identity and the complicated nature of humanity. We talked about poetry, mental health, politics and getting close to the truth.
Nico’s insights are powerful and well-considered. They are delivered with an unapologetic authenticity. Meet Nico Wilkinson.
