We’re here! We’re queer! We’re ready to f*****g riot!

¡QueerRiot! is a celebration of queer political punk and a rejection of the mainstream commercial gay scene. Featuring local bands Ether Mech, Jova and the Wave, and Galivantes and hosted by outrageous drag king extraordinaire Dorian Wilde, this is a night to say “f**k the system!” and recover the tradition of queer protest art that celebrates solidarity with our most marginalised.

If angry queers, non-conforming gender expression, or political music make you uncomfortable, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. On the other hand, if you are rightfully outraged by the s**t we have to put up with and are craving some liberation, THIS IS FOR YOU. Support our local queer punks and know that you are not alone.

This is an inclusive space for trans people, disabled people. women, and people of colour!
