Join Site Gallery for an evening of readings and conversation with some of the Dream Babes zine contributors on the importance of science and speculative fiction for social justice and narratives of hope.
Dream Babes is a long term project that explores science and speculative fiction as a productive strategy of queer resistance, imaging futurity that does not depend on existing historical and social infrastructure. It has included science fiction porn screenings and talks, a three-day programme of performance at Auto Italia South East, a publication, and a regular science fiction reading group for queer people of colour.
This event celebrates the launch of Dream Babes zine 2.0 published by PSS, featuring contributions from:
Sophia Al Maria
Angela Chan and Xia Jia
Orion J Facey
Irene Tokini Fubara Manuel
Daniella Valz Gen
Victoria Sin and Samuel R Delany
Dream Babes Zine 2.0 focuses on the questions that speculative fiction can ask which are especially important now – what if things were different? What if things stay the same? How can we realise the absurd in the familiar?
This event is part of the programme around the exhibition Rewriting the Future.
