A Tit Talks panel

The Bearded Tit is a neighbourhood queer bar and creative space in Redfern, a place for emerging artists and for intersecting communities to come together. 

The team from The Bearded Tit will be bringing their much-loved The Bearded Tit Talks to the Art Gallery of New South Wales in a series curated by The Bearded Tit owner Joy Ng and radio presenter Kilimi.  

Kilimi will moderate a panel of talks with diverse LGBTQIA+ arts practitioners and community leaders about identity and belonging across LGBTQIA+, migrant and Western Sydney communities.

The event is part of WorldPride at the Art Gallery, an extensive program of art, performance, films, talks and more in association with Sydney WorldPride 2023.
