Here We Queer would like to invite you to the celebration of their very first birthday.
They are commemorating one whole year of being out, loud, and proud!
On 29 June, Here We Queer pair with Bloodhound Bar in Fortitude Valley HWQ pink to raise money in support of Open Doors Youth Service Inc.’s incredible program, PRIDE Art Therapy.
Art unites us, drives us, creates us, and enlightens us.
Come join us in a celebration of art and creativity.
One year ago, co-founders Tayla Lauren Ralph and Phoebe Le Brocque (Brisbane Pride Awards 2019 Young Achiever) held an LGBTQIA+ social meetup in their hometown of Toowoomba.
Since that one small meetup in a USQ classroom, Here We Queer held further events such as:
Queer As Film Club.
Queer Beers, in collaboration with Crimson Presents.
They also launched a growing YouTube channel highlighting the talents of Brisbane indie-pop musician Hallie and local fashion designer Phoebe Paradise.
For our birthday you are invited!
To a collaborative celebration of emerging queer artists and allies.
An eclectic art exhibition, poetry afternoon, short film screenings, and local queer musicians — everything we adore under one roof.
You can help us raise money by buying donated artwork, buying a pint (or pot) from Semi-Pro Brewing Co., and getting amongst the raffle.
Further, all proceeds from the above will be go direct to Open Doors Youth Service.
In addition to fundraising, the creative talents queer musicians and poets will fill the event.
From 3pm, five local poets join our downstairs stage to deliver the spoken word. In the golden hour of the afternoon, young queer musician ETHAN will be bringing moody r&b infused pop to the bar.
The evening festivities kicks off at 6pm, featuring Ruby Lee, Taylor Payne, and The Beamish Brothers.
Here We Queer events are open to those of all genders and sexuality.
