  • Haes and Hyenas 63 Johnston Street Fitzroy, VIC, 3065 Australia (map)

A social meetup for QPOC permanent immigrants, expats, international students, temporary workers, and others that have moved from abroad to catch up, hang out and chill out with new and old friends.

As part of IRIDESCENT QPOC Festival, we are running some social meet-ups. It's so rare and precious for QPOC to get to meet, mix and bond with people with similar experiences as their own, so we wanted to use some of our Festival budget to make some social magic happen!

IRIDESCENT is a new arts & culture festival for queer people of colour.
Everyone is welcome in our audience, but QPOC will be on stage and holding the mic.

IRIDESCENT is presented by Hares & Hyenas, Mark Nannup, Mama Alto and Switchboard Victoria.

IRIDESCENT QPOC FESTIVAL is supported by GLOBE LGBTI Community Grants, and by State of Victoria, Department of Premier & Cabinet through the Multicultural Festival & Events Grants Program and the Pride Events & Festivals Fund.

IRIDESCENT takes place on the lands of the Kulin Nations. Always was, always is, and always will be Aboriginal land.
