“A tornado of technicolour proportions will hit Fortitude Valley,” the team teased.

“Follow the rainbow brick road to the land of Wick and you’ll discover there’s no place like Big Gay Day.

“Grab your best Judy’s, click your heels three times, and head under the rainbow for one incredible party.”

This week, Big Gay Day early bird tickets sold out, with first release tickets available Wednesday 10am. (February 14).
