2nd Hong Kong Queer Literary and Cultural Festival Culture

2nd Hong Kong Queer Literary and Cultural Festival

Project by 女同學社 Nu Tong Xue She

Nu Tong Xue She (NTXS) hope that through showcasing books relevant to gender and sexuality issues, organizing activities such as book readings, seminars and sharing sessions, book fair, booths for LGBT-friendly organizations and a cozy reading corner for visitors during the Festival, a friendly and open environment for the general public to understand, explore and discuss the various facets of gender and sexuality could be created. In recent years, tension and even hostility between different social groups in Hong Kong has been growing stronger, pulling people farther apart as they uphold their own beliefs and bash those with differing opinions. The burning need for conversation is apparent. We would therefore like to make “Dialogue” the theme of the 2017 Festival. We hope that through reading, participants of the Festival can listen to, contemplate and respond to various issues related to gender and sexuality, to engage in a dialogue with themselves, family, friends and the society, to exchange knowledge and then to rethink the various possibilities of LGBT movement. Dates:Friday to Sunday, 17-19 February, 2017 Time:12:00 noon to 7:00 p.m Venue:Central Courtyard, Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre (JCCAC)
