Queer Piano Bar (QPB)

Queer, far, wherever you are, your perfect late night offering of glamorously gay song is here!

As a collective of Queer anthems are played that spans over the last 80+ years we get an insight into what has created queer culture and what we hope to push into the lexicon of the future. The audience should expect a joyous celebration, a moment away from the consistent labour that is a media cycle built against us. Allow yourself to experience pure queer joy.
