Queer/Literary Defiance!

May 20, 3:30 pm-5:30 pm

Cultural defiance has maintained Queer identity, keeping alive a culture rich in creativity, zest, and courage. In today’s political and social environment, when LGBTQ rights and legitimacy are again under attack, Queer cultural defiance is a bulwark against forcing the community back into hiding.

On Sunday, May 20th, five acclaimed Queer writers—poets, playwrights and novelists—will celebrate Queer/Literary Defiance. Each will read a short passage from their work, followed by a discussion of the role of defiance in their writing; how it shapes it, informs it, gives it fire. This award-winning lineup of authors represents a diversity of social and cultural experience in the Queer community. As writers, they distill those experiences into art.

Featuring Ann AptakerElla BoureauJP HowardJee Leong Koh, and Trace Peterson.
