Glitter Festival, the Gold Coast’s first ever LGBT arts festival which will run 28 Sept – 5 Oct have announced the first three events in what has been promised to be a spectacular program.
The week will begin with a ‘Tacos and Tiaras’ party evening – play on QT’s infamous $3 Taco Tuesdays. Entry is free and includes a welcome drink and complimentary tiara. We are also told that there will be gorgeous attendants to service guests’ dining and beverage needs.
Next up is a Gold Coast ‘Pride Run’ which is set to be an explosion of colour, fun and fast moving feet. Participants are able to choose from the 5km Rainbow Run or Walk, the 3km Paws with Pride, the 70m High Heel Dash (sure to be a crowd favourite!) and 700m Little Flyers event for kids to 12 years.
The third announcement is a ‘Glitter Race Day’ to be held Saturday 3 October at the Gold Coast Turf Club. Promising to be a spectacular spring day of fillies, fascinators and fabulous fun, guests will mingle with local and national celebrities, enjoy fashions on the field (best female dress, best male dress), live music and a whole lot of horse!
Further announcements about the arts program are expected to be announced in the coming weeks, with the full program to be released on 3 August. For more information, please visit www.theartscentregc.com.au/glitter
