What does queer joy mean to you?
What special or everyday moments come to your mind? What (or who) incites this feeling of happiness?

Civic Opera Creations, Vienna based Reportage-Podcast Inselmilieu and the Volksoper Wien are looking for positive moments of queer life to give them their stage


Based on your experiences and stories collected from the Vienna LGBTQIA+ community, we develop new songs and text by queer creators and showcase them in a music theater evening, that centers the happy moments of being queer and stories full of joy, pride and empowerment. In addition we are creating a podcast episode and foto exhibition.

Our interview process for the summer is over. Thank you for participating in person, online or digitally. We are now creating text and music. 

Come see the process and show on the following days: 

Tuesday, May 28, 2024, at Volksoper Wien, Währinger Str. 78, 1090 Wien, for the raising of the Pride Flag as well as a first evening of musical impressions in the foyer.  

Tuesday, June 4, 2024, 7:30 pm at o*books, Bruno-Marek-Allee 24, 1020 Vienna for a talk about the interviews, what topics of queer joy we found, our libretto process and first texts. 

Tickets will go on sale soon, link will follow here.
