Legacies of Suicide Workshop Series

So many of us carry the legacies of suicide whether from the death of a friend, family member, colleague, lover or through a more distant connection, without a shared space to make sense of them. Our upcoming series of workshops, Outrageous Loss, Outrageous Courage, aims to create that shared space.

The workshops will be facilitated by two members of the Lismore LGBTIQ community – Anand Anderson and Beth Cronin. StandBy – Support After Suicide will be available for support after each session.

  1. Online: Three evening workshops Tuesdays 11, 18, & 25 August, 7 – 8.30pm.
  2. Face to Face:Saturday 10 & 17 October, 10am – 12.30pm.

Bingay | ACON Fundraiser



Following the cancellation of our April and May events, we regret to announced that our June Bingay (11 June) has also been cancelled.

We are closely monitoring the situation and will provide an update of our July Bingay in due course.

We appreciate your understanding.

We want to say thank you to everyone for your continued support for Bingay.

We are so grateful for your love and support, and we look forward to entertaining you all again very soon.



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.
