Its January and therefore time for Melbourne’s Midsumma Festival. Frankly dears, the whole thing makes me want to lie down with a shandy in a quiet corner. So much business going on. So many opportunities to be trapped in awkward social situations. And so, inspired by Clareifications guide to Midsumma 2019 I thought I might contribute an introverts guide.
In the immortal words of Hannah Gadsby. Where do the quiet gays go??
Queer Economies at Abbotsford Convent
Art exhibitions are a great introvert friendly activity, and if you are attending this one you can get drink or bite to eat at Cam’s or disappear into one of the Convents quiet corners for a picnic.
MQFF @ the Drive In
If you are like me and the sort of introvert who loves to also belt out a show tune or two, this is just the ticket. Grab a friend or two and drive out to Coburgia for a night of summer lovin’. Or go alone, no-one is going to judge. If your car has tinted windows no-one will even know.
Panopticon by Simona Castricum
Simona’s work is transcendent. You can attend this event alone, or with a friend and just immerse yourself in the experience. No need for small talk.
Pride March 2019
And of course, you should join us for the GLAMprideVic contingent at the Pride March. It’s a MOST introvert friendly crowd.
Let us know you are coming or so we can give you important updates here.
