Saturday 9 February
11:00am – 12:00pm 
Masculinities – What is it and what does it look like in prose?

Authors and a performer discuss masculinity in terms of their work. Nicholas Sheppard’s novel Broken Play explores the tensions of being a gay All Black: can a queer be masculine? Mika’s sensational life crossing boundaries has been chronicled in I have loved me a man; Brendaniel Weir’s first novel Tane’s War describes a gay wartime romance and its aftermath, while Robert Tennent, aged 19, has self-published Come Back to Bed, a book of photographs documenting his tentative rediscovery of sex after the trauma of rape. What is it to be male?

Chaired by queer poet and the most closely followed arts journalist in Aotearoa, David Herkt.
