One of Sydney’s best party events, Heaps Gay, started as a set of shindigs for the pleasure of Sydney’s LGBTQI community, and over the years, the crew have turned out some of the biggest parties this side of the rainbow. Next up in this long line of happenings? Heaps Gay is throwing a huge party for Sydney Mardi Gras, taking over The Factory in Marrickville.
Music-wise, the crew from YUMMY Melbourne are on board, alongside Zuri Akoko, Bahdoesa, LOW TON DJs, Oh Boy and a whole host more. There’ll be spoken word by Immani Love, a live stream of the Mardi Gras Parade, main stage visuals by Optic Soup, immersive visuals curated by QUEERTECH.IO, plus there’ll be a speakeasy whiskey bar pop-up, a fortune teller, silent cinema and the now infamous work, The Clitorati, by Deep Sea Astronauts.
You’re encouraged to wear “bad ’80s wedding attire”, so you might want to rewatch The Wedding Singer for a little inspiration.
