Little Gay Day 2021
3 October 2021
The Wickham Hotel, 308 Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley
Little Gay Day will take over The Wickham Hotel on Sunday October 3 from 4pm until late, headlined by Sahara Beck as well as showcasing local talent. Donations on entry will support Diverse Voices, a local LGBTQIA+ charity that operates QLife, a queer support hotline through which people can receive peer counselling for issues such as gender identity and sexuality.
After the success of its sister event Big Gay Day earlier this year – raising tens of thousands of dollars – and the past two years of Little Gay Day, The Wickham is thrilled to host this event in support of the LGBTQIA+ community and this amazing charity.
“We are excited to once again be able to celebrate Little Gay Day with our patrons and help raise money for this charity, which is very close to our heart,” said Megan Edwards, The Wickham Hotel Venue Manager. “We hope to grow Little Gay Day each year and it is fantastic that we have added this event to our schedule for the last three years, in addition to the Big Gay Day celebration. We cannot wait to see everyone, from loyal customers to new, at this fantastic event.”
