Join Midsumma for this intimate evening of storytelling featuring former Hobsons Bay mayor Tony Briffa, writer and academic Dennis Altman (Homosexual: Oppression & Liberation), curator of Midsumma exhibition WE ARE HERE  Angela Bailey, and Dja Dja Wurrong language revivalist Harley Dunnoly-Lee.

Catch tales from the margin of Melbourne's queer history. This Moth-style personal storytelling night captures extraordinary and intimate insights into the people that danced, fought and loved long before most of us were around to do the same.

FREE event but booking required.
