Maeve Marsden presents:

Join us for an evening of unexpected tales, stories of pride, prejudice, resilience and resistance, delivered with warmth and humour by some of Australia’s finest storytellers.

Vulnerable and powerful, hilarious and heartbreaking, Queerstories celebrates the culture and creativity of the LGBTQI+ community one true story at a time,  delving deeper into community and identity, reflecting on our histories, and contending with the potential of our futures. A national storytelling project directed by Maeve Marsden, Queerstories has sold out at festivals and independent venues around the country for the past five years, with a book published in 2018 and an award-winning podcast boasting more than 250 stories. There’s more to being queer than coming out and getting married.

June 12
Hosted by Maeve Marsden with Madeleine Stewart, AJ Lamarque,Josephine Inkpin, Peter Polites, Gary Lonesborough and Glace Chase
