Queer Diary Interest in Participating
Fill out this form if you want to take part in Queer Diary by sharing something from your teenage years.
Queer Diary is a night which invites LGBTQ+ people to read from their teenage diaries in front of a live audience* (we also welcome teenage poetry, fanfic, artwork, letters, etc - "diaries" is just a suggestion, we really welcome anything from your youth!)
Reading your teenage secrets aloud might sound scary, but it can be hilarious, exhilarating, and empowering. It's a chance to feel seen and recognised, to connect with your younger-self, and bond with other queers.
We are inclusive of ALL LGBTQIA+ communities, and whatever you bring to share doesn't need to be "about" queerness - we know you've got range! We love bringing together a room full of people from a variety of times, places, and experiences. Some of our early lives will be eerily similar, some will be as vastly different as we all are from each other. In sharing, we want to celebrate all of our queer coming-of-age journeys: our moments of joy, discovery, resilience, passion, and even the banality of everyday life in a bygone era.
Queer Diary started in 2020, and currently takes place online, with the support of the QAF Space queer community Zoom channel. Once it's safe to do so, we hope to also bring these events to queer-friendly spaces in the physical realm: pubs, theatres, community venues.
Queer Diary is founded by Beth Watson, and each event raises funds for Beth's autobiographical comedy show Hasbian (which is based on, you guessed it - a teenage diary), and for queer-run charities & organisations focussing on youth, education, and community.
*during the covid-19 pandemic live audiences will attend via the Zoom video sharing platform, so all readers will need to have a laptop or phone with a working camera & mic.
