With Australia facing a bushfire crisis like no other, Erskineville’s LGBTQI-friendly venue The Imperial is jumping into action with a fire aid fundraiser.
All entry-fee proceeds (and a portion of drink sales) will be donated to The Trustee for New South Wales Rural Fire Service and Brigades. And notably, the pub will match all funds raised on the night.
Resident queens Etcetera Etcetera, Farren Heit, Peach Fuzz and Ruby Slipper will lead a line-up of 30-plus entertainers. There’ll be back-to-back DJ sets in the basement from Cunningpants, Estée Louder, Shanie D, Tammy Thomas and Tilda Swagton.
First Nations and bushfire-affected people will receive entry.
