According to national statistics, about one in every fifteen Australians identify as gay. This doesn’t even include other members of the LGBT+ community, so one thing’s for sure- we’re growing louder and prouder than ever before.
With this growth in our numbers, we have more excuses than ever to throw Pride festivals and celebrate what makes our community special. Here, we’re going to discuss some of the best festivals that Australia has to offer so that you can get your party on.

ChillOut High Tea
ChillOut High Tea is a classy festival that lets you feel posh and sophisticated. This LGBT+ high tea on 7 March is an occasion to enjoy delicious food and drink with other queer people and make new friends before the Chillax with JAX and festival events.
You’ll be served a three-tiered tea tray composed of both sweet and savoury foods including scones, finger sandwiches, and more. This is accompanied by a wide variety of different teas. While you eat, you can listen to our local musician duo, VIDA Jazz.Learn More
Chillax With JAX
After getting the party started with ChillOut high tea, you’re going to want to get excited for the main event. Chillax with JAX is an outdoor concert with Perth-based music artist JAX. It takes place from 4:30 until 7:30 PM right at Bellinzona resort.
Join looping artist JAX on the Bellinzona Resort’s gardens. We’ll be sitting under a huge inflatable rainbow to celebrate your LGBT+ pride. JAX will be playing a combination of original music and covers of other popular songs with a personal flair. You won’t want to miss hanging out with him and eating pizza and drinking cocktails while sitting in a comfy lawn chair.
Not only that, but this is a space for LGBT+ people like yourself to kick it and be your true self – join the social community with #BEYOUatBELLI.
