Gaycrash Canberra is part of the worldwide Guerrilla Gaybar Movement.
Once a month, we take over the coolest/dodgiest Canberra straight bar we can find, for one night only (the night of your life). Think flashmob meets the French Revolution meets Gaga/Ke$ha. And you’re invited, as long as you’re queer/love queers, and game for a great night.
Trick is, we don’t announce our shindig’s digs until the day of the party – we don’t wanna give them any notice. So, the only way to know where to go for the party is to like us on Facebook, follow us on twitter, and connect with your friends on Foursquare (you’ll find out why on the night)
WE THE GAYS (and drag queens, flamboyant queens, bull dykes, lipstick lesbians, and big nelly homos), decree, that one night a month, we will take over the coolest/dodgiest bar we can find in greater Canberra for one night only, without any warning. Think of it as gay affirmative action. For this night, our presence will be a new and fun experience for you, the bar’s patrons, and allow you to check out a venue you might not otherwise check out. Only with the gay scene you’ve always wanted. Then, the next night, it’s back to normal for another month.
On Friday 20 January 2012 (ie next Friday) we’ll be gaycrashing our first straight venue, and hope lots of gays, lesbians, bisexual, transgender, intersex and generally queer Canberrans/their supporters will come along for the ride.
Exact location will be posted on the afternoon of the event, but it is a central location in the Civic area. The only way to be informed of the venue is by friending Gaycrash Canberra on Facebook, or our Twitter feed @GaycrashCBR
We want straight venues to realise how great queer customers are, so be friendly, tip well, and make em wish that every night would be queer night at their bar. Likewise, be friendly to the usual patrons. We want to build a good reputation, and some of these folks may never have encountered real life queers before. Remember, prejudice doesn’t survive experience, and you never know, you might get lucky!
Remember to add four square and facebook and twitter to your mobile device, so we can keep in contact with you on the go.
