Presented by Brisbane Comedy Festival in association with Maeve Marsden

There’s more to being queer than coming out and getting married – Featuring Jude Perl, Kirsty Webeck, Frances Mulcahy, Chris Southcote + more!

Queerstories returns to Brisbane Comedy Festival once more for a stellar line up of unexpected tales, stories of pride, prejudice, resilience and resistance, delivered with warmth and humour by some of Australia’s best LGBTIQ+ comedians as well as incredible local storytellers.

Vulnerable and powerful, hilarious and heartbreaking, Queerstories celebrates the culture and creativity of the LGBTIQ+ community, one true story at a time.

A national storytelling project directed by Maeve Marsden, Queerstories has sold-out at festivals and independent venues around the country, with a book and an award-winning podcast boasting nearly 300 stories.

This show is Auslan interpreted, proudly supported by the Dalwood-Wylie Foundation.
