Giveaways, general queeriment, and lots of chances to meet and greet new and old friends will also occur!

Doors at 7 PM; show at 7:30 PM sharp. We're asking for a dollar at the door, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. All proceeds go directly to Rhizome Cafe (http://www.rhizomecafe.ca/).

Your hosts are Leah Horlick and Esther McPhee - more info on us, including what we're gonna call an "accessibility audit" on ourselves available here: http://litanyqueerreadingseries.tumblr.com/

OUR MANDATE:

Litany Reading Series aims to support and showcase emerging and established LGBT2QI writers through a quarterly reading series with an anti-oppressive framework. We're committed to radical inclusion in our series, recognizing that access to the world of writing, literacy, and even queerness continues to be limited. We acknowledge that we're writing and reading on unceded Coast Salish territories. We commit to holding our events in physically and financially accessible spaces, providing accessibility information and trigger warnings, and doing all we can to create a safer space -- bring your suggestions! Check your assumptions at the door; Litany is a body-positive, anti-racist, anti-sexist, and hella queer- and trans-positive event.
