Samesame but Different is the only festival of its kind in Aotearoa that provides a space to uphold queer literature and authors, Samesame but Different celebrates this important artform, capturing our histories, and uplifting and encouraging the next generation of queer writers.

The very first samesame but different festival in 2016 saw Peter Wells provide a space for LGBTQI+ writers and readers to come together in a unique way. 2020 was our first festival without Peter, however his legacy continues.

This year’s theme of legacy is a nod to Peter, but also to our broader communities – our own families, and our LGBTQI+ community - who are sometimes our only family, and those who have fought for us, written for us, or read to us.

The legacy of this festival is both a gift and an inheritance. It is one we don’t take lightly nor too seriously. We want to continue to bring you, the reader and the writers, a festival that celebrates our stories and lives.

We invite you to join in: read your own poetry at the speakeasy, or make zines. Get fresh: with new play readings, a book launch and new book celebrations. Be inspired by new writing and by writing outside the lines, and writing that deals with the hard stuff. Reflect on who we are, who we write for and where we come from. Join us and our wonderful line up of writers.
