Journey into the shadows of a sexy world full of magick and mystery in this all-new version of the cult classic cabaret. Night of the Queer 2021 transforms tarot to embody the queer spirit, unleashing the magick of a gender-bending, diverse world that embraces Queerness in all its shades. This wild celebration of sexual diversity and freedom reveals the Empresses and Emperors, Kings and Queens that live within us all. Night of the Queer is an unforgettable journey that shows you should never run from your fate.

Since launching at TAPAC in 2015, Night of the Queer has become a highlight of Auckland Pride Festival, offering a platform for some of Auckland’s most talented queer performers and emerging queer artists.
