The Qwire brings together people from diverse sections of the ACT queer
community, their allies and supporters, to challenge stereotypes and more importantly build a bridge between the queer community and the non-queer community through music.
The Qwire, a non audition choir of around 100 performers, is focused on community inclusion, seeking to reducing social isolation, LGBTIQ awareness raising, reducing stigma and discrimination, and also engender creativity and fun which all leads to improved health and wellbeing.
