Sleaze Ball Parties

Sydney's Sleaze Balls were modelled on the Sleaze Balls of New York City.
Everything from high camp drag to full S&M leather can have an element of sleaze in it. The Sleaze Ball is to be a celebration of this aspect of our gay culture. 
Sleaze Ball became the premiere "other" party for the gay community, largely famous for its dress up and costuming of participants,  before an avalanche of small club parties killed off the large scale party in 2010.
