OH HEY ADELAIDE - We're coming back to you with another Same Sex Gender Diverse Formal.
It's a night to wear what you want, come with who you want, and just be yourself!
We'll be enjoying good music, performances from queer artists, delicious food and a great dance party to finish, all at the beautiful Freemason Hall. It's a night of incredible entertainment, and a place to be yourself.
This event is for young people aged 21 and under and is strictly drug, alcohol and smoke free.
WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT
Imagine being told by your school that the clothes you feel comfortable wearing to a formal aren’t considered ‘normal’ or don’t conform to a dress code. Imagine not being allowed to take a partner of the same sex, or being too afraid to attend altogether.
It’s a sucky reality for gender diverse and same sex attracted students from all over Australia, who are bullied or made to feel unsupported because of their identity. That’s what the Same Sex Gender Diverse Formal is all about; you, me and heaps of other students having the night of our lives.
But it’s also a chance for us to say to schools “Hey, you need to do more to support us; you need to challenge transphobia and homophobia.” Until all schools step up and make their events safe for everyone, we’ll run the Same Sex Gender Diverse Formal.
5-6PM: Pre-dinner mocktails and mingle
6-8PM: Sit down dinner and incredible performances
8-10PM: Dance party
You can come with your partner, your friends or even come by yourself! Still not sure what to expect?Check out the video from last year's event
This event is organised and run by the same-sex attracted and gender diverse young people at Minus18.
The Same Sex Gender Diverse Formal is run by Minus18 and SHine SA and supported by the South Australian Government.
