Join host Maeve Marsden, along with a line up of stars and strangers, for a night of queer stories, unexpected tales of lives well lived and battles fought, pride, prejudice, love and humour. The LGBTQIA community has been sharing stories for centuries, creating our own histories, disrupting and reinventing conventional ideas about narrative, family and community. There's so much more to being queer than coming out and equal marriage.
Funny, moving, surprising and engaging, in its usual home in Sydney, Queerstories has been selling out every month for over a year, bringing storytellers from all walks of life to the stage. Now for the first time, Queerstories travels interstate, making its Melbourne debut at Howler.
Featuring radical black feminist theatre maker Candy Bowers - Circus OZ's Davey Thompson - Researcher / Writer / Poet Quinn Eades - Writer and social worker Dee Fidge - Activist Tarneen Onus-Williams. Plus comedian Toby Halligan.
