Last week I read at the Meet Cute zine launch, a witty, intense, and joyful publication edited by my good friend Anjeli Caderamanpulle.
Issue 1 focused on responses to teen romcoms from 1999-2009 and included poetry, illustration, collage, fiction, essay, and more.
I wrote a short essay about one of my favourite movies, But I’m A Cheerleader (1999), highlighting how the film used the tropes of the teen romcom genre to circumvent many depressing and hopeless stereotypes typically associated with queer cinema at the time.
It was the day before my birthday and a lovely event where I could reflect on my quickly draining youth!
In other news, I’ve updated the site with details of some of the projects that I’ve been involved in. They’re available to read on the menu to the left.
