28 January - Summer Bingay

With summer comes the festival season so get your party started at Summer Bingay!

Join us on Thursday 28 January as we dust off the Christmas tinsel, shake off the New Year’s confetti and greet the arrival of the festival season with a bang! We’ll be transforming the Beresford Hotel into a poolside playground. Think French Riviera meets Porpoise Spit. Don your best summer outfit (think Hawaiian shirts and novelty sunnies) – there are prizes for best dressed.

Our sunny hosts Charisma Belle and Naomi Palmer will be there to serve up naughty calls, cheeky banter and hilarious wit. And of course, our Bingay volunteers will attend to your every whim.

Thanks to our amazing sponsors, we have loads of great prizes to be won including theatre tickets, homeware goods, gift vouchers and tickets to the Mardi Gras Party!

Dropping balls since 1999, Bingay is a Gay Sydney institution. Now in its 22nd year, all funds raised from Bingay goes towards supporting important programs and services delivered by ACON that improve the health and wellbeing of sexuality and gender diverse people.
