ACON have joined up Gay4Play, Gaydar and Gay Radio to present Hello, Kyiv, This is Sydney Calling: a celebration of the world’s biggest music competition. As their charity partner and $5 from every ticket sold will go to our HIV prevention and support programs.
Eurovision fans and tragics will experience a night of high camp and frivolity on Sunday 14 May at the Oxford Art Factory, with Charisma Belle guiding attendees through the official SBS broadcast of the Grand Final, which will be shown on two giant screens. There will also be a special performance by Australia’s Got Talent star, Greg Gould.
“Long before Idol, X Factor and Australia’s Got Talent, Eurovision put iconic acts such as ABBA and Celine Dion on the world map,” said Gay4Play organisers.“We will begin with a mash‐up of the finalist songs from 5.30pm, trivia will begin at 7.00pm, and finally the screening of the event itself from 7:30pm.
Gay4Play promises a riveting evening full of activities to sate any Eurovision fan’s desires. Fans are encouraged to dress up as their favourite past contestants or just in the theme of Eurovision extravagance, with prizes for best costumes. Free entry for the first 50 dressed in costume. Tickets are available on the door and online for $22.50, with $5 going to ACON.
