Powerhouse Late: Heaps Gay

Location marker iconUltimoTime icon2023

Heaps Gay have been coaxing Sydney out of its shell since 2013 and is celebrating turning 10 with Powerhouse Late, so dress to impress. Splashing together the finest local queer talent.

Join us as friends from the community share their diary entries and the real thoughts and feelings about the younger years for Teenage Dream.

Keeping Sydney’s drag king culture alive, SYDNY KINGS will present a high-octane hour of performance. Pulling the best from the archive, expect curated content from the Heaps Gay vault of creative oddities including exclusive interviews with queer artists and design work spanning 10 years of parties across Sydney.
