Midsumma in Autumn

About this Curation

Midsumma is Australia's premier queer arts and cultural organisation, bringing together a diverse mix of LGBTQIA+ artists, performers, communities and audiences.


Midsumma Festival usually runs over 22 days in Melbourne's summer (January/February) each year with an explosion of queer events that centre around hidden and mainstream queer culture, involving local, interstate and international artists. Due to COVID-19, in 2021 Midsumma Festival runs from 19 April to 5 May, with Midsumma Pride March on Sunday 23 May. The Midsumma Festival shares the lived experiences of those voices at the margins, the expression of queer history, and the celebration of new ideas and stories that come to life through world-class art and performance.


We're proud to represent all colours of the rainbow on Bluethumb, so to get in the festival spirit, this curation is packed full of incredible LGBTQIA+ artists and artworks that celebrate queer culture.
