Queer Becoming Of Age
September 26 @ 6:00 pm
To come out and to come of age—both are queer rituals that forever alter the ways we move through life. In this event, we propose that queer coming out/coming of age does not have one fixed origin story. Sometimes we come out (or in to ourselves) over and over again. This ritual of “becoming” queer follows us from youth to adulthood and is full of unexpected twists and turns. Readers will perform work that explore the many ways in which we become queer, which are at times humorous and traumatic, silly and profound, and everything in between. Part reading and part ritual, each writer will read original work followed by an offering of an imagined or past object to mark one passage of queer becoming in their lives. Let this reading and ritual mark one of many passages of our queer becoming!
