158 Joy Ng - Boomers and Facebook
At 71, Joy's Dad gets a Facebook account, and it changes their family forever. Joy Ng opened The Bearded Tit 4 years ago with two friends as a place for the Redfern, artistic and queer community to congregate, experiment and dance together. Her investment in diversifying and creating space for Sydney’s alternative nightlife sees her also sit on the City of Sydney’s new Nightlife and Culture Advisory Panel. Queerstories is an LGBTQIA+ storytelling night programmed by Maeve Marsden, with regular events in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. For Queerstories event dates, visit www.maevemarsden.com, and follow Queerstories on Facebook. The new Queerstories book is published by Hachette Australia, and can be purchased on Booktopia.
