The Alexander Ball 2021 hosted by Meanjin’s pioneering ballroom house— House of Alexander, brings the highly anticipated LGBTQIA+ event of the year that is a celebration of the ballroom culture, a chronically underappreciated but fundamental part of queer subcultures. 

A symbiosis of different artistic and cultural practices, The Alexander Ball creates a safe space and provides an opportunity for queer persons of colour to fully express themselves and showcase their talents on the runway through eight different categories. 

Catwalks, poses, bizarre outfits, and voguing will emerge at The Tivoli in Fortitude Valley as the community comes together for a night of celebration, community, art, protest, and self-expression.

Open Season is supported through Tourism and Events Queensland, the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, and both the Live Music Australia Fund and the Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) – initiatives of the Australian Government. 

House of Alexander is presented in partnership with Brisbane Festival, a Queensland Government and Brisbane City Council Initiative.
