During this Queer Cafe in the library of Utrecht we celebrate the opening of the video-exhibition Ik mag zijn wie er is  (I can be whoever is there), in which Erik Alkema and Eveline van de Putte portray five elderly transgender persons. Presenter Teddy Tops questions Eveline about her books Stormachtig Stil (Stormy Silence) and Nieuwe Namen (New Names) that entail the personal stories of elderly queer / transgender individuals. In addition, photographer Marvel Harris tells about the newly released photo book Marvel, as a result of the Inner Journey project. Sharona Maguette Diop and Dan Madjub will talk about Hoktopie, a project of 12 students of the HKU as part of What You See. The evening will be concluded with a literary performance by Senna Pauli .

The Queer Cafe will also be streamed through the online channels of What You See Festival. There will be room for Q&A, so drop in and join the conversation from wherever you are!

This Queer Cafe is realised in collaboration with feminist bookstore Savannah Bay and the Utrecht Library | presentation: Teddy Tops | guests: a.o. Erik Alkema and Eveline van de Putte, Marvel Harris, Vincent Wijlhuizen, Sharona Maguette Diop, Dan Madjub and Senna Pauli.
