The Queer Question LGBTQ+:為非主流發聲

With the support of Culture Ireland and the Consulate General of the United States

 

Although the LGBTQ+ community has become better represented within the mainstream media, there is still a need for more diverse literary voices in the writing scene. In conversation with Paul Tam, Executive Director of the Hong Kong Ballet, acclaimed writers Helen Zia, and Kit Fan will discuss how and why the writing circle desperately needs the LGBTQ+ community. As activists and advocates for the LGBTQ+ community, they will share their candid experiences and offer advice to aspiring writers on how writing and identity can be connected.

儘管LGBT+群體在如今的主流社交媒體上無處不在,文學界仍需要更多樣化的聲音。倍受讚譽的作者們謝漢蘭和Kit Fan將會解釋為何LGBTQ+群體是寫作圈不可或缺的一份子。作為LGBTQ+群體的成員和支持者,他們將真誠地分享自身經歷和掙扎,並會向心懷壯志的作家提供寫作建議。
