Think those embracing alternative sexuality, sexual preference or gender expression have it better than ever? Think again:
On the last Saturday of October, artists and revellers of all ages from the LGBTQ+ communities came together at Sydney’s Carriageworks for an epic 12-hour party.
Called Day For Night, the event was the latest in an annual series run by Performance Space as part of its Liveworks Festival of Experimental Art.
Artistic director Jeff Khan describes it as “a space of radical togetherness, becoming, and possibility” that is “incredibly important in an era where queer communities are increasingly under threat”.
Musician and actor Brendan Maclean:
“We gather in these communions to remember our strengths after spending our lives being told we are wrong, that to hate us for who we are is an acceptable way of being.”
It could be that straights hate not LGBT+ folks but rather their continual whining.
