Mindful Art Access

The Art Gallery of New South Wales wants to share their collection, exhibitions and passion for art with older LGBTQ+ people, carers and allies. 

You are invited to Mindful Art Access, a stimulating and inspiring experience, held over six visits. Each visit you will explore one curated space and do a deep dive into three individual art works. We’ll spend time discussing and learning about each artwork and share our own understandings of art and what it means to us. 

Enjoy being socially connected and exploring art with your older LGBTQ+ peers. Participants are encouraged to attend all six visits, but this is not an essential requirement.

This gallery experience is wheelchair accessible, with aids available for people with low vision. The gallery aims to meet all accessibility needs.


Dates: 24 & 31 May and 7, 14, 21 & 28 June

Time: 1pm to 3pm

Location: Art Gallery of NSW, North Building, Art Gallery Road, Sydney 

Bookings are essential

Bingay | ACON Fundraiser



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.
