Join us to hear from LGBTQI+ writers about the writing that shaped them

About this event

UPDATE: In light of the Omicron outbreak and the cancellation of Auckland Pride, and in the interest of keeping our community safe, the 2022 Samesame but Different Festival will now take place online, including this event. You can still register via Eventbrite, and if you have already reserved a place in any of our events, we will make sure to send you the link so that you can enjoy the online version. Thank you for your understanding and we hope that you will still join us to hear from our fantastic LGBTQI+ writers and creatives!

Many of us have had a defining moment as readers gripped by, an author or book that spoke to and resonated with us. At this year’s Friday Night Gala our wonderful line-up of writers will discuss the LGBTQI+ writing that has shaped and influenced them. They will continue this legacy by writing about the work that has been important to them as writers.

Flash fiction writer Jack Remiel Cottrell is joined by poet Rebecca Hawkes, writer and curator Tendai Mutambu and poet essa may ranapiri. Prepare yourself for a night of new writing that will inspire you – to read, to write or maybe just to live a little more loudly. Chaired by Rhion Munro. Refreshments will be available before this event, from 7pm.

This event is part of the 2022 Auckland Pride Festival. See the full programme at aucklandpride.org.nz
