Same Same But Different: Opening Night Gala

Great Moments

Friday 9 February, 7.30pm

Sir Paul Reeves Building  Room WG126, AUT City Campus, 2 Governor Fitzroy Place, Auckland City

LGBTIQ writers describe and define their ‘great moments’ – that time you suddenly realised something important, or made a crucial decision from which you never looked back – or just thought, “Bugger it, I’m out of here. I’m off to the moon!”

Lively, controversial and intense – featuring a brilliant selection of speakers, breakthrough icons and established legends, including Quinn Eades, Chris Tse, Mani Bruce Mitchell, Hera Lindsay Bird, Anton Blank, Marilyn Waring and Peter Wells.

Chaired by Jeremy Hansen, editor of Paperboy magazine. Drinks reception from 6.30pm.
