Absolutely Queer is an exhibition celebrating contemporary queer creativity for Sydney WorldPride 2023.
It showcases Sydney’s leading queer creatives who are reshaping attitudes towards their community through their work, creative processes and personal stories, and features costumes, design, artworks, fashion, activism and multimedia.
From installation and performance artists to videogame developers, cartoonists and fashion designers, these creatives form a diverse snapshot of LGBTQIA+ creativity and activism in Sydney.
Powerhouse Late: Queerbourhood, the official opening of the Absolutely Queer exhibition, celebrated the LGBTQIA+ artists in the exhibition and their communities.
Taking over the iconic Powerhouse Transport Hall, the event featured live performances, talks, tours and workshops hosted by some of Sydney’s legendary LGBTQIA+ creatives and was curated by Jonny Seymour and Paul Mac, who have been supporting Sydney’s emerging queer artists for decades.
