The Queer Breath of the Universe (guided meditation)

Transgender Sex Workers in Sweden: Stockholm Case Study (talk)

Ines Lukac is a sociologist & transfeminist activist who is currently engaged in fieldwork as part of her master’s thesis in Gender Studies at Lund University. During the workshop, she will present the preliminary findings on trans sex workers in Sweden followed by discussion with community about what can be done to make sex work safer, detach a stigma in relation to it, & empower the trans comrades associated with sex work for compensation business. By Ines Lukac from Lund University (Eng)

 

19:00-20:30

Queer/trans* salsa (workshop)

You love dancing but you are tired of heteronormative pair dancing? Then you are welcome to join us & give queer/trans salsa a try! We learn how to lead, to follow & how to change roles within the same dance.

Everyone can dance – no previous dance experience is required. Everyone dances with everyone – you don’t need to bring a dance partner. No special equipment is needed.

The introduction will be held by Bent & Markus who have been dancing queer salsa for a couple of years in Stockholm.

With Bent & Markus (Eng)

Self-organised space – what do you want to do? Let’s make it happen!

22:00 Film screening: Kairos Dirt & the Errant Vacuum

‘Kairos Dirt’ follows the strange happenings of two middle school lunch ladies, an androgynous student, a lesbian hospice provider, a grieving ministry worker, a transgender elder, a mystical mortician, & an astrologer/life coach/phone sex operator, as their lives intertwine to skirt alternate dimensions amid the post-industrial decay of the American South. Through a series of collective dreams, a transworldly being invades the characters’ dream spaces revealing wanton subconscious desires & a carnal alternate realm. Relationships unfold in unusual & fantastical landscapes as television monitors, radio frequencies, orifices & dreams all become portals to access this mysterious dimension. The characters are forced to ask “what is self?” What is other? What must we give up to become something else?

Madsen Minax / 2017 / 89 minutes / English with no subtitles

 

COMMUNITY-KVÄLL

Med:

Tin Man (uppträdande)

Storm Dunder framför egenskrivna låtar och dikter om mental ohälsa, identitet och missbruk. Med debut EPn Tin Man som grund och med texten i fokus blandar hen färdiga arrangemang med improviserade melodier för att bearbeta det flytande i en text, och undersöka hur en menings betydelse skiftar beroende på det sammanhang den framförs i.

A (failed) journey through labels, a (gained) experience on activism (talk)

The performance/session will have a theoretical line (queer theory & its authors, trans movement in a historical place as Barcelona, a review of past & current trends on LGBT community & rights), intertwined with a tinge of humor (from anecdotes of my own personal life). It should serve as a catalyzer for rethinking where we want our community to head in the future. It has a personal, intersectional & international perspective. The objective of the workshop is to give a critical perspective & coming to learn what bonds our community together.

With Uxue Marigomez (Eng)
