Women at Glitter Festival 2014Don’t miss out on these exciting events

You will want to keep your schedules open from 28 September to 5 October for the Gold Coast City’s inaugural GLITTER Festival!

In a first for The Arts Centre Gold Coast, Glitter will see Centre programming undertaken in true festival style. Each day features sequential performances, allowing patrons to move easily from one show to the other – even taking their drinks with them or stopping to view curated art exhibitions along the way!

One of Glitter’s ambitions is to provide the Gold Coast LGBTIQAP+ community and all Festival patrons, with a platform for social interaction in a fun and safe environment. Accessible to all are a number of free activities and events that allow people to connect, share, laugh and engage with one another.

Check out some of the events lined up for this exciting week!

Glitter Race Day

Love the races? Love a good time? Glitter Race Day on the Gold Coast is the place to be: Canapes all day long, best-dressed competitions (best-dressed butch, best-dressed femme), live cabaret and more!

5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche

Earth may be on the brink of destruction, but nothing could be worse than… meat in a quiche!  It’s 1956 and the Cold War is at its peak. But even the threat of total annihilation won’t stop the charming widows of the Susan B Anthony Society For The Sisters of Gertrude Stein from getting together and celebrating at their annual quiche breakfast.

An uproarious, award-winning, Off-Broadway smash, that has audiences coming back for second helpings!

Lady Sings It Better

Smashing expectations one soaring harmony at a time, four women take on the western world’s most famous male musicians and reinvent them. High energy, hilarious and devilishly bizarre adventure through the darkest corners of pop, rock, hip hop and RnB, Lady Sings it Better gets audiences dancing in their seats, faces aching from laughter.

Lady Sings it Better have enjoyed sold-out houses and critical acclaim across many festivals including Edinburgh Festival FringeSydney Mardi Gras and Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Glitter Fair Day

The biggest ‘family’ reunion of its kind… Celebrate as a united and inclusive Gold Coast community when the Evandale Lake becomes the perfect outdoor backdrop for a jam-packed day of entertainment, activity, picnicking, networking and community pride. Following the inaugural Pride Run, join in a full-day program of outdoor games and activities, community sharing, markets, music, service provider stalls, bands, DJs, food and drink.
