The bentART Committee and Three Sisters Social Group have announced events slated to take place during The June Queen’s Birthday Weekend in the Blue Mountains.

These events, which include the bentART exhibition in Katoomba and the Blackheath Disco and the Queens Ball offer an array of opportunity for LGBTQI+ people and their allies to come together to celebrate the arts and to socialise.

“COVID has prevented us from holding these fantastic events in-person for the previous two-years, so we are excited to be able to hold the 2022 eventsin-person,” Sue Lightfoot, President, bentART said. “The weekend will kick off with an in -person and online bentART exhibition and will continue to the Saturday evening disco and Sunday evening Queens Ball,” Lightfoot added.

bentART was established in the Blue Mountains in 2005 to celebrate works in the visual arts of LGBTQI + artists. This four - day exhibition will take place on 10 - 13 June at  Rex - Livingston Art+Objects, 182 - 4 Katoomba St, Katoomba with an opening night reception taking place on 10 June 2022. An online exhibition will also be featured.

The Disco  will be held on 11 June at the Blackheath Community Centre  and the Queen’s Ball will be held on 12 June at Fairmont Resort & Spa. The Ball will celebrate the  platinum anniversary of the Queen’s reign and the ruby anniversary of the Ball itself.

“The action - packed weekend has something for everyone,” added Lightfoot. Diversity is the core strength of both of our organisations and we indeed are offering diverse events rich in history in the Blue Mountains. We welcome everyone.”
