Big Gay Day 2021
Brisbane's annual queer street festival returns for its 21st 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 21st year, the annual event returns to The Wickham and the surrounding roadway for an afternoon and evening of music and celebratory mayhem.
Toppig the bill this year is Confidence Man doing a DJ set, plus Alice Ivy, Karen From Finance and Samantha Jade. With Briefs Factory International, Vanity Faire, Maxi Shield, Harry K, Ellen Reed, Reef vs Beef, House of Alexandria, Being Jane Lane, Ben Hazlewood and local DJs also on the lineup, you can expect quite the lively event when Sunday, May 2 hits.
Big Gay Day has proven to be the city's most colourful and diverse street festival for the past two decades, after all, and will continue to be so again in 2021. As always, there'll be carnival acts, multiple performance spaces, food trucks, themed pop-up bars and plenty of partying people on the agenda, as well as raising funds for six charity partners that help the LGBTQIA+ community: Queensland Aids Council, Australian Transgender Support Association Queensland, Brisbane Pride, Open Doors Youth Service, LGBTI Legal Service and QLife.
