SISSY BALL is SOLD OUT! Thanks to everyone who booked! See you at Carriageworks on Saturday 24 February!

PRESENTED BY SYDNEY GAY AND LESBIAN MARDI GRAS AND RED BULL MUSIC.

For one night only, clubbers will be transported to a dancefloor born from the living history of New York’s underground Ballroom scene.

Expressions of identity become the focal point as bodies collide in the ultimate Vogue throwdown of style, precision, and attitude in a showcase set to transfix.

In true Vogue style, extravagance on the runway will be met with a Ballroom soundtrack that will weave through disco, house, bounce, pop, performance and much more.

Curated by local interdisciplinary artist and club icon Bhenji Ra, this premier event at Carriageworks is sure to be a festival highlight.

The term “Sissy”
"The term “Sissy” is used amongst Asian and Pacific queer communities as a term of endearment and sisterhood. The reason why I chose this is because it’s definitely a term widely used amongst the younger generation of queer people of colour and there’s a global understanding of reclaiming it as a positive affirmation opposed to its slur history” Bhenji Ra
