Description

The Coming Back Out Ball is a spectacular social event celebrating LGBTI elders (65+).

A premiere event of the Victorian Seniors Festival in association with the Val'’s LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care.

Hosted by Tristan Meecham, this night-of-nights blends showbiz bells and whistles, community celebration, heartfelt story telling, dinner and dancing. Headline performers include: Briefs: Close Encounters, Electric Fields and Meow Meow with event direction by Cameron Menzies.

Dress Code: GOLD, formal and fabulous!

The Coming Back Out Ball was inspired by research revealing that some LGBTI elders conceal their sexual orientation or gender identity when they access aged care services – because they believe they are not safe. With so much change over the course of their lifetime, some LGBTI elders have lived through a period when being LGBTI could result in imprisonment, enforced medical 'cures', loss of employment and rejection by family and friends. For this generation, the first to fight for equality, impending old age may mean going back into the closet, or the risk of being deprived companionship or quality care when they need it most.

The long-term vision is that The Coming Back Out Ball becomes a regular adored event on Melbourne’s social calendar; understood for its inclusivity and cultural significance.

Created and produced by All The Queens Men. Supported by City of Melbourne, Margaret Lawrence Bequest and Victorian State Government.
