S. Bear Bergman: The Whole Queer Story

Date: Wednesday, Oct 23
Time: 7:30pm
Venue: Arnolfini
Price: £12 + booking fee

Arnolfini and UWE Sociology present celebrated storyteller S. Bear Bergman with The Whole Queer Story.

“A six-year-old contrives an elaborate excuse to run through the backyard sprinkler shirtless as the neighborhood boys are free to do.

“The laundry-room discovery of a transgender college student’s boxer-briefs during a visit home leads to a blow-up with his parents.

“A queer, transgender, cross-cultural international wedding unites two very different, and very nervous, families.

“Introduced by Dr Finn Mackay, internationally-renowned storyteller S. Bear Bergman will tell a trio of funny, heartbreaking, astutely observant, and broadly illuminating stories to offer both a window into a queer, transgender life and also perhaps a mirror to your own gendered experiences – regardless of what your gender may be.”
