Celebrate the launch of Queer/Play, a new book edited by Moynan King.

Queer/Play: An Anthology of Queer Women’s Performance and Plays gathers works by both emerging and established Canadian queer artists at the intersection of queer life and art, delving into the resulting subcultures and always-changing concepts of identity and performance. In this book, queer is not just something someone is; it’s also something they do. Watch Queers Perform. Hear Queers Read. Eat Chips. Buy a Book.
