About the Show
Doing gender, not having it done to you!
Living, breathing storytelling that speaks to the diversity, complexity, and richness of being human in the world right now. Performing without the constraints of the binary, gives voice to those who don’t fit the binary (and don’t want to!).
Hear performances from members of LGBTIQA+ communities on how they perform gender, where they perform gender, and how we break out of the binary. Explore perspectives and identities through the words of those who are doing gender, not having it done to them.
All members of LGBTIQA+ communities, their families, and allies are invited to come along and bare witness to the multifarious stories as we wonder through our genderings.
Doing Gender is presented by queerspace in collaboration with Melbourne Spoken Word. queerspace is an LGBTIQA+ health and wellbeing service, established by LGBTIQA+ communities for LGBTIQA+ communities. queerspace has a focus on relationships, families, parenting and young people and offers services across the north-west region of Melbourne.
