Archer Magazine Issue #9: Family - Melbourne Launch Party | Brunswick Mechanics Performing Arts Centre | Friday, 15. December 2017

A very special launch party to celebrate Issue #9: Family, and also celebrating Archer Magazine founder Amy Middleton's last issue as editor before taking maternity leave.


--Issue #9: Family--
Polyamory, infidelity, HIV and gay men, trans kids, fat femme visibility. We don’t mean the traditional kind of family,
we mean the most important kind.

Get in quick - limited capacity for this party, held at the beautiful Brunswick Mechanics Institute, corner Sydney & Glenlyon rd. You know - that big white building next to ALDI and the Retreat.

Tix available now:
$10 entry donation
$5 concession donation
$20 entry with new issue
$0 - NOTAFLOF (no one turned away for lack of funds. To access these tickets please click here: )

Anyone is welcome to choose the $0 option, and for folks who are able to help contribute towards the event this is much appreciated to help cover venue hire costs and support our fundraising goals. Spaces are limited, so book early to avoid missing out!

Family friendly (humans <15yrs free) // Wheelchair accessible inc bathroom // Auslan Interpreted // If you have any other access requirements/things that would help you feel comfortable, please email events@

Come along to have a catch up with community, a drink (if you drink! $5 beers sponsored by Young Henrys), enjoy the early evening sunshine (partially licensed outdoor area), hear some readings/grab a copy of the mag, and have a little dance!

“I don’t feel like we need a nuclear family of our own to have people that care for us, and that we care for in fundamental ways.”
– Benjamin Law, Archer Magazine #9

Performers & readings TBA

Please note: If you choose the 'Entry + Copy of Issue #9: Family' option, this is exclusively for pick up at the event. We are unable to refund this option or deliver the magazine if folks cannot pick up on the day.

This event is a safer space, which means that when entering it, folks agree to work against homophobia, racism, transphobia, classism, fatphobia, ableism, and other forms of oppressive behavior. Please let someone from the Archer team know if this space isn't upheld.

Issue #9 launch party is brought to you by Archer events coordinator and drag performer, Dani ***.


We acknowledge our event will take place on stolen land. We pay our respects to Indigenous elders past, present and future. Sovereignty was never ceded.
