Side Walks - A Queer History

Saturday October 5, 2019
12:00 - 12:45

Side Walks is a dynamic, one-day celebration of storytelling in its various forms across Northbridge and the Perth CBD. Bringing together artists, writers, journalists and poets from across multiple disciplines, Side Walks presents six free unique events in venues both usual and unusual. From poetry to crime writing, literature to oral storytelling, these engaging events will inspire, challenge, and delight.

Jay Anderson and guests explore the individual and collective struggles and triumphs of the Perth queer community. They will look at what Perth was like previously and what it’s like now for people who identify as LGBTQAI+. How has the queer community been helped by others and how has it helped others in turn?
