Wednesday 23 October 2019, 19:30 to 22:00

£12 + BF Book

"Witty, interesting, tough and tender." (Lamda Literary) - Laugh, cry, be welcomed! Family stories that anyone can enjoy and relate to, and that LGBTQ+ people will cherish their own reflections in.

Arnolfini and UWE Sociology present S. Bear Bergman with The Whole Queer Story.

A six-year-old contrives an elaborate excuse to run through the backyard sprinkler shirtless as the neighborhood boys are free to do.

The laundry-room discovery of a transgender college student’s boxer-briefs during a visit home leads to a blow-up with his parents.

A queer, transgender, cross-cultural international wedding unites two very different, and very nervous, families.

Introduced by Dr Finn Mackay, internationally-renowned storyteller S. Bear Bergman will tell a trio of funny, heartbreaking, astutely observant, and broadly illuminating stories to offer both a window into a queer, transgender life and also perhaps a mirror to your own gendered experiences - regardless of what your gender may be.
