The Queer Cultural Center presents an event of the National Queer Arts Festival (NQAF).|
Remembering Tede Matthews is a literary event honoring the life and legacy of the beloved Bay Area poet, performer, and activist, featuring readings and recollections from people who knew him, including a number of writers who were part of the Bay-Area queer radical poetry scene of the 1980s and 1990s. The event will also include rare archival footage of Tede as well as newly commissioned work by younger queer artists who carry forward his art and politics.
The event is part of Queer Are You Going, Queer Have You Been, a curatorial project organized by historian Greg Youmans that is dedicated to the creation of public events, accompanied by limited-edition publications, that explore the life and art of vital but lesser-known figures from the queer past. The project launches this year with events around Tede Matthews and pioneering lesbian poet Elsa Gidlow.
