Riverside Theatres presents Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival
Featuring Liam Benson, Francisco Lopez, Gary Paramanathan and more
Enter the raucous, radical and wildly funny world of Queerstories and listen to an unexpected tale or two from some of Australia’s finest LGBTQI+ storytellers. Fast becoming an institution around the country, Queerstories returns to Riverside Theatres for the third year running.
Join host Maeve Marsden and an eclectic line up of stars and strangers for an evening of our city’s queerstories, unexpected tales of lives well lived and battles fought, pride, prejudice, love and humour.
The LGBTQI+ community has been sharing stories for centuries, creating our own histories, disrupting and reinventing conventional ideas about narrative, family and community. In its usual home in Redfern, Queerstories has been selling out every month for more than three years, bringing storytellers from all walks of life to the stage.
Funny, moving, surprising and engaging, the stories from Queerstories are also available on the award-winning podcast and in a collection of stories published by Hachette in 2018.
