QNews Magazine will host a queer art exhibition to celebrate Pride Month in Brisbane in September.
This year’s Pride Festival kicks off on September 8. The Queer Art Exhibition launches on September 14 as a free showcase for LGBTIQ artists and queer artwork to help lift their profiles and sell their work.
QNews Magazine is proud to be hosting the event in our West End premises. Guests will be able to meet the artists and purchase artwork, with the artists receiving all proceeds.
“We’re gratified by the overwhelming interest from local artists,” QNews Magazine publisher Richard Bakker said.
“We’re currently reviewing artists and artwork now and we’ll be in touch with them before August 24.”
The exhibition will be launched with a special event on September 14 from 7 pm, at the Trash & Treasures opening night.
The event will mix the highbrow and the low – fine queer art and drag performances – and will be held at creative and collaborative space The Myx at 349 Montague Road in Brisbane’s West End.
Bookings essential for queer art exhibition
The Myx is supported by Brisbane multicultural publication SIBW and QNews Magazine, providing affordable gallery and workshop space to members of minority communities, including LGBTIQ and Indigenous/Torres Strait Islander artists of all genres.
The official launch of this year’s Brisbane Pride Festival starts with a street party in Bowen Hills on September 8. The event will also see a group of eight local same-sex couples 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 with headliner Anthony Callea is held on Brunswick Street and at New Farm Park on Saturday, September 22.
