Iconic LGBTQIA+ celebration Midsumma is back with a bang this month and as usual, the festivities will include the iconic annual Midsumma Pride March, descending down St Kilda's Fitzroy Street on Sunday, February 5. And local pub The Espy isn't about to let the occasion pass without throwing a fittingly huge afterparty.

Kicking off at 12pm, the free Post-Parade Party will see the venue go all out with rainbow decals and lighting, bold floral displays and other themed fun, while the tunes and entertainment will be rolling on through until late.

Highlights include famed London DJ Severino, Sunshine Disco Faith Choir in a special staircase gig, and a slew of drag and dance performances from local and international names including Jason Conti, Cushen, Sugar Plump Fairy, Juicy Fruit, Onyx and more.

Meanwhile, the bar is whipping up Pride-inspired rainbow slushies for $18 a pop, with $2 from each drink going to support the Victorian Pride Centre. The cocktails will be available from Friday, February 3–Sunday, February 5, with The Espy set to match the final fundraising tally with a donation of their own.
