ChillOUT in the Country – 9 to 12 March 2012

by Gaycation Magazine

Only a few weeks till ChillOut, Australia’s largest country Queer Pride event.  Yeee-har!  Since 1997 the festival has been hosted over the Victorian Labour Day long weekend in March.

Carnival Day is a day of music and fun for our extended family. Headlining the 2012 fest is a performance by Paul Capsis. Sharing the stage are alt-country faves Sal Kimber & the Rollin Wheel – and many more.

The Palais in Hepburn Springs has never seen so many sequins and mascara! UK Comedy Diva Dolly Diamond returns to perform her new show “More Than A Woman.”

We’re loving the laughs this year and turning the Convent into a Comedy Club with gay comedians from radio, stage and screen performing their hit show “The LOL Big Gay Comedy Night.”

Everyone loves a parade, and ChillOut’s annual street parade is a brash and colourful celebration of queer country pride. Join us as we take our message of diversity and inclusion to the main street of Daylesford on Sunday.

All that partying and dancing is going to take some time to get over.  Don’t worry, there’s a Brunch Recovery at The Palais… life-saving bacon & egg sarnies, lunches and Bloody Marys will be on the menu for this good ole fashioned country come-down brunch.

One of many weekend events.
Locally based, internationally renowned storyteller Anne E Stewart is hosting the official Gay Tour of Daylesford, sharing colourful stories, characters, locations and the history of our rainbow town as you stroll the streets and alleys.

ChillOut is dedicated to celebrating gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer pride within the unique setting of regional Victoria. The organisation is about building community, celebrating diversity, and sharing love for this beautiful part of Australia, while helping raise money every year for a worthy cause.
