About Bingay

bingay-1

Bingay is gay bingo which means there’s classic disco tunes, weird rules and penalties, outrageous antics, hilarious repartee, deliciously lewd bingo calls, and prizes that range from the silly and camp to great theatre tickets and restaurant vouchers.

Bingay hostess Charisma Belle oversees the madcap proceedings and Bingay’s long time barrel babe Naomi Palmer spins the balls and sings up a storm.

Bingay takes over the upstairs bar of The Shift in Darlinghurst on the second Thursday of every month, with each monthly event having a fabulously flamboyant theme.

Bingay’s balls first dropped in 1999, making it one of Sydney’s longest running LGBTI community events + it raises money for our HIV and LGBTI health services.

So whether you’re a regular or a novice, or a local or visitor to Sydney, if you’re up for a wonderfully camp mid-week entertainment experience, then you can’t go wrong with Bingay. Retro disco bingo in Darlo – what’s not to love!

World AIDS Day & Red Ribbon Appeal

redribbon-slider

World AIDS Day (Dec 1) provides us with a valuable opportunity to educate people about how we can end HIV transmission in NSW by 2020 as well as raise money for programs and services that are vital to ending HIV.

Recent advances in HIV treatments and testing technologies mean we can now end the HIV epidemic here in Australia by getting people to test more, treat early and stay safe. The Ending HIV Red Ribbon Appeal raises money for community-based initiatives that aim to eliminate the transmission of HIV in NSW by 2020.

The Ending HIV Red Ribbon Street Appeal takes place across NSW on Thursday 1 December (World AIDS Day) and Friday 2 December.

Volunteer – You Can Help Make HIV History

Want to help make a difference that will last forever? By volunteering for the Ending HIV Red Ribbon Appeal, you can help eliminate HIV transmission in NSW.
We’re currently recruiting volunteers to help out with the annual Red Ribbon Street Appeal on World AIDS Day (Thursday 1 December) as well as Friday 2 December.

Volunteers are needed in Sydney (multiple locations) and regional & rural NSW (including Hunter, Northern Rivers, Mid North Coast, Southern, Central West and Far West NSW) to sell ribbons and collect donations at selected locations.

Sell Red Ribbons
You can volunteer to sell ribbons on the street, you can bulk order ribbons and sell them to family and friends, or you can order a countertop box and sell ribbons to your customers or colleagues.

Buy Red Ribbons or Make a Donation
You can buy red ribbons online, on the street, or in participating shops and businesses. Or you can make a cash donation online.
