This year we celebrate the extraordinary contributions of Queer Asian writers and musicians to Vancouver's rich cultural ecology. From C. E. Gatchalian's erotic interplay of language and silence to Larissa Lai's finely honed intersections of the personal and the political, topped by the quirky, plaintive wistfulness of singer/songwriter Aaron Chan, QUEERASIAN will be an evening of passion, poetry, celebration and resistance.
FEATURED ARTISTS INCLUDE:
C. E. Gatchalian, Hiromi Goto,Lydia Kwa, Larissa Lai, Proma Tagore and Rita Wong, with music by Aaron Chan and a short, sexy film called “Bend In the River (or Falling In Time).” Hosted by Vancouver actor and director Rick Tae.
