For one night only the IMA courtyard will be transformed into a queer wonderland by Pride artists Jessica Astrid Darcey and Mary Alexander, best known for her male drag persona Tricky Boombang. Join us for an inclusive celebration of our LGBTIQ+ Arts Community in partnership with Brisbane Pride Festival and Goose Goose Ganda.

Shown in conjunction with performances and installation outside, Wiradjuri artist Karla Dicken’s video THE HONEY AND THE BUNNY will be showing for the evening in the IMA Screening Room. The evening also features fierce DJ sets from Black Amex and Litea Barbara Fuata, playing queer classics with a twist.

This is an inclusive event, with all welcome. Celebrate the coming together of our diverse community for a vibrant and festive evening!

Let us know you will be attending on Eventbrite here.
