About the Show
There’s more to being queer than coming out and getting married.
Queerstories returns to Brisbane Powerhouse as part of Writers+Ideas for an evening of unexpected and heart-warming tales from the margins. Hear stories of pride, prejudice, resilience and resistance, delivered with warmth and humour by incredible local storytellers.
Vulnerable and powerful, hilarious and heartbreaking, Queerstories celebrates the culture and creativity of the LGBTIQ+ community, one true story at a time.
A national storytelling project directed by Maeve Marsden, Queerstories has sold-out at festivals and independent venues around the country, with a book and an award-winning podcast boasting nearly 250 stories.
