Summer might be over, but, for what seems like 360-ish days of the year, Brisbanites are still willing and ready for a pool party. Tthe event happening at Musgrave Park swimming pool on March 18 isn't any old splashfest, though.For the second year in a row, it's all about celebrating several good causes.

Here's what's on the agenda at the Body Positive Pool Party: having a dip, having some fun, and reclaiming a space and a pastime in that have traditionally caused plenty of stress about beauty standards and gender norms. So, grab your togs and cannonball into action. On second thoughts, maybe scrap the last part. No one wants to be that person.

So, there'll be swimming, obviously. There'll also be live music, food, thematically linked art and market stalls. As for where the other worthy causes come in, that's thanks to the two beneficiaries of your entry fee — which starts at $5 and maxes out at $25, depending on what you can afford. One third of the proceeds will go to Warriors of the Aboriginal Resistance and and another third to Right to the City Brisbane for future events.
