Sydney's Favourite LGBTQI Storytelling Night Is Heading West
Queerstories is heading West to Riverside Theatres for one night only as part of the 2019 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.
On Saturday 9th February, the much-loved LGBTQI+ storytelling night, Queerstories, is heading West to Riverside Theatres for one night only as part of the 2019 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.
Writer, producer and theatremaker, Maeve Marsden, will host an eclectic line up of special guests presenting unmissable queer stories with a Western Sydney twist. Expect the unexpected with tales from lives well lived to battles fought, pride, prejudice, love and humour.
The program focuses on community heroes including young playwright Charles O’Grady, theatremaker and educator Felicity Nicol, former Co-Chair of Sydney Mardi Gras Brandon Bear, trans rights activist Dibs Barisic Sprem and local public servant and writer Steven Lindsay Ross who also features in the Queerstories book published by Hachette Australia in 2018.
Bringing storytellers from all walks of life to the stage, Queerstories has proved itself an undeniable success for the past two years with regular sold-out events now held across Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and regional towns.
Maeve Marsden said, “The LGBTQI community has been sharing stories for centuries, creating their own histories, disrupting and reinventing conventional ideas about narrative, family and community. I’m excited to be bringing the event back to Riverside Theatres for Sydney Mardi Gras; it’s one of the biggest pride festivals in the world and too often the events are focused around Oxford St. Incredible LGBTQI+ arts and activism is happening in Western Sydney and I am thrilled Queerstories can be part of it.”
A funny, moving, surprising and engaging night out, don’t miss this special Western Sydney version of Queerstories!
