About Bingay


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!

We would greatly appreciate you completing a short survey (as fully and honestly as possible). It asks a few basic questions about you and about your interest in, and availability to attend a weekend. It asks you to nominate topics which you’d like to know more about and give additional feedback on the design of the weekend.

Your feedback will also help us to further develop programs for older people living with HIV.
