Big Gay Day announces iconic headline acts for 2022

Big Gay Day 2022 Courtney Act Vanessa Amorosi

It’s that time of year again, Big Gay Day 2022 is here! The 2022 headline acts have been announced, including Courtney Act, Vanessa Amorosi and Faker.

As entertainment restrictions lift in Queensland we can’t wait to get back out and celebrate again.

What better way to celebrate than with a Big Gay Day? And this year, it’s going to be out of this world!

Big Gay Day 2022

Big Gay Day 2022 is kicking off on Sunday, May 1st and it is all stations go.

This year the event is kicking off with a galactic space theme, so come in your most “out of this world” attire.

Since announcing the headline acts for the day, early bird tickets have already sold out.

With talent like this on stage, we’re not surprised.

Courtney Act

Courtney Act is absolutely everywhere these days and now she’ll be at Big Gay Day 2022.

After a brief rest from Mardi Gras, the international drag superstar will be taking to the stage on May 1st.

What’s she going to do? Probably everything.

We know Courtney Act can sing, dance and act, honestly we wouldn’t be surprised if she can fire twirl and juggle as well.

Expect Courtney to tear up the stage this year doing a bit of everything.

From one Australian icon to another, Vanessa Amorosi will take to the stage.


Vanessa Amorosi

Vanessa Amorosi has arguably one of the most recognisable and iconic voices in Australian music.

Her hit songs like Absolutely Everybody and Shine will forever live in the Australian consciousness.

After having a crack at the Eurovision crown in 2020 with her song Lessons in Love we are so glad to have her home.

And she of course brought the house down at this year’s Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

Vanessa has spent years songwriting in America, now she is back in Australia and ready to turn it up at Big Gay Day 2022.

Bring it on.

Faker, Sellma Soul, Ellen Reed, Kitty Glitter and more

As we can expect from a Big Gay Day lineup the acts keep coming all day on the main stage.

Australian band Faker will also be performing on the day.

Most known for their hit song This Heart Attack, Faker is fronted by openly gay singer Nathan Hudson.

Brisbane’s very own singing superstar Sellma Soul will also hit the stage.

Not to mention vocal powerhouse Ellen Reed, Drag DJ Kitty Glitter, Being Jane Lane and so many more.

The iconic mega drag will feature again this year showcasing as many drag queens as we can fit on stage together.

Meanwhile, the main stage is hosted by Brisbane’s one and only, Paul Wheeler.

2Spirits and also Diverse Voices have been announced as the community partners for 2022, these two organisations will receive a donation from Big Gay Day 2022.

While we get excited for the big day lets relive Vanessa Amorosi’s iconic Mardi Gras performance below:
