Central Queensland to host First Ever Fair Day


I have never been to Australia…yet.

So when I read about The very first Central Queensland Fair day will raise its rainbow flag this weekend on the 21st of May.  –  I Googled it. 
I came up with 2 VERY DIFFERENT photos! So I am not sure which is more accurate! 

The very first of its kind for Central Queensland, the CQ Fair Day is a chance for locals to celebrate the diversity of the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender communities. Head of the organising committee Ric Stumpf has commented the celebration of the LGBT community will be the running theme of the day, and he hopes it attracts crowds from all over central Queensland.

Live entertainment, including hosting duties from drag diva Vanessa Wagner, market stalls and fun activities will be set for the course of the day with the Rockhampton Campus of CQ University playing as the hosting ground.



With the Tropical Alternatives Film Festival (TAFF) already a key event in Rockhampton for the gay community, organisers are no doubt hoping the CQ Fair Day is a success so the Central Queensland LGBT community have two key events on their calendars, as well as bringing awareness to local gay-friendly businesses, health services, performers and entertainers.

QAHC   Health Promotion Officer Tim Spratling welcomes the new event. “For the first time in Central Queensland, in one spot, the opportunity exists to raise awareness of local gay-friendly businesses, health services, performers and entertainers. The CQ Fair Day will allow the LGBT communities to gain access to information on health, sexuality and support services.

Central Queensland Fair Day takes place on Saturday  21st of May at the CQ University, Rockhampton campus. Let us know how the day goes! And  take some photos!
