Free Event

Speak it, slam it, recite it, read it, perform it, sing it.

Same Same But Different and Auckland Libraries present the fourth annual Pride Poetry Speakeasy. Bring your original or favourite LGBTIQ poems to share in a welcoming word-nest, or come to listen and enjoy.

From half-past-five, the peaceful courtyard at the Leys Institute Library transforms into a safe haven for the sharing of words that speak to you, or shape who you are. Everyone will get their electric moment on the stage.
