A deadly disco honouring legends, icons and queer trailblazers. Igniting flames of the past and present in a joyful evocation of dance floors, storytelling and queer love. Celebrating the opening of Marri Madung Butbut: The First Nations Gathering Space and The Huxleys ‘Bloodlines’ exhibition which honours the legacy of legendary artists lost over time to HIV/AIDS. Djarraba Disco (pronounced Djarra-ba) will be a pulsing, sparkling heartfelt love letter to our community and queer history. Featuring a line-up of some Gadigal and Naarm’s finest performance artists and superstars.

Curated by The Huxleys with Ben Graetz for Sydney WorldPride.
