Connecting with LGBTIQA+ community members at Midsumma Carnival



We had a wonderful time at Midsumma Carnival in January 2024 and are grateful to all the community members who came to talk to us throughout the day.

Midsumma Carnival is part of Midsumma Festival, Australia's annual queer arts and cultural festival, bringing together a diverse mix of LGBTIQA+ artists, performers, communities and audiences.

Relationships Australia Victoria has been a proud supporter of Midsumma Festival for over 10 years and we welcomed the opportunity to once again join in this celebration of diversity.

Our information stall was staffed by 8 of our staff members, including members of our Rainbow Working Group who said that the day was a wonderful way to connect with community members and LGBTIQA+ welcoming service providers.

Relationships Australia Victoria celebrates LGBTIQA+ diversity and we are committed to providing safe and inclusive services for all. We always welcome feedback on our services, and invite you to email us your feedback on how we can continue to improve to best meet your needs.

Over the next few months, Midsumma will be hosting a range of additional events which we encourage you to check out via the links below.

  • A Brave(R) Space: This year's focused highlight, commissioned and produced by Midsumma as part of Midsumma Presents, A Brave(R) Space, is an artistic exploration of intersectional LGBTQIA+ identity(s) involving the creation of brave new contemporary works, across various art forms.

  • Queer PHOTO: Queer PHOTO is presented by Midsumma and PHOTO 2024 International Festival of Photography, in association with Trocadero Projects. Queer PHOTO combines artist commissions of large-scale outdoor artworks, gallery exhibitions and an interactive public performance program that spans two months (27 Jan – 24 March) over both Midsumma Festival and PHOTO 2024.
