Book your FREE Ticket
The Hypothetical has become a crowd favourite amongst the Midsumma festival line-up. The concept it simple, we take a panel of media personalities, politicians, clinicians, and community leaders and cast them into a fictional narrative to tackle some not-so-fictional social issues affecting our LGBTI communities.
It's an entertaining night as our panel are put on the spot for a candid responseand unvarnished opinions on some sticky scenarios.
Over the past four years, the VAC hypotheticals have explored drug and alcohol use in social settings, travelled five years into the future to look at the state of federal politics, and solved a small town whodunit — all of them with a focus on LGBTI communities.
Comedian Adam Richard is returning to lead the way as the moderators. This year he'll be joined by:
• David Marr, journalist and biographer
• Denise Scott, comedian
• David Davis, Shadow Minister for Equality
• Harriet Shing, Labor MP Victoria
• Associate Professor Edwina Wright, HIV researcher and clinician
• Dean Arcuri, community broadcaster and entertainer
• Janet Jukes, CEO Lifeworks and LGBTI community leader
• Starlady, trans and gender diverse community advocate and activist
Rainbow Haven is on Tuesday 16 January at 7pm at Deakin Edge, Federation Square.
