 Giant Dwarf strongly encourages masks at our venue

a proud Giant Developments project

To be honest…if you don’t fit into the constructs of whiteness and heteronormativity, then navigating the world and coming of age proves to be even more of a challenge.

For a lot of people, creating our own spaces has been our saving grace. It is within these spaces we are able to unpack and dissect our paths.

Often times we find ourselves drawing comparisons to the experiences we’ve lived and we can also learn about the journeys that are different to what we know.

So, what if diversity was the default?

Join us for the first instalment of To Be Honest – where we journey into the world and culture of Ballroom/Vogue. For our debut show, we will be conducting a candid conversation with some important members of Sydney’s Ballroom community.




Please do not attend if you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms, have travelled overseas within the last 14 days or have been in direct or indirect contact with a suspected or confirmed case of Covid-19.
