Brisbane’s Little Gay Day at The Wickham Hotel is back for 2020, with this year’s event set to be celebrated across an entire weekend.
Kicking off next Friday 2 October and running until Sunday 4 October, the much-loved event will raise money for the Australian Transgender Support Association of Qld, Brisbane Pride Festival, Diverse Voices, LGBTI Legal Service, Queensland Council for LGBTI Health, and Open Doors Youth Service.
The Wickham Hotel has extended the annual event across the three days of the October long weekend to allow everyone to enjoy the fun in a socially distanced atmosphere.
Little Gay Day will feature over 35 LGBTQIA+ musicians, drag queens, and other performers donating their time to entertain and showcase their talents.
Brisbane favourites including drag icons Vollie La Vont and Tina Bikki, Jana Michelle, and The Voice Australia star Ellen Reed will be making appearances across the weekend.
After the success of its sister event Big Gay Day earlier this year, which raised $35,000 for charities, The Wickham is excited to be able to continue to host this smaller event to support the community.
“We are thrilled to once again be able to celebrate Little Gay Day with our patrons and help raise money for these charities that are very close to our heart,” said Stuart Black, Venue Manager at The Wickham Hotel.
“The decision to extend the day to a whole weekend allows us to ensure all of our customers feel safe and adhere to social distancing whilst enjoying the incredible entertainment on offer.
“Last year, Little Gay Day raised over $2,000, and we hope that this year we can achieve even more.”
Lucky door prizes, games, raffles, and passes to Rainbow Retrospective film screenings in partnership with Dendy Cinema in Coorparoo will all be up for grabs.
Cashless payments, social distancing measures, and extra cleaning have been implemented to help keep customers, entertainers, and the team safe.
The Wickham Hotel looks forward to welcoming customers to celebrate Little Gay Day 2020 next weekend.
The festivities will take place on Friday and Saturday from 5 pm to midnight, and on Sunday from 4 pm to midnight.
Entry to Little Gay Day will be by gold coin donation.
