Coastal Twist Festival starts Tuesday, September 27

The Coastal Twist Festival, celebrating people of diverse sexualities and genders, will be held from Tuesday, September 27, to Monday, October 3, with many free activities on the Peninsula.

The arts and culture festival will have 14 events across seven days, with 75 per cent of the festival free across Umina Beach, Woy Woy, Ettalong Beach and Gosford, according to its creative director Ms Glitta Supernova.

"This year's festival theme is Be the Change," she said.

"It is a call to action for all people, regardless of age, gender, sexuality, ability or skin colour, to come together and celebrate for a happier, healthier, and more welcoming Central Coast, highlighting we can all partake, be visible and have the power to make change and create the reality we wish to live in.

"We want everyone to feel welcome and explore, and everyone up for a good time, good food, music, reinforcing a better way for the future.

"This festival is inclusive.

"Allies are a big part of the journey in attaining quick change on the Coast.

"Much like when Australia voted in favour of legalising same-sex marriage, the Coast has moved away from the restrictive gatekeeper models and community finally able to speak for itself in measurable ways."
