LITERARY PRIDE | LE GRAND EFFEUILLAGE LITTÉRAIRE
Information on the activity
Dates to come
Fierté littéraire, whose slogan is “Let's celebrate our queer literature and its authors,” is a not for profit organisation since April 2019 but it has been active since 2012. Fierté littéraire exposes our 2SLGBTQIA literature not only to our communities but to the rest of the people. We stand affirmatively for our literature and our authors.
The theme of our 10th edition is “Les mots qui démasquent” or “Words that Unmask” and is a reference to the emancipation of 2SLGBTQIA persons and well as to the pandemic we have lived with over the past year.
“Le Grand effeuillage littéraire” takes its inspiration from the anglo-saxon traditions of Naked boys reading and Naked girls reading and in accordance with the principles of nudism, authors are called on to undress completely or partially (underwear) in order to read their poems or texts. Free of any artifice, garment or jewels, with only their body or their underwear clad body, the artists have but their words to wear.
A celebration of body diversity as well as of the diverse gender identities and sexual orientations, this evening aims to make the audience discover queer literature in all of its simplicity and its complexity as well.
Hosted by: Jean-Benoît Archambault.
Other participating artists will be announced later.
Presented in French!
