Melbourne's festival of queer culture grows bigger and prouder every year

Drag superstars, cult cabaret artists and gender-bending performance artists take over the city every January – not to mention the swag of free parties, events and more. 

In the past few years, the LGBTIQ-focused festival has began to come into its own as an international arts festival, pairing their suite of free events and parties with a program of theatre, cabaret, live art and music. It's been more than three decades since the first Midsumma launched and the festival now attracts talen from all corners of the globe. 

Whether you're queer or an ally, there's an event for everyone at Midsumma, so break out those rainbow threads and get celebrating!
