RESPECT – A Queer Affair

RESPECT—A Queer Affair is about love, hope and, of course, respect. It is an art exhibition and schedule of community events aiming to counteract the negative messaging targeted to the LGBTIQ+ community—especially the youth—and bringing it and its supporters together in a time of disharmony and discord. All events brought to you by Brunswick Street Gallery, Hares & Hyenas and the future ensemble.
