The Bongo Club
Tickets available on the door or at www.tinyurl.com/bongojune
Bringing you some of the best queer spoken word performers in Scotland - from slam champions to playwrights, expect sparkling words and performances that will delight you, move you, make you laugh and make you think. All genders and sexualities welcome!
The venue has step free access, and there will be a bar for some cheeky Sunday afternoon pints if you so desire.
Jo Clifford - leading playwright and performer, author of The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven.
Harry Giles – poet, performance-maker, and founder of friend of OUT:SPOKEN, Inky Fingers.
Wendy Miller – performer and playwright, Glasgay! veteran
Graeme Hawley – former Scottish Slam champion, curator of Tricolour at the National Library of Scotland.
And… you?? There will be a limited number of 5-minute open mic slots. You can do a poem, dramatic monologue, rap, short story, flash fiction, diary entry – whatever words you fancy sharing… This is open to everyone; self identified non-straight performers can perform on any subject they like, but any straight allies who’d like to take to the stage are respectfully asked to do so in the spirit of support for their queer friends, by keeping it on the topic of queer issues.
