With the first ever Asia Pacific Outgames and the Midsumma festival soon to explode in Melbourne, gay pride is in overdrive. And now the cultural capital is home to a tribute to one of Australia’s biggest gay icons.

A unique and never-seen-before Kylie Minogue exhibition has gone on display in Chapel St.

Lifelong Kylie follower Troy Walker is exhibiting his personal collection of Kylie memorabilia, spanning the entire 20-year career of the pop princess.

This rare assortment of Kylie collectibles includes merchandise from Kylie’s sell-out tours of the past two decades and books and magazines from around the world printed in a number of languages.

Notable items include rare and limited edition Kylie Evian water (only a few thousand made), Kylie matches, a signed Australian flag and the Dancing Queen promotional CD.

“[Kylie’s] smile and her general aura just make people feel good,” Walker said.

“I hope by sharing my collection that I can bring a little touch of Kylie sunshine into the lives of others.”

The free exhibition is on at the Virgin Megastore on Chapel St for a limited time only.
