Queers United In Little Towns – All Set To Go!!!!

By Soundbloke - 20 November 2009 5

A week or so ago, I posted about an event that I had heard was set to go ahead in Braidwood NSW – Q.U.I.L.T (Queers United In Little Towns) www.quiltevent.wordpress.com

The post stirred up a little scepticism, however after talking to someone at the Braidwood Visitor Information Centre today, I was informed that the event is set to go ahead on Saturday 28th of November, not this weekend as I originally posted after hearing about it; word of mouth!

It’s being touted as an event that brings a litle bit of Mardis Gras to a spring day in a small country town. The organisers stress that it’s NOT a speciffically gay and lesbian event but one that’s aimed at bringing together queers of all persuasions in a celebration of alternative lifestyle, behaviour and dress!!

They have a great little website that has good links to other things going on in Braidwood.  www.quiltevent.wordpress.com

What’s Your opinion?

Kinda sad that the ‘queers’ couldn’t pick their own day, but had to interfere with a bunch of little old ladies in a small country town. Kudos.

Well bugger me sideways with an arm full of deck chairs!

(I’m still not convinced…) Butt this is funny:

“Please be responsible – There is an alternative event peacefully co-existing with Q.U.I.L.T. This event is organised by Anglican quilting ladies who make actual quilts. Their main event is “The Hanging of The Quilts.” We don’t want the “auto-erotic” contingent anywhere near that!!!!”

What? Two quilt events in Braidwood on the same day? Should be a hoot.
