We The Queers is a new night of alt drag, queer cabaret, art and performance created, organised and hosted by Bordello Theatre. At We The Queers we believe that every art form and mode of expression is a valid one. Our primary aim is to provide a platform for queer and diverse voices in the Teeside area as we feel the opportunity for these voices to be heard is rare. We aim to cover as many areas of performance as possible, offering a space to perform to both established and new or upcoming performers. We are also keen to promote other forms of queer art by making use of the space at The Auxiliary and presenting a chance for visual artworks to be exhibited. Taking a rebellious stance We The Queers aims to create a push back against political powers that wish to see us silenced. We are keen to hear from any North East based artists who wish to be involved and support our aims and values.
Our first event took place at The Auxiliary on the 2nd of November and featured performances from Venus Dimillo, Crystal Decanter, Ill Health, Angel Leigh, Tin Foil and Venus Retrograde. The space also featured visual art and decoration from John James Perangie.
