Maeve Marsden presents:

Join some of Australia’s best storytellers for an evening of queerstories; reflections on lives well lived and battles fought, pride, prejudice, love and humour. The LGBTQI+ community has been sharing stories for centuries, creating our own histories, disrupting and reinventing conventional ideas about narrative, family, love and community.

There’s more to being queer than coming out and marriage. Listen to an unexpected tale or two from a diverse line up of stars and strangers, hosted by Maeve Marsden.

AUGUST 16th 2019 – Queerstories
Hosted by Maeve Marsden and featuring Senthorun Raj, Robert Dessaix, Mystery Carnage, Bastian Fox Phelan, Erin Riley and Nina Oyama!
