Trans Vegas (Boys Don’t Cry – Boys Create!) @ Royal Northern College of Music
Jul 4 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Trans Vegas (Boys Don’t Cry – Boys Create!) @ Royal Northern College of Music | England | United Kingdom

18 years after the watershed cinema moment of ‘Boys Don’t Cry’, Hotpencil Press and Trans Creative present ‘Boys Don’t Cry – Boys Create’, an evening of Trans Masculinity, reclaimed and re-spun.

For the last 18 years trans and gender nonconforming artists have been telling our own stories, performing our own narratives, demanding to be seen. This new show explores ways to show our bodies and our worlds as they are lived. Not through a mainstream lens! Not with fetishisation! Not with death and destruction! All hail the new 21st Century Boys!

Artists include Husk, Elijah W Harris with Tallulah Rose Haddon, Jamie Hale, Krishna Istha and more tba.

Following the performance event Zorian Clayton of BFI Flare will host a panel to discuss the legacy of ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ and the trans masculine experience on stage and screen over the past two decades.

Event curated by Dr B. and Serge of Hotpencil Press (‘There Is No Word For It’, ‘The (Trans) Mangina Monologues‘, ‘The Butch Monologues’).

Supported by Arts Council England and Superbia at Manchester Pride.

QUEER MIGRANT TAKEOVER: DEEPER ROUTES @ Rich Mix
Oct 6 all-day
QUEER MIGRANT TAKEOVER: DEEPER ROUTES @ Rich Mix

A one-day festival celebrating co-existence, the historical contributions of migrant and refugee artists and contemporary performance makers that are exploring their migrant and queer identities in their art.

Deeper Routes is an artistic intervention, a celebration and a space for co-existence of multi-national queers and their allies who resist today’s ‘hostile’ political environment. The festival dives head-first into nuances of belonging and presence and will see artists, activists and DJs coming together for the first time to explore all of these concepts together.
