RESPECT—A Queer Affair is about love, hope and, of course, respect. It is an art exhibition and schedule of community events aiming to counteract the negative messaging targeted to the LGBTIQ+ community—especially the youth—and bringing it and its supporters together in a time of disharmony and discord. All events brought to you by Brunswick Street Gallery, Hares & Hyenas and the future ensemble.
