Queer Memoir: WHAT IS TUZ?

We’ve got a brand new venue and a brand new guest curator to help celebrate Queer Memoir’s Three Year Anniversary!

Queer Memoir: What Is Tuz?

Queer Memoir is New York’s community based LGBT storytelling series. In this special Queer Memoir, guest curator Nadia Awad is bringing together storytellers to share around the theme “What is Tuz?”

About Tuz: “tuz”/ طز is an Arabic word that connotes moxie, “go to hell,” “I don’t care,” or “not my rules.” Storytellers will be sharing the meaning of the word as it emerges through their own personal narrative.

Nadia Awad is a filmmaker who accompanied the first solidarity delegation of LGBT people to Palestine in January 2012. Tickets for this special Queer Memoir are 15 bucks (email for ticket price exemptions if needed) and proceeds will go to help Nadia finish her film about the delegation.
Here are all the details:

More about Queer Memoir:
Even as LGBT characters and “out” celebrities become more common in pop culture and mainstream media, the richness and complexity of real queer lives is still undervalued and often invisible. Queer Memoir attempts to provide an avenue to share queer lives and celebrate the ritual and community-building value of storytelling.
