Queermance Festival Early Bird Tickets Now Available

Queermance-Header

Tickets for Queermance 2016 are now live. We’re still locking in the program (so far it’s looking amazing), and finalising food options for you lovely people, but we’re putting up our early bird tickets now so that you can start looking at dates–so these ticket prices will go up once things are finalised, but for now, Adult Tickets are $130 and Concession Tickets are $80. That’s a significant drop in price from last year, and we hope to keep it that way. We won’t be providing lunches on Saturday and Sunday anymore, but the ticket cost will include morning and afternoon tea and a meet and greet with finger foods on Friday the 18th of March.

The Queermance Festival will run from the 18th to the 20th of March and will include a Queer Identities panel with a range of new people from the community for you to meet, and Everyday Queer panel about real life people and allies doing extraordinary things, and workshops on Writing Erotica and Shibari (Japanese Rope Bondage).

We look forward to seeing you all at Midsumma, and at the Festival itself.

Queermance @ Carnival

CARNIVAL1-600w

Queermance will have a presence at the 2016 Midsumma Carnival. I repeat, Queermance will have a presence at the 2016 Midsumma Carnival. Somewhere in the sea of white tents will be a small oasis of shade, calm and books. We don’t know where yet, but now that it’s been announced, we can’t back out. So here it is – when you find us, please come into our tent, chill out on our beanbags, and borrow a book from our little library of queer fiction. We will also have books for sale if you decide you like one.

So come join us on Carnival Day, Sunday the 17th of January and take a break from the sun and chill out for a bit with a good book.

If you’re an author and would like to have your book sold at our Midsumma Stall or stocked in our Library, please contact us at info@queermance.com.au, if there’s any excess stock, we’re also happy to carry them over to the festival proper.

GLBT, LGBTIQ, QUILTBAG, Alphabet Soup. You’ve heard them all, now come meet the members of your community you don’t always spend time with. Featuring Hespa, Park Ranger and Asexual Awareness Advocate, Amanda Marx, Genderfluid Poet, self described male femme Princess, and hosted by pansexual author Beck Mitchell, Queer Identities shines a light on the experiences of the diverse identities that make up our Queermunity.

So come join us for a cuppa, a slice of cake and a chat about gender diversity, sexuality, asexuality and not always fitting in.

This panel is presented as part of the Midsumma 2016 Program.
