Glitter Festival – The Gold Coast’s first ever gay, lesbian, bi, trans, intersex and queer festival – will burst onto the glitter strip from Monday!

An entire week of sparkly events are planned to celebrate and honour the Gold Coast’s LGBTIQAP+ community and bring the entire Gold Coast together.


From comedy to cabaret, visual arts to long lunches, motion pictures and a race day at the Turf Club; Glitter has something for everyone with a mixture of both ticketed and free events.
