More info: Coming Back Out Ball

The Coming Back Out Ball returns this year, on Thursday 25 October at the Melbourne Town Hall.

Hosted by Tristan Meecham of All The Queens Men and the LGBTI Elders Dance Club, the folks behind the original ball in 2017, this year’s event will be presented as a premiere event of the Victorian Seniors Festival in association with the Val’s LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care. The ball was inspired 
by research revealing that some LGBTI elders conceal their sexual orientation or gender identity when they access aged care services – because they believe they are not safe.

The night blends showbiz bells and whistles with community celebration, dinner and dancing. The headline performers include Close Encounters, Electric Fields and Meow Meow.
