MELT is an invitation to celebrate Brisbane’s wonderfully diverse queer communities.

Brisbane’s LGBTIQ+ voice is loud and clear, bursting with pride, humour, humanity and rebellion. The community is bounding towards equality in many vital aspects of life and MELT is a vehicle for these leaps.

The invitation is extended to citizens of all genders, sexual orientations, ages, ethnicities, abilities and artistic interests. The celebration is one of love.
