This event has probably been and gone!
1:00pm – 2:00pm International Guest Quinn Eades
Australian trans poet Quinn Eades comes to Auckland to talk about difference, change and their book of poetry. A brilliant performer, Quinn will provide an afternoon of entertainment you will never forget.
‘I am at the Queensland Poetry Festival and Samoan poet Tusiata Avia asks what collection of molecules am I and I think about queer kinship and how do I trace my ancestors? Where is my lineage? My lineage is books, and dance floors, and documentaries – my lineage is not in my blood. It’s in Kathy Acker and Leslie Feinberg and Derek Jarman. That guy at Fair Day with a ‘MASC 4 MASC’ t-shirt on. It’s in protest signs. It’s in the slurs that we take and turn into love letters (faggot, queer, dyke, trannie, pervert, homo).’
Introduced by Courtney Sina Meredith
