Join us for an evening of readings and conversation with a selection of the Dream Babes zine contributors on the importance of science and speculative fiction for social justice and narratives of hope.
Irene Tokini Fubara
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?
