Big Gay Week
View all events in this series
One of last year’s crowd favourites, the unstoppable cultural phenomenon that is Erotic Fan Fiction returns, with another adults-only night of fantastical tales where anything goes. This time, the Imperial Panda team asked writers they like to write a short piece of filth about a celebrity or fictional character, which they then read in public. Four writers turn their craft to a night of smut and hilarity that’s same-same but different.
This is a free event. Booking recommended.

At the Wheeler Centre we like to combine the celebratory with the cerebral. Between Midsumma and Mardi Gras, join us for the politics and the writing, the romance and the taboos, the agonies and the ecstasies of being queer.
