Celebrate the arrival of the silly season at Sydney’s campest Christmas party! Our annual Big Bingay Christmas Special is the ultimate gay holiday gathering, packed with more games, more prizes, more surprises and more goodies.

TIME: 6.30pm-late
LOCATION: 220/232 Oxford Street, Paddington
TICKETS: $30 all games, all night with 100% of proceeds supporting ACON


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 Beresford 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 LGBTQ community events + it raises money for our HIV and LGBTQ 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.

Working Group Recruitment – Guys Who Like Guys Who Also Party and Play

ACON is looking for guys who like guys (trans guys included) from all backgrounds to help us to develop a new and exciting program to support guys who party and play.

Our aim is to work with community members to develop an online referral tool that will help guys who like to party and play to get connected with support if they feel they need it.

We are also eager to ask community members what support they feel is needed.

This could be anything including ways to look after yourself and your buddies, peer support, good mental health, as well as HIV and sexual health information for guys who like to party and play.

If this sounds like something you would be keen to take part in, please fill out our quick reservation form, all information you provide will remain confidential.
