Are you not ready to stop the party? Maybe you don’t want to go back to your glitter-less life. Put the suit back in the cupboard and get out your Day-GLO body paint once again, Big Gay Day 2017 in Brisbane has you covered. Monday hangovers for us all.
Returning in 2017, Big Gay Day Street Festival on Sunday March 12th, is one of Australia’s most loved and welcoming festivals.Closing an inner-city street and dropping in an epic Main Stage, this year’s event delivers another incredible line-up of local, national and international acts, as well as some exclusive performances whilst all in a festival atmosphere complete with roving carnival acts and multiple entertainment spaces. This mainstay of the festival circuit is set to prove again why it has become such an iconic Australian Event and welcomed almost 50,000 rainbow party people and their friends over the last 16 years. Big Gay Day also has a serious side. Each year it raises much needed funds for its charity partners through a variety of initiatives including profit share, continuing the legacy of The Wickham Hotel’s support of the LGBT Community. Bring your squad, share the love, catch up with old friends and make new ones at the biggest, most colourful and diverse event for the LGBT community and their friends that Brisbane has to offer.
2017 CHARITY PARTNERS are Open Doors, QuAC, ATSAQ and Wendybird.
PROUDLY SUPPORTED BY: The Wickham Hotel, NOVA FM, HIV Foundation, QP, QNN and HERO Condoms
