MASQUEERADE is a same sex-attracted, gender diverse, intersex prom for young people in far north Queensland (FNQ). This is the first event of its kind in FNQ and the organisers hope that it will be the first of many similar events and will attract diverse young people from around the region.

The preparations are ramping up and it’s going to be amazing! The event is being organised by YETI with a core group of young LGBTIQ+ people, members of the local LGBTIQ+ community and other local social services in Cairns.

This event aims to provide a safe, friendly and inclusive space for young people who identify as same sex-attracted, gender diverse or intersex from around the region to connect and share in a special event that celebrates diversity and is an alternative to the more traditional, high school formal.

Brought to you with the assistance of the Cairns Regional Council. Supported by the Qld AIDS Council, Cairns Sexual Health Clinic, Tropical Mardi Gras, Cairns Sexual Assault Service, Cairns LGBT Alliance, Headspace Cairns and Qld Positive People.
