BEING BRAVE, BEING CURIOUS: LGBTQ Teen Writing
From Jared Leto’s trans character in Dallas Buyer’s Club to Laverne Cox in Orange is the New Black, people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning (LGBTQ) and intersex are experiencing greater visibility in the arts than ever before. Nowhere does this outward representation make a greater difference to real lives than for LGBTQ youth. 
Join Australian writer Alyssa Brugman, author of the funny and moving YA novel Alex as Well about an intersex teen; James Dawson, 2012 Queen of Teen nominee and author of Being a Boy and This Book is Gay; and host BJ Epstein, lecturer, editor and writer of Are the Kids All Right? about the portrayal of LGBTQ in children’s literature. They’ll explore the differences across LGBTQ characters in Britain, Australia and New Zealand, and discuss why everyone should be reading this fiction.
Saturday 31st May, 2.30pm
King's College London, Strand Campus
Tickets: £10, conc. £8 from www.ausnzfestival.com
