Transpose: Christmas Edition
December 11, 2011 § 6 Comments
My lord, that time of year is upon us again. So, with much waving of arms and fluttering of jazz hands, I present to you – the Christmas edition of Transpose.
Sunday December 18th, 5pm – 11pm
£5 on the door
Comedy, Music, Poetry, Art, Cupcakes, Flirting, Dancing, Joy
And where is the money going to this time? Well, what with Christmas being a particularly painful time of year for so many QUILTBAG people, vis-à-vis families, I thought it made sense to pick a charity doing its best to make the world better for trans kids – Mermaids.
Education, support, outreach, training – these guys do it all. I don’t want a single trans kid to have to go what I went through, and I got off *lightly* – so I’m putting my money where my mouth is. Or, rather, your money.
And what do you get in return? Apart from mountains of cookies, and beautiful people, and laughter, and sweetness? Well:
Yoshki Greenberg was a washed-up ex-pornographer by the age of 24 and the party was only just getting started.
With performances at the London Hot August Fringe Festival and Sydney Fringe Festival under her belt and a number of competition appearances, 2011 has been a fist of fun, and things will only get wetter.
As a genderqueer artist my practice is multidisciplinary in nature, involving film, video, photography and text. My work explores how gender identity is constructed by culture, space and social constraints, focusing on the space above and beyond the gender binary. I strive to question the common foundations and assumptions upon which identity and gender is constructed.
Performance poetry – tender, furious, passionate, hilarious and all stops between – provided by Hel Gurney and Lyman Gamberton.
Dancing until socks fall off to the DJing delights of Angelica Riotstar – expect candy sounds, punk rage and riot grrrl joy.
Oh, yes – and my lovely self. Every song from Ashes, every bonus track, Resurrection Men and, if you’re very, very nice (and more than a little bit naughty) – maybe a Christmas song or two. The classy ones.
Spread the word!
