The Watercooler

Come have a kiki and spill some tea with us as we kick-start the year with glitterbombs and gayness galore! Alllll the friends of Dorothy will be down at The Basement being loud, proud, fierce, and fabulous this Feb with PHRESH PRIDE.

Mainard Larkin, Holly Hudson and Marcus Mackenzie give us 3 very different takes on their modern flavours of pride in a celebration of queerness and you're absolutely invited! Come join the party... you know you want to.

Issue #44 is hosted by the ever-sassy Todd Waters, proudly gay, very bald and one of the masterminds behind The Watercooler. You might also know him from the hit ATC show, BOYS or his mighty fine work from behind the customer service desk at The Warehouse.

Inspired by many well-known storytelling events and podcasts held worldwide (The Moth, This American Life), The Watercooler is a platform for people from all walks to tell stories both true and imagined. Storytellers are given a simple brief to share a story inspired by the month’s theme, whether based on real-life experiences or entirely fictional.
