Masculinities – What is it and what does it look
like in prose?
Authors and a performer discuss masculinity in terms of their work.

Mika’s sensational life crossing boundaries has been chronicled in I have loved me a man; Brendaniel Weir’s first novel Tane’s War describes a gay wartime romance and its aftermath, while Robert Tennent, aged 19, has self-published Come Back to Bed, a book of photographs documenting his tentative rediscovery of sex after the trauma of rape.

Chaired by queer poet and the most closely followed arts journalist in Aotearoa, David Herkt.
