Stories of family when the unfamiliar arrives

Storytelling, in its many forms, is an age-old way of sharing experiences. A Place at the Table will share tellings of queer meanderings from many perspectives and explore journeys of identity, belonging, truth, emotion, and life. This evening gives voice to the stories that often go untold, unacknowledged, or distorted – through powerful spoken word performances.

Hear members of our community speak of Coming Out stories; the ones they have, and the ones they wanted. Share experiences of being queered, staying in and finding a voice.

This event is produced by members of LGBTIQA+ communities, for members of LGBTIQA+ communities. All families and their LGBTIQA+ loved ones are invited to come along and bare witness, connect, recognise, and share their journey so far.

A place at the table 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.
