Naked Boys Reading joins forces with the legendary Miss Coco Peru as guest curator to bring you a night of untucked literary treats, read to you by some of London’s most beloved drag-things! In true Coco style, expect an embittered collection of texts that pair best with some Tension Tamer Tea. Our readers will gender-fuck their way through an evening of face-on/clobber-off performances that will expose more than the syntax of verse, lemme tell ya! Hope you can cum, hun!

About The Curator: Miss Coco Peru has been a household name in the LGBT community for over 25 years. She got her start in the early 90's as a downtown favorite in the cabaret world of New York, and has since enjoyed an expansive career, ranging from intimate cabaret stages in New York and LA, to television sets in millions of living rooms. A veteran of numerous feature films (trick, To Wong Foo..., and the cult classic Girls Will Be Girls, and more), and television shows (How I Met Your Mother, Arrested Development, Will & Grace, among numerous others), Coco has also become a viral sensation on social media platforms, including Instagram and YouTube. Her hit one-woman show The Taming of the Tension was an And What 2017 audience favourite.

About Naked Boys Reading: Started by Justin Hunt and Alexander Karotcsh in London in 2012, Naked Boys Reading is the perfect intimate live event: a literary salon featuring in-the-buff readings by local beefcakes, bears, twinks, otters, butch femmes, sissy sluts, bois next door, and non-binary babes with an exhibitionist streak and lovers of naturism with a well-endowed library. We are fully international with events in USA, Canada, Germany, and Argentina!

This performance is presented as part of And What? Queer. Arts. Festival. 2020
