The TasPride Festival, Tasmania’s arts and cultural celebration for the GLBTIQ community, kicks off this Saturday with a Halloween opening party at Flamingos Dance Bar in Hobart.
The festival’s two-week program is a diverse mix of live music, picnics, stand-up, drag shows, bingo and film screenings. The opening party’s Halloween theme is The Bear, The Bitch and The Wardrobe. In keeping with the Narnia-esque theme, partygoers will enter the venue via a giant wardrobe filled with coats. Entertainment will be provided by Dolly Diamond, a host of DJs, and surprise special guests.
Revellers who come dressed as their favourite fantasy character will be in with the chance to win a swag of prizes.
