Queer Songbook explores and celebrates the queer voice in songs from across the ages.
An aviary of non-heteronormative guests have been invited to choose their dearest, queerest song – the song that spoke their truth, strummed their pain or lit a defiant flame in their youth.
Stitched together into a coat of many colours by your hirsute hostess, Timberlina, each guest tells the story of their song before singing it live with the amazing Queer Songbook Band & DJ Auntie Maureen.
Presented in collaboration with And.What.Fest 2018.
