Wild Things: A Trans-Glam-Punk-Rock Love Story

THURS. 3/16 7 PM. Free. 18+.
Twin Cities arts and culture mavens definitely know the dynamic musical icon Venus DeMars and pioneering glam rock band All the Pretty Horses, but may not be as familiar with DeMars’s partner, Lynette Reini-Grandell, an artistic talent in her own right. In the captivating new book, A Trans-Glam-Punk-Rock Love Story author and poet Reini-Grandell recounts the personal history of a cisgender woman and her trans spouse as the couple navigates a rising artistic profile, anti-trans hostility, and a supportive community. The book is a must-read for fans of the art, literary, and indie rock worlds of Minneapolis and New York in the ’90s and early ’00s, and the upcoming reading and discussion with award-winning journalist Marianne Combs at the Hook is also a must-attend.
