About the Supper Club
Supper Club is set to be a regular event for the SGLBA Education Fund, bringing together a group of people for an intimate dinner, entertainment, networking and socialising.
A small amount from each ticket sold will go to support the Education Fund in its objective of providing grants to LGBTIQ+ Individuals, aged over 30, to undertake a course of study which meaningfully, substantially and demonstrably benefits their life or, through them, the lives of other people within the Australian Community.

Your entertainment during the evening
Ben Palumbo is Ben Noir
Ben’s foray into all things French began as a flamboyant flash of colour as he backflipped his way across the screen in the opening scenes of the hit film by Baz Lhurmann “Moulin Rouge” . Following this, two years living in French speaking Switzerland resulted in lingual fluency.
He performed in the Fete de la Musique in Lausanne, and he was invited to perform in Jazz clubs in and around Paris in 2011. His vocal performance at the Paris Burlesque Festival left the audience begging for more as well as the Montreal Burlesque Festival in 2016.
His penchant for all things French culminated in creating his own semi-autobiographical show “Ben Noir; A French Cabaret” about a young Aussie boy who travels to Paris to fulfil his dream and discovers much mayhem in the process.
‘Ben dazzled our embassy guests with his fabulously flamboyant show, capturing the best of Australia’s humour, colour and talent. Ben was inspired by France and the French love him back.’ Brendan Berne Australia’s Ambassador to France
