The premier LGBTQIA annual events in Australia's largest cities typically last two to three weeks, with Gay Mardi Gras in Sydney and Adelaide Feast Festival being the most famous of these. Melbourne's beloved Midsumma Festival, which takes place from January 20 through February 10, 2021, draws tens of thousands of participants from within metro Melbourne's sizable LGBTQIA community, from all over Australia, and, increasingly, from throughout the world. The city's Gay Business Association started the festival in 1988 to celebrate the Melbourne queer community's arts and culture.
