Spotlights and Sparkles: Celebrating Vonni at the South Australian Pride Hall of Fame


Get ready to pop the champagne and roll out the red carpet because we're gearing up to celebrate a monumental evening at the South Australian Pride Gala! 🌟🎉 On Saturday 15 June 2024, the vibrant spirit of Vonni Brit Watkins will be immortalised as we proudly induct her into the Hall of Fame.


Affectionately known as a stellar diva and an inspiring pioneer, Vonni began her illustrious journey on the lively cabaret stages of Adelaide. She swiftly became a household name, captivating audiences from the local scenes to the national spotlight with her roles in iconic shows like Les Girls and as the unforgettable Bernadette in 'Priscilla Queen of the Desert.' 🌈👠


Vonni’s influence stretches far beyond her theatrical talents. As a staunch advocate for LGBTQ+ rights and a mentor to young performers, she has woven threads of courage, compassion, and change into the fabric of our community. 🎭💖


As the date approaches, we invite you to join us in person for a gala night where we'll honour Vonni’s incredible contributions. This event isn’t just a ceremony; it's a celebration of a life that has lit up stages and hearts alike.


We’re set to honour not just the performer, but the person—a true icon whose legacy of vibrancy, advocacy, and inclusivity shines on.


So, mark your calendars and join us for a toast to Vonni Brit Watkins, a legend whose sparkle will forever be part of our community’s history. Let’s celebrate the journey of a woman who has been as much a beacon in our lives as she has been on the stage. 🥂✨


Tickets to the South Australian Pride Gala are on sale now.
