Queer music is as fluid and diverse as the community it comes from. Queer and trans people have been at the forefront of so many burgeoning musical movements across history, from disco, to rock & roll, to experimental harsh noise. However, many of our most forward-thinking queer musicians find themselves unfortunately sidelined from two directions – on the one hand for their identity, and on the other hand for the uncompromising nature of their art.
Please join us for an evening celebrating the diversity and creativity of Auckland’s queer music scene at our city’s premier location for sonic exploration – Audio Foundation.
We are showcasing a hand-picked selection of Auckland’s best experimental, underground, and “out-there” LGBTQIA+ musicians, across the spectrums of gender, sexuality, and genre. Expect handmade analog instruments, screeching guitars, balloon-infused pop bangers, crushing drones, and more.
Anything goes in this experimental free for all, and we can’t wait to blow you away.
Presented by Loud & Proud
