An innocuous message kick-starts the second ‘Year of Realising Things’ (as Kylie Jenner would put it) for Thomas – filled with realisations that allowed him to stop worrying and love his brain.
Thomas Parer is a creative producer, DJ, ex-lawyer and bon vivant living in Meanjin, probably best known for being the creator and producer of local queer dance party, Shandy. Thomas is passionate about creating safer spaces for people to connect and believes in the community building potential of parties, and that the dancefloor can serve as a means to imagine a better world and achieve collective liberation. Fuck yeah! He performed this piece at Brisbane Powerhouse in 2021.
