Inner Brisbane events, South Brisbane and South Bank, West End

Proud celebrations

Musgrave Park bounded by Cordelia, Russell and Edmondstone Streets is West End’s home for some of the larger outdoor events. Thousands of people walked, skipped and sang their way to the park for the weekend’s gay and lesbian Pride celebration which kicked off with a rally at the Roma Street Forum, at 10am and wound it’s way over the Victoria Bridge to South Brisbane.

An estimated 10,000 people attended Fair Day, which boasted 25 stands from an array of cultural, community, social and business organisations, including the Queensland Association for Healthy Communities (QAHC), Brisbears, the Queensland Police, Centrelink, Manhunt, Switch 1197 AM and Queensland Pride Magazine.

Carnival rides, a sideshow alley, and of course, drag shows kept everyone entertained. Fair Day was followed by a number of events on Saturday night, including the Official After-Party at the Wickham Hotel and the L-Fling Women’s Dance Party at Uber nightclub, West End.

Here’s one party-goer determined to have a great time!
