Considering the recent onlslaught by the conservatives, hell-bent on trying to inhibit the freedom of the people & the organizations from within the Queersland Community... Please join us, ponder & be inspired by a few simple, but wise words... "If you're gonna start Chuckin' Spears, make sure your Shield is Strong!" - Laurie Nilson.
The Forbidden Fruits Queer Folk Festivale' is a multi-faceted, all-inclusive event providing individual members [folk] & groups from within the Queer Community... an extraordinary opportunity to gather, bridge gaps, connect, develop/implement healing strategies & become stronger in a fun/safe/natural environment. So that in the future & in the face of adversity, we can stand United as One... Queer Nation. Forbidden is an independent production that is people-powered by pure intention & set on a gorgeous Lakeside property for all to escape everyday life & get back to basics. We need your help to get it off the ground! Due to the rapid growth of our Community in recent years, the turmoil & pressure that's being placed upon us by the conservatives, we can't afford to follow their lead & go backwards, as there is NO Closet large enough for all of us to be forced into! Come OUT... Share &/or Embrace the many aspects of our vibrant, diverse Community so we can collectively help create a truly unique Cultural experience, for all to Enjoy!
Forbidden is a Celebration of everything Queer with the Freedom to Be True to Ourselves... & Be Proud of It...Naturally.
There is no ceiling at this Festivale... It's in the bush, by a lake, with Queer Entertainment and Culture all weekend...
"It IS what it is... and it WILL be, what we MAKE of it!
Please pass info on, join in & contribute to Help make this event a success & a Good Dreamtime come true!
NB. * Proudly supporting Brisbane Pride Festival & QAHC by Donating part proceeds from Ticket Sales.
Once upon a Dreamtime..
"There were Queer Folk, young & old - The Forbidden Fruit... Everywhere!
Music playing, people dancing, prancing, smiling, laughing, singing, eyes glowing, flames flickering...
We need no permission to be, feel free & alive! The spirit of the land & water answers our call, brings us together, inspires courage, sparks creativity, breaks walls, connects hearts, ignites unity, bringing peace & harmony. We stand together & join hands... We Become One... Queer Nation!"
