The Coming Back Out Salon
Sat Feb 18 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Sat Feb 18 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The Coming Back Out Salon is a spectacular celebration of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Gender Diverse and Intersex elders.
Featuring The Sydney Youth Orchestra, Robyn Archer, Deborah Cheetham, Paul Capsis, Nana Miss Koorie, Tina Del Twist and Nefertiti LaNegra with more performers to be announced.
An afternoon of cultural significance in which the whole LGBTQIA+ broader community can gather alongside our LGBTQIA+ elders to eat, drink, dance, reminisce and dream together into the future.
The Coming Back Out Salon is designed to be a gift; one that acknowledges the resilience of this community, a gift of visibility to LGBTQIA+ elders who have lived through it all and a safe space for those elders just discovering themselves.
The event is inspired by growing research around isolation and loneliness experienced by LGBTQIA+ elders. In Australia, these elders have lived through times when being LGBTQIA+ could result in imprisonment, enforced medical ‘cures’, loss of employment and rejection by family and friends. For many, impending old age has meant going back into the closet, for fear of being deprived of companionship and quality care when they need it most.
After presenting The Coming Back Out Salon internationally, and with a feature documentary on Netflix, All The Queens Men are proud to present the NSW premiere as the opening event at Sydney WorldPride.
The Coming Back Out Ball Movie is now streaming on Netflix Australia (login required).
The Coming Back Out Salon is produced and presented by All The Queens Men for Sydney WorldPride in association with ACON and the Love Project. Supported by Australia Council for the Arts, Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund – an Australian Government Initiative, Create NSW and City of Sydney.
