Y4AC learned about QUIRK-E which is a queer seniors’ writing collective. Our group were very interested in learning about what elder queer people experienced when they were younger and how their experiences being queer are now, who doesn’t love stories? We started writing together, we sent questions and writing/creating artistic responses, sometimes meeting to workshop together. The results were amazing! We wanted to shre with the community, we called it ‘Call and Response’. We performed in Surrey, Vancouver and at New Westminster Pride week and for Vancouver Public Library.
