GOWEST is set to return in 2017. The festival, now in its eighth year, is one of the year’s most colourful events, celebrating the diversity and culture of Melbourne’s GLBTIQ community.
GOWEST collectively brings together local organisations and artists supporting and representing the GLBTIQ (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer) communities in the western region of Melbourne. Whether you live or work in the west, or have been looking for an excuse to visit and explore, everyone is invited to celebrate the rich diversity of our community.
Hobsons Bay is proud to partner with the Midsumma Festival for the latest GOWEST and offers an exciting program of events for all ages and backgrounds in partnership with all the western region Councils.
The GOWEST events are not only a great way to celebrate our GLBTIQ communities, they are also great reasons to explore or visit Hobsons Bay and Melbourne’s west.
Events will include exhibitions, cabaret, performing arts, live music, ghost tours, author talks, storytelling, comedy, sports activities, film screenings, discussions and more.
