Monique Gordon (Binky)

Monique Gordon is a Poet, Author, Performance Artist, and Activist.  Her interactive creative arts performances include The Philadelphia Fringe Festival, Chris’ Corner Books for Kids & Teens, First Person Festival, Philadelphia University, The Kelly Writers House, and other venues geared towards various demographics. Her participation on WXPN’s World Live Café in February 2001 and the documentary Life Stories from Philadelphia (1992-2007) launched workshops and interviews on managing Type 1 Diabetes. As a result of a viewer watching a rerun of Life Stories in 2003, she came to Monique’s aid. Recognizing that Monique was having a low blood sugar reaction, she knew just what to do. The Good Samaritan’s deed led to a dual interview by columnist Michael Klein of the Philadelphia Inquirer titled Thanks for Watching, where Monique and Kim shared their story.

Monique’s works-in progress include articles on Type 1 Diabetes, the Binky book series, and a medley of short stories.  She also recently launched Endo’s blog, dedicated to her Chihuahua/Terrier.  Monique rescued Endo, and without any prior service training the lovable K-9 alerts Monique when she is having a diabetic insulin reaction, and awakens her at 3 a.m. and 6 a.m. to test blood sugar.

  1. This website is intended to inform, inspire, provoke thought, and evoke a smile. And sometimes there’s nothing more comforting than reading a traditional book, newspaper, or trade magazine. Feel free to leave your post and imagination!

  2. Monique you are sooo talented! What a pleasure it is to enter the wonderful world of you, Endo and Binky! I’ll be sure to visit often and let the gang know what you’re up to. Peace and Many Blessings, carla
