Forrester’s WorldPride Events

WorldPride Inspired Cocktail

Forrester’s very own Payge let her inner Drag Queen shine at the Applejack X Absolut ‘Dragtails’ Cocktail Competition. Throughout WorldPride, Payge’s ultimate alcoholic green machine cocktail ‘Go Go Juice’ was available to try, with $1 from every cocktail sold going directly to the Bobby Goldsmith Foundation, Australia’s longest HIV charity.

Pride Beats

Forrester’s was the home of Pride Beats for Sydney WorldPride. With a line up of fabulously talented performers supporting LGBTQIA+ artists and allies, we were in full party mode from Thursday to Sunday.

Drag Queen Hosting

Dominique Topp and Dakota Fann’ee slipped on their highest heels, doused themselves in glitter and strutted their way down Forveaux street to enhance your Saturday experience at Forrester’s during Sydney WorldPride. Those that were at Forrester’s were charmed by their presence and dazzled by their cocktail making skills. 


Glitter Face Painter

Our Viewing Parties saw the King and Queens of Surry Hills turn up ready to unleash their inner diva. And what a better way to do so, then with our free Pride face painters, who added a touch of glitter and sparkle to those who attended.
