Brisbane Pride is getting ready for the 2022 Queens Ball awards at Brisbane City Hall.
The organization has announced the date for this year’s awards and opened voting for the theme.
It will be the 61st year for the event since its inception.
Queens Ball Awards 2022
The Queens Ball awards are the longest-running LGBTQIA+ event in the world.
Originating on Tamborine Mountain 61 years ago the event was a fun and camp celebration of all things queer.
In a time when it was still illegal to be gay in Queensland, the event was vitally important to so many.
With the event now under the control of the Brisbane Pride festival it continues to grow from strength to strength.
Now taking place in its permanent home at Brisbane City Hall the event plays host to nearly 500 guests each year.
The awards celebrate the achievements of the many LGBTQIA+ members of the Brisbane community.
This year Brisbane Pride has announced the 61st Queens Ball Awards will take place Saturday the 25th of June 2022.
