Brisbane’s LGBTI youth service Open Doors will soon hold one of its major events for 2013 and is urging all under-25s in the LGBTI community to come celebrate and embrace their identity.
The Queeriosity Youth Festival is a celebration of art, music, culture and community created by, and for, sexually and gender diverse young people. This year’s festival is all about pride and will also promote the themes of empathy, compassion, acceptance and courage.
Queeriosity is taking part in the National Youth Week and will display some of the Brisbane’s best queer and alternative talent. The festival will feature live bands, drag shows, dance troupes, art workshops and demonstrations.
Open Doors is hoping the festival will focus on several serious issues effecting LGBTI youth in Queensland, including homelessness and mental illness, as well as problems surrounding homophobic bullying in schools, but want to urge that the day will be fun-filled and lively.
Queeriosity is on Saturday, April 13 at the Holy Trinity Church (141 Brookes St, Fortitude Valley) from midday until 6pm.
