Brisbane Pride Choir Hosts New Film 'DROWN' For IDAHOTThe Brisbane Lesbian and Gay Pride Choir is once again marking IDAHOT Day with a combined performance and film evening at New Farm Cinemas

In the new Australian film DROWN (R18+), Len is a Surf Lifesaving champion, a legend in the cloistered surf club just like his father. However, when the younger, faster, fitter Phil arrives at the club, Len’s legendary status starts to crumble. Len sees Phil arriving in the company of another man; a man Phil gives a farewell kiss to. Phil is gay. Over the summer season, Len starts to form unexpected, confusing feelings for Phil. When Phil de-thrones Len at the annual surf competition, Len and his buddy Meat take Phil out on an intoxicated bender through the seedy city. Jealousy, homophobic fear and unrequited lust culminate in a tragic late-night trip back to the beach where Len seeks total oblivion.

“The event, including the screening of new Australian film, DROWN, is about raising awareness of the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and intersex people in Australia and globally,” said Katherine Richardson, Choir President. “Through our performances, we tell the stories of our lives and advocate for change and equality.”

The Brisbane Pride Choir recently participated at Sunshine Coast Pride Fair Day and will be performing in Hervey Bay on 30 and 31 May. During Brisbane’s Pride month of September, the Choir will be hosting ‘Pride does Eurovision’ at the Queensland Multicultural Centre theatre on 26 September. Concert tickets will go on sale in May.
