Salzburg Queer Update
21.07.2022 The coming Saturday (23.07.) is very diverse from a queer perspective. The Art Lounge in the Skulturengarten of the Mario Mauroner Gallery starts at 12 noon. Curator Stephan Stoyanov will open his cycle “My one and Only”, artistic statements on synonyms of the term love. Every Saturday during the festival, a different artist will present his/her work on the theme.
The Queer Short Film Festival begins at 4 pm in the Kulturhaus MARK. Besides short films in two slots, there will be a supporting programme with a workshop and drag party afterwards. The drag party will be a new opportunity to experience the Magic Garage crew live.
And at 8.30 pm the NEON Club will start at the Mexxx. According to his Facebook page, David from Mexxx will again “go soooo massively overboard with the deco” at the Blacklight Party. Black light, neon make-up, good mood until the early morning.
23.06.2022 The programme for Salzburg Pride 2022 is set. The Pride Weekend will become a Pride Week: 7 days, 29 events on queer topics in the scene (HOSI Bar, Mexxx Gaybar, Dark Eagle), culture (Salzburg Museum, Salzburg State Theatre) and gastronomy (Bricks, Restaurant Furo). Workshops, lectures, parties, parades and much more will draw attention to queer issues in Salzburg for a whole week. And once again bring countless visitors to Salzburg. You can read more about all the events at This will be the Salzburg Pride 2022.
09.06.2022 “The freedom of celebrating and dancing together with friends is brought back to the Salzburg Lake District by the Electric Love Festival at the Salzburgring. Electric Love means attitude to life, music and adventure.” You can get a little closer to this from tomorrow (10.06.) at Mexxx. Every Heineken beer sold includes a coupon for the raffle of two VIP tickets for this electronic music blockbuster from 7 to 9 July.
02.06.2022 “The programme is set” says Klaus Horvat-Unterdorfer from the organising team of CSD Salzburg 2022. From 29.08. to 4.09. Salzburg will experience a Pride Week for the first time. Klaus announces that there will be at least 3 events on each day of Pride Week. We are looking forward to it. The preliminary programme will be available here next week.
20.05.2022 Until 24 June, all buses and trains in the province of Salzburg are free of charge on Fridays. In view of rising energy prices, the campaign is intended to encourage people to try out public transport. The public infrastructure in the city and province of Salzburg is extremely good, there’s no need for a car in Salzburg. Maybe take the trolleybus line 2 to the fetish evening at the HOSI Salzburg this evening? Get off at Stelzhamer Straße. Or to the Magic Garage in the Narrencastl? S-Bahn station Aiglhof. We’ll all end up using more public transport anyway. A very forward-looking initiative.
16.05.2022 The new Salzburg Gay Guide is here! Until spring 2023, this guide is once again full of queer and cultural events in the beautiful city on the Salzach – on 68 pages, in German and English. Starting this week, the guide is available in the Bruno Stores in Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne and Munich. Subscribers to mate, Spartacus Traveller and Display (Switzerland) will receive the guide with the next issue of the magazine. In Salzburg, the guide is available in the queer venues. And Tourismus Salzburg will send the guide by post on request. The e-paper can be found here at gaysalzburg.at
14.05.2022 Here is the programme for tonight’s Long Night of Diversity. From 6 p.m. at the HOSI Salzburg the opening, from 7 p.m. at participating trendy shops Mexxx Gaybar, Dark Eagle and Fungo Bar. The Andräviertel is expecting guests from near and far in the best early summer weather.
