Voting is now open for the 2014 Queen’s Birthday Ball Awards!
Nominations for the 2014 Queen’s Birthday Ball Awards were sought from the community and were then considered by the Queen’s Birthday Ball Awards Nominating Committee. The process is set out in the Queen’s Birthday Ball Awards Policy and Procedure that was adopted by the Board of the Brisbane Pride Festival on 24 March 2014. This year the Queen’s Birthday Ball Awards Nominating Committee included Brisbane Pride President Peter Black, Vice President Shaz Gerchow, Committee Member Drew Thomas and community members Jan Thwaites and Patrick Kay. Brisbane Pride would like to thank them for assisting us in choosing finalists for the Queen’s Birthday Ball Awards.
The Queen’s Birthday Ball Awards Nominating Committee was very impressed by the number and quality of nominations received this year. Over 1000 nominations were received across the categories, highlighting the outstanding contributions made by so many people and organisations across the LGBTIQ community. You can download the finalists in each category here.
This year’s Queen’s Ball will be held at Brisbane City Hall on 8 June 2014. Information about tickets and sales are available here.

Queen’s Balls tickets are now on general sale, after the completion of a succesful member’s presale. The 53rd Annual Queens Ball, to be held on Sunday 8 June 2104, promises to be the most elegant yet as we celebrate in the majestically refurbished Main Auditorium at Brisbane City Hall. The marbled and domed auditorium will see the Roaring Twenties return with our Great Gatsby themed event — think Art Deco, champers and jazz. This year’s event starts at 7 pm and features a sit down two-course meal, four-hour beverage package and, of course, the presentation of awards for outstanding achievements in the LGBTIQ community.
VIP ticket holders are invited to an exclusive hour-long function in the foyer of Brisbane City Hall from 6 pm. Here, you’ll be greeted with a complimentary Queen’s Cocktail, canapés, pre-dinner drinks and entertainment by a local jazz trio. Other entertainment at this year’s Ball includes Christopher Wayne, one half of the hilarious magical duo, The Naked Magicians.
Prices start from $75 per ticket for members and tables of ten are available. For those who wish to take advantage of member’s discounts for other premier Brisbane Pride events throughout the year, ticket bundles are available. If you wish to reserve a table, contact firstname.lastname@example.org with a minimum booking of 2 seats.
