The theme of 2021’s Artfully Queer is HOME.
A look at what HOME means
to people in the LGBTIQ+ community
“Mother will never understand why you had to leave
But the answers you seek will never be found at home
The love that you need will never be found at home…”
Lyrics from Smalltown Boy by Bronski Beat
We’ve been spending a lot more of these uncertain times in our homes.
But what is home?
Where is home?
Home may be a safe place where you can be your true self, or a space where you feel you belong. Home may be a dream or aspiration, a place you haven’t found yet. Home can be a taste, a smell, we can feel at home in our bodies, in our home, in our town, on our island… in our universe. Home can be a person or a group of people. Home can be an object, a feeling or an idea. As Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz says repeatedly, “There’s no place like home!”
Artfully Queer is open to all Tasmanian LGBTQ creatives and families.
