Queerspace Breakfast in the park on Xmas Morning
As our Breakfast in the park on Christmas morning last year was such a hit, it showed how much of a need there was for people to come together the morning of Christmas day to be around other LGBTIQA+ people and our allies.
So on December 25th the queers will take over another park and we invite you to feast on breakfast foods, including vegan and halal options.
Featuring live music, face-painting and games for the young and young at heart.
We know the holiday period can be hard for many, that’s why we need our queer village, so please join us for some festive feasting, fun and friendly banter!
- Wednesday December 25, Edinburgh Gardens Rotunda, Fitzroy. 8.30am-12pm

A place at the table: new stories of the familiar
Storytelling, in its many forms, is an age-old way of sharing experiences. A Place at the Table will share tellings of queer meanderings from many perspectives and explore journeys of identity, belonging, truth, emotion, and life. This evening gives voice to the stories that often go untold, unacknowledged, or distorted – through powerful spoken word performances.
Hear members of our community speak of Coming Out stories; the ones they have, and the ones they wanted. Share experiences of being queered, staying in and finding a voice.
This event is produced by members of LGBTIQA+ communities, for members of LGBTIQA+ communities. All families and their LGBTIQA+ loved ones are invited to come along and bare witness, connect, recognise, and share their journey so far.
A place at the table is presented by queerspace in collaboration with Melbourne Spoken Word. queerspace is an LGBTIQA+ health and wellbeing service, established by LGBTIQA+ communities for LGBTIQA+ communities. queerspace has a focus on relationships, families, parenting and young people and offers services across the north-west region of Melbourne.

Doing Gender: old-school storytelling, new school stories
Doing gender, not having it done to you!
Living, breathing storytelling that speaks to the diversity, complexity, and richness of being human in the world right now. Performing without the constraints of the binary, gives voice to those who don’t fit the binary (and don’t want to!).
Hear performances from members of LGBTIQA+ communities on how they perform gender, where they perform gender, and how we break out of the binary. Explore perspectives and identities through the words of those who are doing gender, not having it done to them.
All members of LGBTIQA+ communities, their families, and allies are invited to come along and bare witness to the multifarious stories as we wonder through our genderings.
