Would You Read Your Teenage Diary Aloud To A Room Full Of People?
A brave group of LGBTQIA+ folx are doing just that at Queer Diary – the night where queers share our teenage angst (and joy, dreams, follies, and fabulousness). We can’t promise to reunite you with your first crush, but we do aim to reignite that rush of adrenaline you got when they first noticed you. Join us in a teenage dreamworld, where we share what was obsessing us all those years ago.
Queer Diary is a space for LGBTQIA+ people to come together as grown-ups and escape cis-het-normativity by sharing our younger selves’ innermost thoughts via old diary entries, fanfiction stories, tumblr posts, and possibly the odd bit of angsty poetry! Sign up in advance if you’d like to to bring something to share, or book a ticket to be in the audience and enjoy the ride, from crush-ville to cringe-town, and back again,
via a throwback soundtrack of YOUR favourite school disco anthems (yes, we take requests).
If you are interested in taking part, you’ll find some FAQs and sign up form here: linktr.ee/hasbianqueerdiary (to sign up click on the second box that says ‘share something from your youth at Queer Diary).
