About the event
April is our first non-book book club. We bring you Sophie from Mars, non-binary YouTube legend. Check out these two videos:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbSTtU4Tknk Pokemon Liquid Crystal, The Furthest I've been from home
A love letter to a game that comforted them in a difficult time, that frames a discussion around the ownership of art. Contains some political themes and a lengthy discussion of pokemon minutiae.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9G-VQMeem6Y Being Seen, a video about being trans & non-binary
A reflection on the non-linearity of figuring out one's gender. This is Sophie's coming out video, and as such is more explicitly queer-themed. Content warning: this video contains discussion of the deaths of trans people, and holocaust events.
Accessibility: subtitles are available for both videos, but they are auto-generated and may not be accurate.
We'll meet at the Harehole, northside queer community hub. Come in the shop and ask for us in the shed (private and out back). Bring a mask and snacks.
Hurrah! Book club takes over culture.
