Question Time - Andrew Barr, ACT Chief Minister


What do you get when you ask a prominent someone twenty rapid-fire, unrehearsed questions? Truth, dare, obfuscation or heartfelt honesty? We’re hoping for a bit of all of these when we meet Andrew Barr, ACT Chief Minister for 'Question Time'.

For this special SpringOUT event there's one special question we're asking the CM - 'is Canberra Australia's most LGBTIQ inclusive city?' We'll be looking at the history of LGBTI reform in the ACT, touching on the five days of legally recognised same-sex marriage and looking ahead with the recent establishment of an Office for LGBTIQ Affairs.


Tickets: $12 (includes a complimentary glass of house wine or soft drink)

Andrew Barr is a proud Canberran, social progressive, economic reformer, sports lover and the current Chief Minister of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). When he is not busy being Chief Minister, Andrew enjoys watching any of Canberra’s sporting teams including the Brumbies, the Capitals and the Raiders. He is a self-described Hawthorn FC tragic and enjoys watching the Hawks when he can find the time.
