Wickham Hotel Hosts Big Gay Day 2024

With a long history of closing down the inner-city street outside The Wickham Hotel, 2024 will be no different. Fabulous Paul Wheeler will be your MC once again, having hosted previous Big Gay Days and regular events as a much-loved member of Brisbane’s LGBTQIA+ community.

The Wickham has become one of Brisbane’s leading entertainment venues with the one-day festival previously hosting internationally renowned artists like Boy George and The Veronicas and more.

Each year Big Gay Day raises around $10,000 for LGBTQIA+ charities from your attendance and, in 2024, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to two LGBT organisations.

Venue Manager Mark Baker is anticipating another extravagant day. “Big Gay Day has become such an iconic day in the calendar for our community. It’s all about being loud, proud, and having a lot of fun. We also raise money for important charities in the LGBTQIA+ space and we’re so excited for what’s coming in 2024.”

Tickets are on sale now.
