With more than a couple of hundred people through the doors over the course of the day this year’s Queeriosity event for queer youth certainly rocked it and proved Brisbane has a goldmine of fresh talent.
The event, hosted by the Open Doors Youth Service, showcased some amazing up and coming performers and drag stars on stage. The gay police officers and LGBTI liaison officers hit a note with the many young people who were keen to get their photo with them. Click here to see photos from the day.
One of the day’s highlights was young up and coming rock band Strangers In Time, who pumped out tunes to get the whole joint rocking, shaking the walls of the Holy Trinity Church in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley. This band has some serious talent and if today’s performance is any indication they have the potential to forge a serious career. Their lead singer has charisma, all the moves and a voice to match. The crowd reacted in appreciation with applause and hoots.
Open Doors is a youth support service for our community. They’re partly government-funded but also rely on donations. If any young people would like to be a part of their drop-in sessions or use their services they are available in Fortitude Valley. Click here to visit their website.
