Call in to speak with the host
#18 Will be Radio Gold - !8 Karat!
“For good and evil, man is a free creative spirit. This produces the very queer world we live in, a world in continuous creation and therefore continuous change and insecurity.” Joyce Cary We'll be talking to DM Moore and Duncan Armstrong; two folks who are part of the group that created The Beautiful and the Damned - a Poetry Cabaret every second Thursday of the month at Zelda's on Yonge (692 Yonge Street (upstairs)). A gathering place for the poets, the thinkers and the assorted ner-do-wells, The Beautiful and the Damned opens up the literary tradition and throws it at your feet! A cabaret that not only gives you a lively time amongst the living poets and assorted writers of Toronto, but celebrate a dead celebrity every show - who couldn't love a group of folk who dedicate a night of fun and poetry to Canadian film and stage icon, Jackie Burroughs?!!! And will be talking to Toronto's Sharlene Bamboat and Montreal's Ali El-Darsa,, who are queering the archives in their performance - Throwback. The event represents the culmination and closing of many exhibitions that have looked back at queer artists and realities. The Will Monro show at the AGyu, the Power Plant show and the Cinenova screenings at FAG all revolved around queer histories - Ba!mboat and El-Darsa are two artists who navigate the margins of the big dominant gay culture and place themselves in it...they're smarty pants and are going to have a lot to say! It's not highbrow; it's ROYNATION!
It's good to talk.
