LGBTQI+ musicians play tribute to their favourite queer artists, performing covers and reinventions of the songs that helped shape our identities and define our communities. Songs of protest, thumping dancefloor beats, speakers mounted precariously on garish parade floats…
From George Michael to Janelle Monae, Anohni to Ani Di Franco, Electric Fields to Elton John, Courtney Barnett to Frank Ocean, any genre is up for grabs. The only rule? The songs performed must have been made famous by another LGBTQI+ artist.
Part of the wildly popular Queerstories storytelling project, expect heart, soul, stellar vocals and a whole lot of fabulousness.
Homage has played to packed crowds at The Factory Theatre and The Seymour Centre for Sydney Mardi Gras.
Hosted and programmed by Maeve Marsden, the event has featured artists Brendan Maclean, June Jones, iOTA, Jordan Raskopoulos, Marcus Whale, Cash Savage, Seann Miley Moore, Mystery Carnage, Benhur Helwend and Sports Bra.
