Partnership with Melbourne Gay & Lesbian Chorus

Black Apple Theatre is proud to partner with Melbourne Gay & Lesbian Chorus to deliver their 30th anniversary celebrations in the shape of a multifaceted program of public performances and events across Victoria.

We know that, empirically, queer narratives make a difference to the perception held by the wider community of LGBTQIA+ people, including influencing their behaviour at the polls on queer rights and issues. At Black Apple we have always believed that we shape the world we hope for through the stories we tell about ourselves, which is why our artistic practice for the last decade has centred upon creating social justice, particularly for the LGBTQIA+ community.

The same values informed our decision to partner with MGLC to produce their 30th anniversary season; artistically the performance outcomes are very different to Black Appleā€™s usual fare, but we see it as a perfect values fit in terms of creating opportunities for LGBTQIA+ people to self-represent, to tell their stories to the wider community and to create inclusive safe cultural and social spaces through community engagement and participation.


Black Apple Theatre is based in Castlemaine, Victoria on the traditional lands of the Dja Dja Wurrung people. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and acknowledge that sovereignty over this land was never ceded.
