Community Recognition Statement delivered in the Fifty-Seventh Parliament of New South Wales by the Member for Barwon Roy Butler on 19 September 2019.

For the past five years Broken Hill has held an annual LGBTIQ+ Broken Heel Festival, It is a five day festival that celebrates the theatrical anniversary of “Pricilla Queen of the Desert” at the Palace Hotel in Broken Hill with events taking place in Silverton as well as a revival day on the final day of the Festival.
The festival is hosted by well-known drag queens both from local and away and the owners of the Palace Hotel, the festival has a large following by the local community of Broken Hill and surrounds.
The festival has gained national attention by so many that a special train “the Silver City Stiletto” travels from Sydney to Broken Hill carrying many passengers eager to attend and participate in the festival.
Entertainment is offered for all ages with a parade being held in the main street as part of the festival with many people dressing up and marching or riding on floats, The event is a fun and educational way for the regional town of Broken Hill to celebrate LGBTIQ awareness and support.
