Queerstories

Queerstories

by

Join some of Australia’s best storytellers for an evening of queerstories; reflections on 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, love and community. There’s more to being queer than coming out and marriage. Listen to an unexpected tale or two from a diverse line up of stars and strangers, hosted by Maeve Marsden Having moved to the Netherlands to meet his gay donor father, a young hetero-ish male – raised by lesbian parents – explores his sexuality and queer identity. Michael Kruger is a published author, screenwriter and probably the most overly-sensitive new-age boy working full-time in sports media. He was raised by his two mums in Melbourne, but as gay luck would have it, he looks almost exactly like his donor dad. Michael is finishing a book about his queer family, and about his experience of moving to the Netherlands as a 22 year old to get to know his father. Queerstories is an LGBTQI+ storytelling night programmed by Maeve Marsden, with regular events around Australia.

The Queerstories book is published by Hachette Australia, and can be purchased from your favourite independent bookseller or on Booktopia.
