9 - 13 February

First, BLACK FAGGOT shone a spotlight on a wide spectrum of gay Samoan men. Now PUZZY prepares to do the same for Pacific Island lesbians.

Mele is just your average Samoan Jehovah’s Witness – except she’s a lesbian. After she comes out and embarks on a quest for true love, she encounters a wide range of characters from her disapproving Elder John to her straight best friend Tina Turner and ultimately her first true love.

Written by Hawaiian based Samoan-Filipina newcomer Kiana Rivera (feat. Black Faggot’s Victor Rodger), PUZZY finally gives voice to a sector of the Pacific Island community that has long been invisible.
