Open mic and door charge.
Qwire consists of approximately 130 members from all walks of life, ranging from late-teens right through to the wiser generations; all drawn together by their common love of music and singing. Having first begun in the early 90’s, the Qwire is now highly regarded within the queer community not only for its vocal strength and performances, but also for its relaxed and social atmosphere. The Qwire brings together people from diverse sections of the ACT queer community and their allies and supporters to challenge stereotypes, and more importantly, build a bridge between the queer community and the non-queer community of Canberra through music.
Come and share this special poetic, musical and celebratory crossover event.
