Scenic World celebrates WorldPride
From 10 February to 5 March 2023, Scenic World hosted one of the 45 flags of as part of Sydney WorldPride’s Rainbow City project.
In a world-first spectacle, visitors to the Blue Mountains could see the Scenic Skyway wrapped in the Progress Flag travelling back and forth across the Jamison Valley against the background of the iconic Three Sisters and majestic Mount Solitary. Scenic World is proud to have had the opportunity to showcase the Progress Rainbow in a regional centre like the Blue Mountains and for the local LGBTQIA+ community to feel part of the celebrations.
On 18 and 19 February we hosted a weekend of celebration as part of WorldPride Amplified. Guests could take a ride on the world's steepest train with a drag king, have their face painted in the rainbow and enjoy a burlesque show, and strut the runway of the Progress Skyway with a drag queen. Performers included: Betty Confetti, CC Lamour’, Verushka Darling, Elle Virus and Felicity Frockaccino.
