It’s time to be queer together again, lovers. This year, while so many of our queer spaces, dancefloors and meeting places remain closed, Day For Night will beam directly into your house for an extraordinary night of queer performance, club music, loungeroom dancing and sacred revelry. We can still dance in our homes and this year Day For Night will bring the party to you, with some of our most beloved queer performers, artists, DJs and troublemakers reconnecting us, as we voyage together through the night.
Tune in from anywhere across Sydney or the world! Dress up, bring your A-game, turn your webcams on and dance together across space and time with queer family, via our superqueer digital channel. Reconnect with your body through a special club mix of Betty Grumble’s iconic Grumble Boogie; learn how to limb sync with Weird Nest; and marvel at Sidney McMahon’s stunning Day for Night installation…a little piece of it might even show up at your home. Special performances by Jamaica Moana and Demon Derriere will light up your house, Garden Reflexx will bring some cinematic wonder to your living room, and Stereogamous will get you on your feet, with an all-night DJ set…and there’s more to be announced. To top it off this night of queer excellence will be hosted by Sydney party legends Kelly Lovemonster and Stelly G.
Keep loving, keep fighting, and keep connecting—it’s time to come together again.
