Oslo Queer likes to think different and challenge all kind of norms which is often taken for granted in our society, both outside and within our own community. The queer community is very often all about alcohol and getting drunk. That's why Friday is our party
without drinking day, entirely dedicated to create awareness and discuss
on how we can have fun without getting tanked.
On Friday we will hold a
workshop on how to party without having to get always pissed, and
discuss the equivalence between alcol and having fun. You don't agree? Join us on Friday and we'll show you how we queer our partying culture!
There will also be a childrens corner, drawing material and a queer babysitter! So bring your children and join our queer alcohol free space!
Open Mic Session at the Oslo Queer Festival will be a combination of music and
text reading (but also performance art, poetry, drama, you decide!) where the
public and festival participants will have the possibility of expressing
themselves for a few minutes. You decide whether to sing a song, read a piece
of text or recite a short poem. Common theme for the sessions of course is
OMS will open at 8.00 p.m. (so be on time) and also the public will have a
chance to come on stage and speak up (under the benevolent moderation of
Tiwaz). In a relaxed atmosphere, each individual short performance will
alternate with music. This is the ideal opportunity to feel how much others
like your work and share with us your inner queer side.
Since time is limited to two hours, performances should not exceed a few
minutes. In order to simplify the logistics of the OMS, you are welcome to
contact us with your proposal or idea beforehand. In addition to the
microphone, a projector will be available, but if you wish to make use of it,
you need to inform us in advance: firstname.lastname@example.org
