Victor Billione Walker

A singer, poet and writer, Victor Billione Walker (pronounced bil-LEE-yon) is one of Detroit’s most important people to keep an eye on. He is the author of several books, including his most recent poetic play the Birth of Mars that examines masculinity in America, and No Tea. No Shade, a short novel set in Detroit about a gay newspaper editor nearing 40 who struggles with coming out.??

Billione’s thought provoking work touches on various subjects related to being a Detroit native, queer experiences and examining masculinity. He recently joined the board of the SASHA Center as Male Advocacy Ambassador, and identifies as a sexual assault survivor. Billione is currently completing work on his 6th collection of poetry about his life as a Detroiter entitled Grand Boulevard, expected to be released late 2014.??
