Thu Mar 2 - Sat Mar 4

TikTok Sensation Rainbow History Class is a home for the LGBTQ+ history that’s too often not taught in school. 

In the Rainbow History Class Live Classroom, regular teacher Rudy Jean Rigg and writer and researcher Hannah McElhinney will leave the internet behind and bring the history of our community to life IRL in an evening of celebratory storytelling. 

From the origins of Mardi Gras, to the reason Alice Springs became a lesbian hotspot and  the time gay slang sent the US military on a wild goose chase, Rainbow History Class live classroom is one class you don’t want to skip.

Homework optional. Detention never. Glitter always.
