An elegant salon to acknowledge the past, celebrate the present and create the future

Created by acclaimed performance makers All The Queens Men, The Coming Back Out Salon is designed as a gift. Proudly acknowledging the resilience of older LGBTIQ+ people who have lived through it all, it’s also a safe space for those just discovering themselves later in life.

The Salon is a night of cultural significance where rainbow allies can sit alongside LGBTIQ+ elders to eat, drink, dance, reminisce and dream together into the future.

“The Coming Back Out Ball makes the invisible visible, the forgotten remembered and the past treasured and valued.” – LGBTIQ+ elder.
