Canberra Qwire brings sparkling fabulousness to The Q with SHOW TUNES

On the 22nd and 23rd of October 2016, The Canberra Gay and Lesbian Qwire performed a repertoire of favourite show tunes at The Queanbeyan Performing Arts Centre that had them singing all the way home. Show Tunes is Qwire’s largest production to date and it truly had it all: hope, love, triumph – and just a touch of despair (not every musical character has a happy story after all). Featuring standout moments from musicals old and new such as Evita, Les Miserables, Matilda, The Sound of Music and fourteen other greats, it’s a lifetime of shows packed into one night.

Musical director Leonard Weiss described Show Tunes as: “a spectacular undertaking for Qwire – our largest show yet. Having the opportunity to spend an entire year honing our musicality and performance skills made for a truly unique experience.”

AIDS Memorial - Candlelight Vigil

Sun, 15 May 2016
Candlelight Memorial events are held across the world to honour those who have lost their lives to HIV and AIDS. As one of the world’s oldest and largest grassroots mobilization campaigns for HIV awareness, the International AIDS Candlelight Memorial takes place annually and is led by over 1,200 organizations in more than 115 countries.  

Globally the theme for 2016 was ‘Engage, Educate, Empower’ and served as a call to work in solidarity to break down barriers of stigma and discrimination, and to give hope to new generations.
Hosted by ABC radio presenter Genevieve Jacobs, including guest speakers Senator Katy Gallagher, Professor John Dwyer, founder of the Australian Health Care Reform Alliance and Emeritus Professor at the University of NSW, and well known community member Scott Malcolm, the memorial included musical performances by QWIRE and the traditional candle lighting ceremony.
