We’re here, we’re queer, we’re naked! Get ready to fuck the cis-tem, the patriarchy and the heteronormative power structures that be, one piece of literature at a time. Gird your loins – it’s Naked Girls Reading: The Pride Edition!
The show is exactly what is sounds like – completely naked women reading literature aloud. It’s a sexy book club, a sapphic slumber party, a sumptuous and scandalous event sure to arouse, educate and entertain all at once. Come along to experience the ancient and beautiful art of storytelling – and also, you know, boobs.
This month we have an all-star cast of superstar queerdos and weirdos joining us from across the country!
Jean Puawananga Sergent: The Sinister Sociologist
Adam David Rohe: A silver-tongued rogue
Sam Douglas: an adorable activist and patupaiarehe
And hosted by the adorable Hugo Grrrl: Drag King.
These unclad, clever queers have picked their favourite bits of iconic queer literature to recite for you. Expect excerpts of everything LGBTQIA – from Harvey Milk to Judith Butler, from coming out stories to Kate Bornstein, raunchy lesbian smut to some handy anal sex tips. We’ll be sauntering through the literary landscape of all things camp in an evening. It’s a night not to be missed.
And be sure to check out our cocktail special on the night – “PROUD AS” PUNCH!
$20 on Eventfinda
$25 on the door
and $35 VIP – front row seats, at a table with a complimentary glass of bubbles. (Perfect for those who might like to sketch the girls throughout the night. Or those who just want to get in the proverbial ‘splash zone’.)
And remember, you can’t spell ‘literature’ without ‘t’ and ‘a’!
