ASL INTERPRETERS HAVE BEEN CONFIRMED!

“All of us live in unruly bodies that we’re all trying to take care of as best we can.” —Roxane Gay

In her pop-up magazine for Medium, Roxane Gay asked writers to respond to the question: “What does it mean to live in an unruly body?” In this night of stories, writers and storytellers will share a story about their relationship with a body that refuses to act “as it should.”

In a world that works so hard to control, discipline, and punish the bodies of women, and especially trans women, femmes, BIPOC women, non-binary folks, and sick and disabled women, how can we begin to celebrate our unruly bodies?

We're excited to host this event for a third time, featuring a new and wonderful line-up of storytellers!

Featuring:

Sachiko Murakami
Renee Dumaresque
Jill Andrew
Nisa Malli
Lauren Ramsay
Jodi Chan
Faith
Erica Louise
Jess Goldson
Loretta Jean
