This one night event will be sure to open your heart and mind, make you laugh and cry, and leave you with an expanded sense of what's possible. It will be an intoxicating cocktail of stunning performances, teasers from Assume Nothing the film and I'll talk about my passion for this 15 year labour of love.
We'll be featuring some of the amazing people who have been involved in Assume Nothing.
Jack Byrne - performer, trans activist and my partner.
Shigeyuki Kihara- a celebrated multi media artist who is Samoan, Japanese and fa'afafine.
Ema Lyon- a Maori weaver who describes herself as ia ( which in Te Reo Maori means both he and she).
Mani Bruce Mitchell- an intersex activist who shares the power of photographs in the reclaiming of her identity.
