Cairns Tropical PrideORGANISERS of the Cairns Tropical Pride Festival say there is growing acceptance of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in the Far North as this year’s event draws to a close.

A “drag” race was also staged for the first time and hotly contested by men and women, who dashed across the concrete catwalk to don wigs, dresses, high heels and handbags.
