Local queer artists talk visibility at The Blue Room


Some of Perth’s most fabulous LGBTIQ+ talent are coming together to discuss what it means to be a queer artist this Wednesday evening.

Mitch Whelan, Sally Richardson and Veronica Jean Jones will be on the panel, touching on a range of issues from the postal survey on marriage equality to being a visible queer artist in Western Australia.

A local drag superstar, VJJ has spent nearly a decade on the scene, winning the title of Queen of the Court in 2011. Now a mainstay at Connections Nightclub and The Court Hotel, VJJ has worked with the WA AIDS Council, Fringe Festival, TAFE WA, runs her own cosmetic glitter line, and appeared on the cover of OUTinPerth.

If you’d like to join the discussion, head to blueroom.org.au to register your interest. The forum will be held at 6:30pm on Wednesday 20th June at The Blue Room.
