Homoerotique – A Journey from Text to Subtext – and Back Again

Artist Talk, Presentation & Workshop by Sian Harris

September 23, 2022 6:00 pm

Arts Mildura Hub

A Talk and Workshop focusing on everything from homoeroticism to queercoding to LGBTQIASB+ representation in literature and media.

Sian Harris will lead a talk looking at literature from the Epic of Gilgamesh to Yaoi; from The Picture of Dorian Gray to Slash Fanfiction. 

There will be a workshop where people can create their own piece of media that explores themes touched on in the talk. This aims to be a fun, tantalising, educational evening of literature and art that will be at times gaudy; radical; painful; and full of joy.


Arts Mildura would like to acknowledge the Latji Latji, Nyeri Nyeri, Ngintait, and Wergaia people as the Traditional Owners of the land on which we work, along with their neighbours the Barkindji, Maraura, Mutti Mutti, Tatti Tatti and Wotjabaluk people.

We pay our respects to each of these communities and to their elders past and present.
