Join Chris Tse, Ruby Solly and AJ Fitzwater to celebrate the breadth and diversity within Aotearoa’s rainbow literary community.
When reviewing Out Here: An Anthology of Takatāpui and LGBTQIA+ Writers from Aotearoa Professor Paul Millar noted the diversity of our society is being increasingly realised and celebrated, even in our parliament, but the lists of books showcasing queer writing were, until now, in danger of failing to reflect this.
Out Here goes a long way to redressing this lack and to exploring the vast experiences of being queer (and paying tribute to how people express it). As well as reading from their published works, the panel members will each nominate a queer text (book, film etc) that is important to them and share their own stories. Chaired by Chris Tse.
