A Night of Indigenous Erotica curated by Samantha Marie Nock.
Lay of the Land is a night of space taken back and reclaimed for queer and two-spirit Indigenous poets and writers to call back our sexualities. Through 500 years of colonization, spaces to safely express love, longing, and our relationships to each other and the land have been directly attacked. Lay of the Land will be a night of learning to love again, through professing our connections to the places we are from, the people we love, and how we do so under colonization. We will be exploring topics such as the connection between our bodies and the land, decolonial love, queer Indigenous sexualities, relationship making, and the wonderful ways reclaiming our spaces is beautiful, messy, vulnerable, funny, and erotic.

The Queer Arts Festival presented by Pride in Art takes place on the traditional, unceded territory of the Coast Salish people, in particular the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ílwəta? (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We recognize their sovereignty, as there are no treaties on these lands, and we are dedicated to building a new relationship between our Nations based on respect, reconciliation and consent.
