"Wild tongues cannot be tamed; they can only be cut out."
Tonight I will be reading from and responding to Gloria Anzaldúa's work at Wild Tongue, a reading of intersectional feminist literature and a zine launch. The event is hosted by the Loving Feminist Literature collective and will be held at Hares and Hyenas on Johnston Street in Fitzroy.
There are 14 readers in all, some of whom have also contributed to the Wild Tongue zine being launched about halfway through the show. Because of the numbers and because we want the event to move at a decent clip, we're all going to be doing short 5-minute readings. Having seen what everyone else is reading, it promises to be a very edifying, challenging and fun evening.
I'll be putting my reading up online after I perform it so that you can see what I've quoted and chase up the books and essays yourself if you are so inclined.
Tickets are available at the Fringe link above and also at the door but nobody will be turned away for lack of funds. Start time is 8pm sharp.
