“They fuck you up, your mum and dad.”

LGBTIQ writers talk about memorable parents in fiction or in life – whether monsters, martyrs, martinets or miracles. As we age, do we understand more? Be prepared to laugh, cry, cringe or sigh.

Featuring Benjamin Law, Courtney Sina Meredith, Sam Orchard, Gina Cole, Ngāhuia Te Awekōtuku, Paula Boock, Philip Patston and Peter Wells.

Your host for the evening is The Women’s Bookshop supremo, Carole Beu.
