2008 was a big one for the Sydney club scene and even bigger for this Sydney party you may recognise! It was the year GiRLTHING was born and changed Sydney’s LGBTQIA+ scene for the better.

Launching as Sydney’s first “indie queer girl social” on Oxford Street every Thursday, before making the move to the infamous QBAR every month, GiRLTHING has since frequented every major club in Sydney, not to mention Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. It’s safe to say she’s turned into a bit of an institution over the last decade.

Since the early days, GiRLTHING has focused on providing a platform for a small demographic in an already niche scene. From creating safe spaces for queer art galleries to underground warehouse parties, lesbian skate competitions, sweaty club nights, and more!
