Big Gay Day 2017
Brisbane's annual LGBT street festival returns for its 17th year.
It's not every day that an inner-city street shuts down for an onslaught of music and fun. No, just Big Gay Day. Now in its 17th year, the annual event returns to The Wickham and the surrounding roadway for an afternoon and evening of music and celebratory mayhem.
Topping the bill is a name Ru Paul's Drag Race fans will know and love: season four winner Sharon Needles. She's joined by Yolanda Be Cool, Peyton, Nat Conway, Ellen Reed, DJ Citizen Jane, Sveta, Estee Louder and more, including Mega Drag, akaBrisbane's biggest drag show.
Consider them the icing on the cake on what has proven the city's most colourful and diverse street festival for the past 16 years, and will continue to do so again in 2017. Roving carnival acts, multiple performance spaces and plenty of partying people are also on the agenda, as is raising funds for charity partners that help the LGBT community.
