Evoking queer history at the most contemporary of art-parties
Presented by Midsumma Festival in association with State Library Victoria

Travel to the past, celebrate the future and make history on the closing weekend of Midsumma Festival.

Full of performance and provocation, DJs, art and other displays, Midsumma Horizon 2018 will be presented at the iconic State Library Victoria.

MC Miss Ellaneous and Marzi Panne with Paul Capsis, Zelia Rose, Maude Davey, The Huxleys, June Jones (Two Steps on Water), Mama Alto, Po Po Mo Co, Queen Kong and the Homosapiens plus DJ Jen Moore, DJ Tanzer and DJ Miicha.
Pop up: Bachelorette Beauty Service

Come dressed if you like as your most beloved queer history-maker (or queer a figure from history). With prizes on offer for the best dressed amongst you, it's not a requirement of entry but it is a damned good way to make an entrance.

And you'll have a chance to make history, with portraits of revellers taken throughout the night zipped-up, time-locked and archived for posterity in the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives.

With paying bars to whet your whistle, converse and cavort with our communities' culture-makers amongst the annals of knowledge at this splendid Melbourne venue.

It's a queer timezone unto itself.

Bar available. Free entry - door prizes for best dressed.
