Butch Voices Fredericton: Finding Your Voice

March 1, 2011. The Queer Theory Collective is hosting the first “Butch Voices Conference” in Canada, in our own humble City of Fredericton, NB. The theme of this first Canadian Butch Voices Conference is “Finding Your Voice.” The conference is for people who claim “butch” as some part of their identity, and their allies. The conference is open to everyone in the community.

QTC Coordinator Shaun Bartone will offer an opening address: “We Are the Ones We’ve Been Waiting For: Reclaiming Butch History and Culture For Ourselves.”

The Conference will proceed with a workshop exploring various aspects of ‘butch’ identity: How do we speak, write, dress, act, relate, perform ‘butch’? How do we relate to ‘butch’ in the queer community? Participants are encouraged to bring something to share: a writing, music or visual art that helps them express what ‘butch’ means to them.

Butch Voices Fredericton will take place on Tuesday, March 1, from 7-10 PM, at the Gallery Connexion, 440 York Street.
