On Wednesday the 15th November the LGBTIQ community held its breath until it was finally revealed that Australians had voted an overwhelming ‘YES’ for Marriage Equality. The eagerly awaited announcement came early in the day and after tears of relief and excitement, hugs with supporters and loved ones, the celebrations began across the country and, on the Gold Coast, it was no different.
Camp It is a men's only camping weekend for gay, bi, and trans men who love men and this was our very first time. Making things even more precarious, this was also the first time we had put up our tent in the last four years and there were storms approaching from every direction. It was sure to be an entertaining weekend, one way or another.
Promoting Australia as a welcoming destination for gay and lesbian travellers is the guiding principle for GALTA (Gay And Lesbian Tourism Australia - http://galta.com.au/meet-the-team) and Noosa certainly demonstrated its credentials in wonderful style as a prodigious host for the 2015 gathering of GALTA members for their Annual General Meeting. Noosa, the jewel in the crown of Queensland's famous Sunshine Coast, was the chosen location for the this year's event and we (GayMenOnHoliday.com) didn't waste the opportunity to meet the people behind the famous rainbow logo.
We arrived home very jet lagged from our long trip through Europe but we soon found a new set of wings when we discovered the Glitter Festival on the Gold Coast was already up, up and away. Unfortunately, our arrival was a little late to catch a few stunning events like Tacos and Tiaras at QT, The Lunch that Drags on Tedder Avenue, Larry Paradiseo and the Fabulous Dame Farrar, Michael Griffiths on piano and Australia's 'Acid Tongue Prince', Mr Joel Creasy. However, there were still plenty of fabulous festive functions left on the program to titilate our tastebuds and aid re-entry into the Gold Coast glitterati. A quick breeze through the program, a change of outfit and off we went!
