ARIA award-winning singer, Logie-nominated actress and Dancing With The Stars competitor, Samantha Jade will headline Moreton Bay’s biggest LGBTIQA+ celebration, PrideFest.

The event on June 8, at Strathpine’s Pine Rivers Park, will coincide with World Pride Month and celebrate the region’s growing LGBTQIA+ community.

Jade, a former X Factor Australia winner will be joined on stage by Australian drag artist, entertainer and producer, Art Simone and international drag performer, Kween Kong, who have both appeared in RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under.

City of Moreton Bay Mayor Peter Flannery says Moreton Bay is striving to be a place where everyone feels accepted and included for who they are.

“At Council, we know our communities are as diverse as our landscapes,” Mayor Flannery says.

“We want Moreton Bay to be a place where people can come together proudly, where they can freely participate and celebrate their unique selves.

“Council is proud to host Moreton Bay’s second PrideFest in June.

“This is a community celebration, so we hope to see a broad cross-section from our whole community turning out to not only support our LGBTQIA+ community but also enjoy a stellar line-up of superstar performers.”

“The event will empower current and future generations to be their true selves and feel accepted and proud of who they are, regardless of their gender identify or sexuality,” Ms Wheeler says.

“Moreton Bay PrideFest has a vision to make the region a happier, healthier, safer and more culturally rich and diverse place for the LGBTQIA+ community. PrideFest is at the heart of this dream.

“Importantly, PrideFest will highlight the support services and networks available to the LGBTQIA+ community throughout Moreton Bay

“Our amazing headlining artists, Samantha Jade, Art Simone and Kween Kong will also be supported by some of Australia’s brightest emerging performers, including Harry K and Fluffy All Stars, who will take over three stages of entertainment.”
