Going Postal: Reflections on the Marriage Equality Vote

The Wheeler Centre

Event Date: 
14 November 2018
Author / Presenters: 
Quinn Eades, Fury, Dennis Altman, Candy Bowers, and Son Vivienne

‘We’re about to be given a number,’ Quinn Eades wrote, on the eve of the result for the marriage equality postal survey. ‘A number that will sew itself into our skins. A number that will not let us go.’

On the anniversary of that historic announcement, we’re bringing together a stellar line-up of LGBTQ+ talent to share writing inspired and provoked by last year’s survey. With Quinn Eades and Son Vivienne hosting, we’ll hear readings from the new anthology Going Postal: More Than ‘Yes’ or ‘No’, a collection of essays, comics, poetry and artwork from creative queer and gender-diverse Australians.

Bring your flags, friends and an industrial-sized box of tissues, as we share some raw reflections and reasons to rejoice on this historic anniversary.

This event will be Auslan interpreted.

Hares & Hyenas will be our bookseller at this event.

Drinks available for purchase on the night.
