Introducing R.E.V.: a queer and trans smut night!

R.E.V.

Radical. Erotic. Venting.
a queer and trans smut night

NEW DATE! MAY 28 2016

Whoa, whoa, whoa. A local event giving queer and trans folks the spotlight! Well, I’ll be.

Plan B Co-operative KW is publicly seeking volunteers and artists for KW’s first ever queer and trans smut night. This lively eve shall bring out the joys of our sexual fantasies, our exploration tales of desire, our celebration of libidinous adventures… Whatever you want to share!

What more can we say? We’re tired of being exploited and fetishized as queer and trans bodies within our cis-hetero-patriarchy of a world. Let alone the whole narrative of othering our bodies by de-sexualizing us or hyper-sexualizing us. That’s why we’re introducing R.E.V. to our local queer community. Why not share the vulnerability, the joys, the liveliness, the excitement, together!

Here’s what you need to know:

  1. Right now, we’re looking for person power to help us organize this fabulous evening and artists to perform. Does any of this tickle your fancy? Great! Let’s chat.
  2. We are accepting any and all queer and trans artists to perform! The deadline to apply is May 10, 2016.
  3. While we are open to any queer and trans folks to contribute to R.E.V., we are particularly looking for the stories, narratives, performances, and tales of queer folks, transgender folks, non-binary folks, persons of colour, indigenous peoples, persons from low socio-economic backgrounds, persons with (dis)abilities, aromantic and asexual/demisexual folks, immigrants, refugees and undocumented folks, and/or sex workers.
  4. This event is sexual in nature and for this reason, you, the potential performer and/or audience viewer, must be 18 years of age or older. If you are between the ages of 16 and 18, please contact us. We will work with you to gain parental/guardian consent. Legal matters suck.
  5. This event is sober. The venue is wheelchair accessible and low/reduced scent.
  6. All performers will be given honorariums for their contribution.
  7. What are we looking for? Oh gosh, you name it. Anything from a poem you wrote about the first time you ever climaxed while masturbating to your first kiss wearing that super fly dapper-esque get up you spent way too much money on, to burlesque groups tag teaming babe aura, to song pumping up the beats in our hearts, to second and third puberty adventures, to poetry blowing kindle smoke into our bodies, to polyamory tales of boundaries and searching for fulfulment, to kink fixations of fantasy, to body changing-baby-baring hormone needs, to erotic brain melting wonder, to whatever your tenderqueer little heart desires! This event is about you.
  8. How to apply? It’s simple. All you have to do is contact us via email by providing us with:
    1. Your super badass bio with contact information;
    2. Trigger and content warnings for/of your work;
    3. Either an overview, an abstract, a link or file to previous performances, or your work in full;
    4. The genre or type of work you will perform (see number 7 for examples).

So are you ready?

SAVE THE DATE!
