Bushrangers Basketball

Hobart – Come Out and Play!

BushrangersBasketball-4.png

Moonah Basketball Stadium, 17 Gormanstone Road, Moonah

Saturday 30 January 2021 | 2:30pm

FREE ENTRY

Bushrangers Basketball is Australia’s largest LGBTIQA+ basketball club. Our club’s big focus is inclusion, especially for our gender diverse and transgender pals. Hobart, Come Out & Play, will kick off our 2021 Tassie season with a bang and showcase our non-gendered mixed basketball rules

in an exciting Bushie’s exhibition match at Moonah Stadium.

We love basketball but it can be a big binary bin-fire for some of us in the community. Our new mixed basketball rules mean everyone can ‘Come Out & Play’ irrespective of their sexuality, gender identity or sports ball skillz.

It’s not just a game, it’s a dance with a game going on in the middle. Throw some shapes on the sidelines to local DJ Mama de Leche and see first-hand why everyone wants to be a Bushranger! Half time won’t be a drag (ok maybe a fabulous one!) with a mystery half time performance.

Tickets are strictly limited and will go quickly to this free and super fun Tassie Pride event. Hobart, Come Out & Play is hosted in proud partnership with Glenorchy Basketball Association.

The post-game celebration will kick off at Boodle Beasley. For more info send an enquiry via www.bushrangersbasketball.com.

FINDING MY SPOT

FINDING MY SPOT

A Dramatized Rant Written & Performed byAndyAisbett

Finding My Spot follows the ramblings of Gilbert, a self-described underwhelming gay man who can’t seem to find his spot. Through his panicked dribbles, we discover the overwhelming pressure gay men endure in present day, and the past struggles and traumas that may interrupt their development. Can a young gay man be desirable if he’s not physically fit? Can he be valued at the house party if he doesn't crack a joke every 2-3 minutes? 

February 4th-6th at 7pm

In THE PEACOCK THEATRE, Salamanca place 

All Tickets are $15
