Imbi The Girl
Welcome to the inaugural Heaps Gay Qween's Ball. Don yourself in the most luxurious dress up an op shop can provide. Assemble your very own royal queer family and step through the arches of the grandest, fanciest building in town, the Sydney Town Hall for the experience of a lifetime for Vivid Sydney. Created in partnership with the legends at 42 Below and Young Henrys, this huge fancy dress spectacular ball will be an inaugural landmark in calendar years to come.
Spanning two grandiose stages, the Heaps Gay Qweens Ball will be feature Qweens in all forms. On the musical side, power duo Electric Fields Music + local legends HANDSOME and imbi the girll will send sounds soaring through the iconic building while DJ supports include Lorna Clarkson, SEZZO SNOT Cunningpants Nick Spurway YO! MAFIA ++ will keep the party going.
In the art department we are bloody stoked to welcome the hosts from Kempsey RSL and all-time talented legends the “Dreamtime Divas’, straight off the back of their performances in the Miss First Nations Pageant Darwin and appearance in Black Divas at Queer Screen – Mardi Gras Film Festival last month. It doesn’t stop, 'Frankie Says' will be paying homage to the history of the leather scene in Sydney + three vogue houses join forces for a show stopping performance.
We'll have our usual antics, drag qweens, burlesques, roaming performances.
FINALLY, we are rolling around on the floor with excitement to announce that all-time funny gals and 2018 Logie Award nominees Hannah May and Eliza Reilly will be taking time out of their hectic schedule to host the evening and crown the Qweens in our fancy ball dress up competition. Feeling royal? Fall into a world of cloaked luxury for one sensory night of Queer expression at Sydney's most iconic venue — The Sydney Town Hall! (Don’t be late, ball starts at 7.30pm sharp)
