Heather Beamish

Heather is an artist, inspirational speaker, activist, and poet. Due to her multiracial ethnicity (Jamaican, Metis, and Irish), charismatic Christian roots, female gender identity, and queer orientation, in her poems, you will encounter flows that speak to the variety of intersections that she lives out of. 

Heather recognizes that throughout history, difference has divided, isolated and distorted our connection with others. When we see how Christ celebrates diversity, making room for all of the varying colors of the rainbow at his table, the invitation is that we too could faithfully love others at our tables of difference. Heather envisions a world where all people have equitable access to holistic healing and growth in spiritual community. She has actively committed to creating a space that prioritizes exploration, programming, public events, and arts for all people, especially Queer and Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) through an initiative called Mother Mary’s House.

During the day Heather works as a Marketing Coordinator for a boutique events firm and spends her nights writing poetry, hosting queer slams, volunteering at a Gay-Christian organization and exploring the city with the beautiful people in her life.
