20th Birthday for Lemons with a Twist

Happy 20th Birthday


Lemons with a Twist®

with Heartbreaker Sydney

Friday 1st October 1999 was the first-ever Lemons with a Twist, held at the Nova Cocktail Bar on the first floor above what is now Café Cabano at Taylor Square.

Twenty years later, still on a Friday night and about 100 metres from the first event, 200+ guests celebrated the longest-running Lesbian event in the southern hemisphere – Lemons with a Twist.

Driven by SGLBA board members Vicky Brackenreg and Simon Davies, we wonder if all these years later they saw that Lemons would survive to become a staple of Sydney regular LGBTI calendar.
