Rainbow Alert!

Presented by Peril Magazine and the City of Melbourne as a part of Digital Diasporas – we are delighted to invite you to a night of queer art and performance.

All year we’ve been working hard to support queer artists from diverse cultural backgrounds to make and share new work as a part of our rolling edition, We’re Queer Here. And now we’re ready to share it with you live and IRL.

Join us at Art Play on Transgender Remembrance Day for a night of art, performance, perspectives, solidarity and community that celebrates the diversity of the LGBTIQ communities of colour across Melbourne.

Interrogating place, home, identity, belonging, culture, race and sexuality, We’re Queer Here puts the queer human, body and thinking at the foreground of a night of art, collusion, creativity and community.

While content will contain adult themes and discussion (we will provide guidance for self-curating your experience), the event is alcohol free to encourage all ages. Delightful snacks from the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre will top off the experience, while the artmakers leave you hungry for more.

We are delighted to announce that, in a challenging climate for many LGBTIQ folks, we have an exceptional line up of pop up readings, explosive performance works, installations and photo bombing opportunities across the evening’s celebrations.

*The mainstage events and some pop-up installations will be Auslan interpreted and Braille translations provided for the audio installation.
