Next week, the Coming Out Monologues touch down in Calgary. The 7th iteration of this popular event will be held at the downtown John Dutton library theatre March 16, 17, & 18. Doors open at 7:30 pm, and the shows begin at 8:00.
The Coming Out Monologues celebrates diverse local stories from our queer community. Most people who perform have little to no performance experience, and are generously coached and supported to become stage ready. Tickets and info can be found: here.
Next week also, the Calgary Gay History project heads to the University of Victoria, to take part in Moving Trans History Forward 2016 conference. We look forward to immersing ourselves in trans history and trans activism connecting Calgary to these larger conversations. We will be in Vancouver for a few days post conference. If you know any former Calgarians who we should interview while we are present, please let us know – we would love to meet them.
And if that is not enough happening next week, Friday, March 18th, we have the final instalment of It’s Getting Drafty in Here, and the development of the play: 69 Legislating Love and the Everett Klippert story at Loft 112 at 5 PM. So you have lots of opportunities for queer culture and history next week. See you out there.
