About the artists

Drag! Pole dancing! The Wheel Elvis! Prepare for a cabaret extravaganza. Queer Stage Revolution is a cooperative where queer disabled performance artists can come together and lift ourselves and our art out of the background and into centre stage. Queer and disabled creative practices are crucial to society. They strengthen not only queer and disabled communities, but all communities contacting queer and/or disabled people. Individual voices calling for improved inclusion and participation are often drowned out. So sit, stand, and wheel with us as we roar!
