164 Annaliese Constable - Operation Queer Space
Annaliese chronicles the campaign for a Queer Space at the University of Wollongong in 2004, complete with a 48 hour occupation and arrests by riot police. Annaliese Constable is a writer, performer and queer rights activist working across standup, queer performance and theatre. Annaliese is funny for a girl, pretty for a lesbian and when she can afford it very well medicated. You can follow her on Twitter @fistyscent. Annaliese first performed this story at Wollongong Queerstories, supported by Wollongong City Libraries, then again at Giant Dwarf in Sydney the next month. Annaliese will be performing a full-length show, a tragi-comedy called "Perfect Child", at Giant Dwarf in Sydney on October 12th 2019. You can get tickets here. Queerstories is an LGBTQIA+ storytelling night programmed by Maeve Marsden, with regular events in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
