Presented by Carriageworks
Bloodlines is a multi art form exhibition which honours legendary artists lost to HIV/AIDS. A loving tribute to the many influential voices silenced by the HIV/AIDS epidemic of the 1980’s and 90’s.
The Huxleys’ work evokes the colourful rebellious and creative spirit of these queer saints, artists that helped shift the worlds of queer art and culture into new realms. The work pays a heartfelt debt to artists who paved the way and informed and inspired the practices of The Huxleys, and countless other artists working today.
Bloodlines: The Huxleys is part of Marri Madung Butbut: The First Nations Gathering Space.
Todas las edades son bienvenidas.
Djarraba Disco – Marri Madung Butbut opening party: Thu Feb 23 , 7pm-10:30pm

Sydney WorldPride is proud to support the Sunflower Hidden Disabilities Program which is a globally recognised symbol for hidden or non-obvious disabilities. The Sunflower Lanyard enables people with hidden disabilities and conditions the choice to let the people around them know they may need extra support, empathy, understanding or patience. This may mean some wearers cannot stand for a long time in the queue to use the bathroom, may need the use of an accessible bathroom (even if they aren’t a wheelchair or mobility aid user), patience when their order is being taken, may need fast-tracked support, more time to move around (i.e. due to pain or mobility challenges) or can feel overwhelmed, sensory overload or stressed out in large crowds and loud environments.
If you already own a Sunflower lanyard please bring it along and it will be accepted at all SWP events. If you don’t already have one, Sunflower Lanyards will be available onsite at Carriageworks Box Office – please check the event map for Sunflower Lanyard Pickup locations on site. The lanyard is yours to keep and use during the festival and beyond! Click this link for more information on what the Sunflower Lanyard is and how it may support you.
People who hold a valid Companion Card will be issued a complimentary ticket when they support a ticketholder with disability. To reserve tickets please contact [email protected] You may be asked to present your Companion Card at the event.
