Queensland artists are invited to register their interest for a free queer art exhibition organised by QNews Magazine as part of the Brisbane Pride Festival next month.

This year’s Pride Festival kicks off on September 8, and the “Q-Art Pride Exhibition” will be held in the weeks following as part of Brisbane Pride Festival Month.

QNews Magazine is proud to be hosting the event in our West End premises as a free showcase for LGBTIQ artists and queer artwork to help lift their profiles and sell their work.

There will be no commission required of any of work sold, but artists are asked to donate drinks and snacks for the exhibition days.

All types of artists will be welcome at the exhibition, including sculpture, photographers, painters and more.

The artist or a representative will be required to be present during the event, which will include an opening night event in mid-September and exhibition times on weekends. Selected artists will be advised of dates and times closer to the event.

To register your interest, please send your name, contact number, photos of artwork and bio if available to with the subject line “Pride Art Exhibition”. Applications close August 24.

This year’s Brisbane Pride Festival will be officially launched with a street party in Bowen Hills on September 8, which will also see a group of eight local same-sex couples get married on stage.

Now in its 29th year, the Brisbane Pride Festival is Queensland’s largest and Australia’s third largest LGBTIQ event.

More than 10,000 festival-goers attend events over a four week period in the month of September each year.

The 2018 Brisbane Pride Festival rally, march and fair day will be held on Brunswick Street and at New Farm Park on Saturday, September 22.

LGBTIQ community groups and organisations can register their events as part of the official Brisbane Pride Festival calendar and to get their events listed in the official 2018 Pride Guide in QNews Magazine.

Prospective performers and stallholders who want to take part in the Brisbane Pride Festival’s Fair Day can also register their interest on Brisbane Pride’s website.
