The BGF Bake-Off
Get your spatulas and mixing bowls ready. The BGF Bake Off is here once again. This year, the BGF's longest-
running and best-loved community event takes place on Sunday 6 June at the Paddington Town Hall, corner of
Oatley Rd and Oxford St. The Bake Off judging panel, which includes Channel Ten's Ready, Steady, Cook presenter Peter
Everett and iconic Sydney drag queen Claire de Lune, will take each entry through a gruelling testing process based on
taste, presentation and degree of dif culty. The climax of this outrageous, fun- lled event is the live auction at 4pm, hosted
by new drag talent Trevor Ashley (aka Cleo Coupe) which sees entries auctioned off with a complimentary prize donated
by community supporters.
Entry is a $10 donation to BGF at the door.
The Laughter Subsides
How well do people really know each
other? What exactly do they do?
More importantly, why do they do it?
Does everything necessarily need a
purpose, or do we just look for one as
a way of occupying ourselves? These
questions and more provide the basis
for a spanking new one act play, The
Laughter Subsides, playing at the Tap
Gallery from May 25- 30, Tix $15.

Matinée arrives in Australia
European-style partying is migrating to the antipodes. Matinée Group, the folk behind some of the hottest
parties ever -- think Space@Ibiza every Saturday night. Think Circuit Festival, the biggest gay and lesbian
event in the world with 50,000 people. Think the Matinée Summer Festival, and the Matinée Winter Festival...
Well now they're coming here.
Matinée blows open the Queen's Birthday Weekend with a bang. Outlandish décor is part of a stellar production direct from
Barcelona. Expect a light and sound spectacular in Sydney's biggest purpose-built club (TBA). Mixed crowds and gogo
dancers all night long to the beats of a superstar DJ fresh from the European heat. A lush VIP ticket gets you into the private
balcony, comfy seats, a royal view across the entire party. For more info visit matineeaustralia.com
The inaugural pinkFEST will take place in the Blue Mountains from June 11--20. The 10 day
festival will celebrate the pride of the LGBT community of the mountains and is one of many Pride
Festivals taking place around the world during Pride month. The events taking place include a ball,
disco, pool party, bushwalk, lms, art exhibition, picnic and trivia night.
The Festival Hub will be at Hotel Gearin in Katoomba where people can relax with a drink and a chat
at anytime during the 10 days of the Festival.
"We saw pinkFEST as a perfect opportunity to unite the growing community of LGBT people in the
mountains," said Genie Melone, Festival Organiser.
"We hope in the future this will become a traditional event in the mountains calendar, rather than
just a once-off event." Pink friendly accommodation is available for visitors to the Blue Mountains.
