Backstories is a multi-sited storytelling festival located in backyards across Perth and regional Western Australia. In 2021, Backstories featured locations in Margaret River, South Fremantle, Midland, Quinns Rocks and more.
Backstories 2021 was made possible with funding from Lotterywest, Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and the Centre for Stories Founders Circle.
This story was collected at our Caversham backyard. It features Garick Lee. Garick had always been a shy and introverted kid. It wasn’t until he got a bit older that he realised there was a name for what he was experiencing.
