A monthly queer broadcast of video stories, where anyone can opt-in to share, and everyone gets to choose their level of participation.

"I really enjoy watching these, they make me feel really connected to my community.” - Campfire Stories attendee

Campfire Stories is an online gathering, with a live video host inside a private and secure chatroom, where audience members can join from anywhere with a high speed internet connection. Connect to community and peers via the vibrant chat, participate in live games facilitated by the host, win prizes from local queer-friendly businesses, and discover new video stories from those willing to share. No need to worry about dressing up - only the host has a live video feed!

All stories are pre-recorded and submitted by willing and open-hearted community members, with captioning and (optional) editing assistance from Campfire Stories organiser Teddy Darling. After each show the full playlist of videos can be rewatched on YouTube.

Be the first to witness these new stories and join the next Campfire Stories gathering on the first of every month.
