An extraordinary panel of local and international queer people of colour: iconic trans mover and shaker Georgina Beyer, author, performance poet and activist Sonya Renee Taylor and queer indigenous creatives Pati Solomona Tyrell and Manu Vaeatangitau (FAFSWAG) discuss their writing, art and activism. How do they get comfortable in their own skins? Where are they on this journey? How does this affect their work? Expect rainbow sparks to fly at this talanoa with award-winning playwright, Victor Rodger. Stay on afterwards for casual readings, open mic and some mixing & mingling! Devised by guest programmer, Tusiata Avia.
