Reading in the nude

■ Naked Girls Reading Cape Town will host a reading, called Queerly Beloved, at Alexander Bar on Thursday March 3 and Friday March 4, at 9pm. Readers Charlie French, pictured, Ebony Katt, Lazz McQueen and Sister Kiss will bring an all-new reading list dedicated entirely to LGBTQI stories, queer readings and queer writers. Naked Girls Reading is a nude literary salon that takes place in 20 cities around the world and on five different continents. At each event, a small cast of women remove their clothing and read personal selections to an audience. The girls are naked but the audience are not.
