REVERB: A Queer Reading Series
November 24, 2016
REVERB: A Queer Reading Series aims to support and showcase emerging and established LGBT2QI writers through a quarterly reading series with an anti-oppressive framework. We believe that writing is a radical act that can transform dominant narratives about whose lives and loves are important and valued, and that sharing that writing can empower, inspire and transform ourselves and our communities.
All our writers self-identify on a spectrum of queerness that centres trans and femme experiences.
Check your assumptions at the door; REVERB is a body-positive, anti-racist, anti-sexist, and hella queer- and trans-positive event.
Readers for REVERB this November are Hasan Namir, Jane Shi, Cicely-Belle Blain, RJ Edwards, Listen Chen, and Kyla Jamieson!
