We are turning bloody 5 -We look back at some cracker moments over the last 24 months

By Sam Eacott

To celebrate Heaps Gay turning 5 we’ve been looking through our photo archives for some of the best moments of the last 24 months. We set out to do 5 years but got way too bored. Hope you can join us for a beer to celebrate on Nov 17th.

That time at Street Party #2 and Cakes Da Killa jumped down into the crowd and blew us away with his musical talents and amusing chat. (slutty)

Frankie Say’s The Leather Tribute Show OWNED the stage as they performed a tribute to the leather community in Sydney. (I don’t think we can ever beat it.)

The day we decide a lawn bowl comp was a good idea on the bigggest storm day of the year. All dressed up, all rained out but a bloody good time nonetheless. Fruit Bowl will be back and someone will be rained champion Fruities.

fortune shumba

South African born Fortune Shumba came out off from under rock and literally blew us away with this electro pop, dance moves and beautiful msgs of love around the country. Come back soon Fortune. & Sissi! Mardi Gras maybe?
