Mardi Gras has kicked off and the good times have well and truly arrived. One event that's not to be missed is Queer Art After Hours at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, co-presented by Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. Going down on Wednesday, February 26, the annual extravaganza is keeping the Gallery up late with an all-out celebration of Sydney's LGBTQIA+ community. Best of all, it's free.

You'll catch performances by boundary-pushing collective Gendermess and artist duo Stelly G & The Sharman, as well as dazzling drag by the stars from the documentary Black Divaz: Felicia Foxx, Tyra Bankstown and Sarah Moany. Plus, the whole evening will be hosted by award-winning journalist Patrick Abboud.

Other highlights include a tongue-in-cheek art lecture by drag queen Verushka Darling; queer short films and performances curated and hosted by Kelli Jean Drinkwater; art tours with TabOriginal of NITV's deadly art game show Faboriginal; a paper sculpture workshop with Jordy Bos; and a bunch of queer stories behind some of the Gallery's artworks.

There'll also be a pop-up bar and live music by Triple-J Unearthed musician Lupa J and Melbourne-based DJ HipHopHoe, plus singer-songwriter Zaya and vocalist-violinist Eric Avery, who'll be playing intimate performances amongst the art.

Queer Art After Hours will take place on Wednesday, February 26, from 5–10pm.
