An Evening of Intergenerational LGBT Readers and Performers
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
1661 Napier Street
Readings and performances by Queer Elders and Youth. Readers are drawn from Youth for a Change (a youth advocacy group from Surrey) and Quirk-e (the queer imaging & riting kollective for elders).
Come hear them read new work about all things queer. These are works in progress as they collaborate on their new book project – an anthology under contract with international publisher, Peter Lang.
We’ll also be showing a sneak preview of digital videos made in our recent collaboration – mini documentaries about elder abuse in the LGBTQA community, filmed, written, and produced by queer youth and elders. This project was funded by the Council to reduce Elder Abuse.
