samesame but different

21:00 pm
various venues around Auckland and online

The 2021 samesame but different festival is a time for us to shake off the upheaval of 2020. We invite you to our queer literary home, to sit back and be entertained by some of the best LGBTQI voices today and to celebrate our community’s literary achievements.

This year it is no surprise that we are reflecting on the idea of home, as it has been particularly important to us over the past year. This year’s programme features many stories from home. We explore the notion of home in our opening gala, what it means for our LGBTQI communities and how it shapes us. Events are free but booking is essential. See our full programme here:
