The June Long Weekend has been a special time for the LGBTQI community of the Blue Mountains for decades. In addition to the already well established events, Pink Mountains Youth will host the second annual dance party for young LGBTQISSA+ people from the Blue Mountains on Sunday June 11 at Katoomba.

Called The Glitter Gala, this dance party event is an alcohol and drug free event. It provides a safe space for young lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, same-sex attracted, non-heterosexual and questioning people to meet and socialise.

The dance will be run by volunteers from the community.

Pink Mountains Youth and The Glitter Gala has been funded by the community through various fundraising events including Alphabet Soup Cinema, a community picnic and by Mount Vic Flicks who have hosted Eurovision Song Contest screenings for the last two years. Without their generous support neither the regular group nor the now annual dance would be possible.


The Glitter Gala will take place at the Katoomba Leura Community Centre (in front of the Coles and Blue Mountains Cultural Centre building), 83 Katoomba Street, Katoomba  (see map below) from 7pm until 10pm. Entry is $10. Soft drink and snacks will be available.
