#522 World Pride: Love Stories

World Pride celebrations are going to be happening all around Sydney from 18th February to 5th March. In honour of this, All The Best is going to be sharing a couple of episodes that are focused on themes that are of significance to the LGBTQIA+ community.

This week, since it’s also Valentine’s Day, we’re sharing stories of queer love. A love that often looks different to the cis-heteronormative version that we see reflected in mainstream media.

Lil + Lore

In our first story, we hear a real life love story that sounds as if it came out of a queer romance novel.

Produced by: Mell Chun

To Build A Home

In this story, Nevo shares a love story which reflects a queer experience that is common, but not often spoken about.

Narrated by: Nevo Zisin

This story was originally shared as part of Queerstories, a national LGBTQI+ storytelling project curated by Maeve Marsden.
