More information from Facebook event below:

For the last stop of our North American tour we’re stopping in Montréal!

Sign up beforehand to perform at bit.ly/selfishopenmic or on the night starting 7.30 pm. Everybody gets 5 minutes on stage! Performances start at 8 pm.


Self-ish is a women, trans and non-binary open mic launched in Paris in May 2016. Why? Because it’s about time we have a space of our own to express our-selves and share our stories.

Anyone is invited to attend but the mic is exclusively open to women, trans and non-binary folk (anyone who doesn’t identify as cisgender – see Q&A).

This space is wheelchair accessible!

So come along and share your poetry, songs, craft, prose or performance: let’s be Self-ish!


There is no entrance fee but please donate or buy our posters and stickers by Zoochora (upon donation) to support us!


We ask that all performers adhere to our guidelines (https://self-ishopenmic.org/guidelines) and we particularly encourage performers of colour, black performers, trans and/or non-binary performers, intersex performers, queer performers, fat performers, disabled performers (with a visible or invisible disability), sex workers, asexual and bisexual performers, and muslim and jewish performers to get on stage and express themselves, be it related to the discrimination they face or not.

✦ Q&A ✦ (more detailled Q&A at https://self-ishopenmic.org/qa/)

☞ What do the terms trans and/or non-binary mean?

A person who identifies as trans is a person whose gender identity and the sex they were assigned at birth do not match up. Someone who identifies as non-binary is a person whose gender identity is defined as being neither “male” or “female,” they might use other terms to define themselves such as genderqueer, genderfluid, agender, and more. Find our more here: https://transequality.org/issues/resources/understanding-non-binary-people-how-to-be-respectful-and-supportive. A cisgender (or “cis”) person is someone whose sex they were assigned and gender identity match up.

☞ I am a cis dude, can I come?

Yes of course.

☞ I am a cis dude, can I come and complain about how I am not included in this open mic?
