Polly's February Dance

Polly's February Dance

The Pollys Club was formed in 1964 and is the longest running LGBTIQ social club in Australia. We hold dances throughout the year which provide an alternative social scene to the traditional bar and club environment. Our dances provide a safe and friendly environment for the LGBTIQ community, supporters and friends to gather and enjoy an evening of dancing and entertainment and at the same time raise funds for our grants program. Over our long history, The Pollys Club have donated over $350,000. towards many charities and organisations through our Annual Grants Program.

Come and join in the fun at our 2018 February dance – “Two Of Hearts”

Songs Jessye's Sung

Songs Jessye's Sung

Soprano Julia Wee and pianist Lucus Allerton present a musical program inspired by the great African-American soprano Jessye Norman and the struggle for civil liberties and freedoms. The program includes spirituals and songs by Mahler and Strauss. Come and be enveloped in this rapturous program of music that will move you with its tales of battles fought and won in the journey of life and love.

The September 2017 debut performance of this program for Artsong Canberra led one reviewer to write: Julia “established an immediate, genuine rapport with her audience” and “invested the song with a strength and emotion that was very moving.” “The piano accompaniment for this work by Lucus Allerton was especially fine.”

For this performance, Julia and Lucus will be joined by guest artist Pamela Andrews. All three first met as students at the ANU School of Music, Canberra. Each finding their own way after graduating, this is the first time they have come together again to give this very special presentation (which may involve Julia in more than just a little bit of drag!).

Go west this Mardi Gras with Sydney’s favourite LGBTQI storytelling night. Join host Maeve Marsden and an eclectic line up of stars and strangers at Riverside Theatres, Parramatta for a night of our city’s queerstories, unexpected tales of lives well lived and battles fought, pride, prejudice, love and humour.

The LGBTQI community has been sharing stories for centuries, creating our own histories, disrupting and reinventing conventional ideas about narrative, family and community.

In its usual home in Redfern, Queerstories has been selling out every month for over a year, bringing storytellers from all walks of life to the stage. Funny, moving, surprising and engaging, the stories from Queerstories are also available on the podcast.
