Antwerp Queer Arts Festival - Opening expo: My Me (Boysproject) - 13:00 — 18:00
Expo: My Me (Boysproject) Expo will be on view daily until the end of the festival (1 - 12 Aug) 12:00 — 22:00. Boysproject is an Antwerp organization for men and trans genders who (occasionally) earn money with sex. With the socio-artistic project My life, my zoom, my shot, my point of view... My me.Boys project invited some of their clients to take pictures using their smartphone, their own camera or a rented retro camera to take pictures of places, habits, activities, .…that for them as a sexworker are important. The result is an exciting exposition where we are granted a look into the private and/or professional world of male and trans gender sexworkers. Often invisible to us and therefore unknown. These people are seldom being listened to and they hardly ever get to take frontstage. Through “My Me Boysproject hopes to change this. Next to the pictures taken by the clients, there will also be several works by photographer Lize Van der Stock. Antwerp Queer Arts Festival (1 - 12 Augustus) is an international arts festival, questioning gender and sexual diversity, that takes place each year at the beginning of August. Entering its fifth edition, each year we have programmed both local performers and international talent within a variety of art forms: music, literature, film, dance, theatre, expositions, performance.This festival is more than an arts festival. Collaborating with academia and activists, we create a space and a platform for people to express themselves and to meet others. The festival is a grassroots initiative by the Antwerp Pink House, the local LGBT+ umbrella organization. It relies on community support to create the spaces and representation that we need. Your ticket purchase directly supports queer performers.
