Tokyo’s first queer culture festival showcasing independent publications and art from Asia and around the world with a focus on sexuality, gender, and feminism.
In addition to the zines and art, there’ll be live music performances and a special screening of “Weekends”—a documentary on Korea’s first and only gay choir and their mission to gain acceptance. (The film will be subtitled in both English and Japanese.)
The venue is PURX in Taito-ku, a newly opened vegan cafe and event space. While the fair is free to enter, screenings of the film cost ¥1,000. It will be on at 7.30pm on the 16th – to register for a ticket (payment taken at the door) please fill in this form.
