Kicking off the first of the Friday Night Social events into high gear, drag king superstar Justin Teliqure is curating an amazing hot line-up of a queer performance art night that is going to get you hooting and tooting with excellent local talent. Expect drag, dance, circus and… unexpected delights.
In recognition of International Transgender Day of Visibility, we are draping the gallery in blue, pink and white colours to celebrate. Performance art group Born In a Taxi are entertaining us with some high fashion zebras with a beastly twist and we are putting on a relaxed film screening of the seminal documentary ‘Paris Is Burning’ with English subtitles. We are also projecting the ethereal ‘Polyptych of Becoming’ by local legend Xanthie Dobbie. Resident DJ extraordinaire DJ Gaydad will be spinning some great tunes.
Our Friday Night Socials are a series of free events for self-confessed science nerds and art lovers who love trying something new, meeting new people and getting weird. Our BREAK THE BINARIES events focus on LGBTQIA+ identities and experiences. All members of the community and allies are welcome.
Please note: A performance-art show in the Science Gallery Theatre (7pm start) will give voice to lived experiences of transgender and gender-diverse artists, which may include nudity and strong language as empowering creative expressions. Adult guidance for people under 18 years is recommended.
