Up Late

When

Feminism never sleeps, so swing by Club Skunk for Broadside’s late-night talk show. Grab a drink and join our host Jan Fran as she chats to special guests Aminatou Sow and Jia Tolentino about their work, the internet, what they’re paying attention to and what’s keeping them up at night.


During the weekend of Broadside, Club Skunk is the place to meet up with friends, hang out at the lower town hall between sessions, and plan the spectacular obliteration of the patriarchy. What could be better than that?

Named after the lesbian bar in 10 Things I Hate About You, it’s a loving tribute to Kat Stratford and all the gloriously complex and brilliant feminists in our lives.

This event will be Auslan interpreted.
