About T in the Depot: Phreaking Gender

Queer as Punk presents T in the Depot: Phreaking Gender. A cabaret featuring film poetry drag comedy and music all from trans artists.

PHREAKING GENDER follows the process of self-actualization through DIY transition. It acts as a techno-anarchist manifesto that explores the idea of self-augmentation; not just as a necessity for wellbeing but as an act of empowerment and rebellion in itself. The show including the titular film came about from Nicole O’Reilly and Luke ‘Luca’ Cockayne’s personal experiences with DIY hormones Both of them use their art to ease dysphoria and imagine a better future.

The film 'Phreaking Gender' rejects the conventional 'talking heads' documentary style opting for a visual blend of video collage and CRT circuit bent visuals alongside depictions of hormone-taking and gender-affirmation. Participants in the film express themselves through spoken word. It challenges the scrutiny of trans bodies in cis-heteronormative society using sensual erotic imagery to criticize cultural hegemony both with humour and sincerity..

Declare yourself into existence. Listen to Luke ‘Luca’ Cockayne’s poetry piece ‘Luke Cockayne Does Not Exist’ and then we’ll help you develop your own version you can even perform it on the night! Or what about ‘Manly Advice’? Is there any helpful advice from well meaning cis folk you’d like to share?

With drag from SYR comedy from Zoe Harding and music from Nicole's as L4nterns join the revolution today!

The Depot's venue space is wheelchair accessible and contains a wheelchair accessible gender neutral toilet. Please contact venue or organiser for access q's. Gendered toilets in Leith Depot main bar area.
