Auckland Libraries push past expectations...

Keen to see the library buildings used for more than just reading and storage? Want to take back your local library with an event that makes you THINK?
Join Auckland Libraries as they question, challenge and celebrate sex and sexuality on the page, stage and screen with a special series of thought-provoking events for over-18s.
Dark night celebrates diversity across the borders of gender, sexual identity, and sexual orientation. I for one would love a strong feminist group in the audience, especially for the Thursday night panel, and the Dark Night cabaret, where audience input have the capacity to mold the tone of the evening.
The events are as follows, further info can be found at the Auckland Libraries website.
I will see you there! - Scube.

I’m in love with your blog and your writing. I just wrote something on hip- hop and feminism and would love to hear what you think!

Have an amazing day!
