About the Show
SPEAKERS: Timmah Ball, Fury, Dennis Altman, Candy Bowers, Quinn Eades, Son Vivienne
‘We’re about to be given a number,’ Quinn Eades wrote, on the eve of the result for the marriage equality postal survey. ‘A number that will sew itself into our skins. A number that will not let us go.’
On the anniversary of that historic announcement, we’re bringing together a stellar line-up of LGBTQ+ talent to share writing inspired and provoked by last year’s survey. With Quinn Eades and Son Vivienne hosting, we’ll hear readings from the new anthology Going Postal: More Than ‘Yes’ or ‘No’, a collection of essays, comics, poetry and artwork from creative queer and gender-diverse Australians.
Bring your flags, friends and an industrial-sized box of tissues, as we share some raw reflections and reasons to rejoice on this historic anniversary.
This event will be Auslan interpreted.
