The much-loved sex and relationships advice series, Take It From Me, is back – and badder than ever, gleefully tossing up handfuls of laughter, love and stardust. Join us to celebrate queerness and launch the new edition of Archer Magazine: the Friendship Issue.
With an address from Archer Magazine editor-in-chief Lucy Watson, performance and reading from the new issue by contributor Mama Alto, and – of course – a panel of hilarious non-experts to give you advice you will love, but almost definitely shouldn’t follow. Hosted by the dashing Jess McGuire, there’ll be a stellar lineup of queer agony aunts including Nayuka Gorrie, Vanessa Muradian, and Alistair Baldwin.

Got a knotted romantic entanglement? A tricky friendzone dilemma? A hopeless crush?

Anonymously submit your hot messes and love quandaries before the event here then roll up to the Malthouse Outdoor stage and prepare to have all your troubles melt away*. Our 100% unqualified panel will puzzle over your problem before a live audience, then serve up terrible and totally context-free advice. Just the way you like it.

So, get loved up, and get over here.

* Troubles may not be so melty.
