Get Your Lit Out rocks the potluck June 20

June 9th, 2007     by piKe krpan     Comments

I can’t believe Toronto’s queer writer and organizer extraordinaire Debra Anderson… she is a powerhouse planner with her queer reading series Get Your Lit Out (disclosure: she also writes for Shameless!!!). She told me she was busy putting together a star line-up for the next reading, on June 20, but I had no idea it was going to be this good… and it’s free!

Here’s who’s reading: Shani Mootoo Trey Anthony Anna Camilleri Debra Anderson Gein Wong Dani Couture

and the event is hosted by comedian Dawn Whitwell. The literary night will take place at A Space Gallery (401 Richmond Street West) on Wednesday, June 20, 2007 from 7 p.m. 10 p.m. It’s free and open to all ages.

The last Lit Your Lit Out event in February was standing room only! I sat on this cold concrete floor for the whole reading and even though my bum was numb I didn’t care because the readings were so good.

This time the theme is the potluck. According to Debra, “the potluck is an entrenched lesbionic social event that we all love to hate or hate to love. At Get Your Lit Out Potluck, six sizzling authors will bring something different to the table to stir you, heat you up, and leave you craving more just in time to celebrate pride.”
