Queer Poetry Reading - A Tribute to Costas Taktsis
In this 4th edition, dedicated to the memory of the brutally assassinated, homosexual and travesti greek poet, Costas Taktsís, we will be presenting the outcomes of our creative writing workshops as well as the works of contemporary queer poets from Greece in a 2-hour long show with readings and performances.
A fanzine with the poems of the night and their respective translations into English will be printed out and sold for a symbolic price at the door.
