Do you love a good natured boogie? Want something to do on a Sunday afternoon? Help us run LGBTQI+ Elders Dance Club!
We’re seeking LGBTQI+ elders and allies to help us present the Canberra LGBTQI+ Elders Dance Club with All The Queens Men (ATQM), Meridian and Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres (A+G), right here in our nation’s capital!

We want to hear from any Canberra and region based LGBTQI+ elders (55+) and allies interested in creating safe and fun opportunities to get to know each other, learn some dances and drink bubbly together on regular monthly Sunday afternoons at the gorgeous heritage listed Ainslie Arts Centre.

What is the LGBTQI+ Elders Dance Club?
The LGBTQI+ Elders Dance Club is a monthly social dance event for lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender and intersex people aged 55+ conceived by All The Queens Men (ATQM) and presented across Australia and internationally with local community partners.

For more information about the Dance Club by All The Queens Men visit: https://allthequeensmen.net/projects/lgbti-elders-dance-club/

What’s involved?
You’ll be part of planning all the fun parts of the event including decorations and fabulous outfits, discussing music, choosing yummy food and more.

We’ll be catching up via Zoom before the event so we can nut out details and answer any questions you may have. The next ZOOM catch up is Thursday 29 October at 4pm please RSVP by Monday 26 October to Adelaide on the details below.

You can be involved as much and as often as you’d like, be part of the planning or come for a boogie first, our dancehall doors are always open if you want to join us.

When do we start?
Our first dance is on at 1pm – 3pm, Sunday 15 November at Ainslie Arts Centre, during the annual SpringOUT Festival. https://springout.com.au/
