Held in the electorate that polled the highest ‘yes’ vote in Queensland, Love is King will be painting the town pink in honour of equality. The activation kicks off with a bang on Saturday September 8 with Qweens on King, where eight fabulous couples from the LGBTQI+ community will tie the knot in front of thousands of esteemed guests (like you, of course). A string of sweet entertainment will follow, including a performance by real-life angel Katie Noonan. Once the ceremony wraps up, it’s party time – and you’d best believe it’s a doozy. The reception will take place in the form of Heaps Gay Trash Palace at The Tivoli – think drag queens, queer performers and loads of debauchery.
The celebrations don’t stop here – Love is King is bringing some seriously delicious food deals to the precinct. Blush-hued treats like free pink tzatziki from The Lamb Shop and cotton candy milkshakes from Super Combo will have you feeling all giggly, as well as heart-shaped treats from Il Verde and Sushi & Nori. The George Bar & Bistro is also getting in on the action with rainbow muffins, while Bavarian Beerhaus is hosting a free lolly bar for one night only on Saturday September 8. Another cute non-edible retail offer includes 15-percent off at Salon Blend’s Lip Lab – we’d recommend creating a nice pink or red, obviously.
Love is King will be running from September 8–29 – to keep up to date with what’s happening and to see the full range of offers, be sure to follow the official Facebook event.
