The QueerSA Event Diary. Don't get caught out with nowhere to go

The QueerSA Event Diary is broadcast every weekday afternoon, every hour, just past the half-hour, between 2.32pm & 5.32pm, bringing you a digest of upcoming events around SA for that day & what to watch out for in the coming weeks. Occasionally, we interview organisers & artists of upcoming events, where you can learn their event in their own words.

If you missed the latest episode of the QueerSA Event Guide, listen to the podcast here or download it to your computer or smartphone.

To submit your event, click here* (PDF/538Kb) to download the QueerSA Event Diary Submission Form, then complete & email it to qed@queers.co.za. We’ll be in touch within 72 hours to finalise your submission.

* We are aware that there was an issue with the download link for the submission form. This has now been rectified and tested. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
