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)
We we convinced the City to allow us to take control of The Sydney Town Hall and a marching band decided to swing open the doors and officially open proceedings.
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.
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?
we had a party in the SNOW! Waaaaat! It was colourful and queer and magical and Handsome slayed!
We had our first trash pool thanks to The Stitchery Collective in Brisbane. Oh and it was HOT!
We had our first ever Newcastle event at the best shittest old man pub in town. The Lass O’Gowrie. It was so damn sweaty and fun.
