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!

Looking back, Looking forward: The legacy of Takataapui/LGBQTI+ writers.

The Saturday Night Special is a celebration of the new groundbreaking anthology, Out Here: An Anthology of Takatāpui and LGBTQIA+ writers from Aotearoa. It is a birthday party of sorts: a celebration of our past and an imagining of our future through the words and careers of writers current and to come.

This book is a rare milestone, and tonight’s event provides an opportunity for reflection through the words and meditations of our special panellists. Chair Joanne Drayton leads a discussion on this landmark publication with its editors Chris Tse and Emma Barnes, while some of its contributors, including Michael Giacon, Gina Cole, Pelenakeke Brown and Ruby Solly will read from their work.

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