Summary
There's more to being queer than coming out and equal marriage. This exciting and contemporary collection contains stories that are as diverse as the LGBTIQ community from which they're drawn. From hilarious anecdotes of an awkward adolescence, to devastating reflections on HIV/AIDs and its impact on the community, and heartwarming stories of family acceptance and self-discovery. Not to mention, of course, the saucy, salacious and plain silly tales of a community often defined by what it gets up to in bed. Collated from the hugely popular Queerstories storytelling event - now hosted at the Sydney Opera House - this important collection features stories from Benjamin Law, Jen Cloher, Jordan Raskopolous, Nayuka Gorrie, Candy Royalle, Rebecca Shaw, Simon Hunt 'Pauline Pantsdown' and more
Summary
There's more to being queer than coming out and getting married. This exciting and contemporary collection contains stories that are as diverse as the LGBTQIA+ community from which they're drawn. From hilarious anecdotes of an awkward adolescence, to devastating reflections on HIV/AIDs and its impact on the community, and heartwarming stories of family acceptance and self-discovery. The LGBTQIA+ community has been sharing stories for centuries, creating their own histories, disrupting and reinventing conventional ideas about narrative, family, love and community. Curated from the hugely popular Queerstories storytelling event this important collection features stories from Benjamin Law, Jen Cloher, Nayuka Gorrie, Peter Polites, Candy Royalle, Rebecca Shaw, Simon 'Pauline Pantsdown' Hunt and more.
