“Big Gay Day is a day for the LGBTQIA+ and wider community to come together and enjoy amazing acts and raise money for charities that really make a difference. Last year was the biggest Big Gay Day in its history, we sold out and raised $10,000 for charity. We are looking forward to this year being even bigger!” said Kelly Harrison, The Wickham Venue Manager.

This year, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Australian Transgender Support Association of QLD (ATSAQ) and LGBTQ Domestic Violence Awareness Foundation.
