A handbag throwing competition, food and drinks will headline the first ever pride event in Break O'Day said the event organiser.
Nev Shaw and his husband Bryon Beggs moved to St Mary's eight years ago and had always planned on starting up a pride event.
For Mr Shaw it was important to be a positive role model for young people.
"We've always been pretty strong on providing a good role model for other people and particularly young people," he said.
He grew up in Tasmania and said times have changed a lot since he was a kid.
"I grew up on the North West coast of Tasmania and when I was a young man in the 70's there was no positive role models," he said.
"Being gay was a very negative thing."
"So since I've been out I've always had no problem letting people now that I'm gay."

He said once about four years ago he was subject to a homophobic attack but the community had generally been very accepting of the pair.
"We find the community here very accepting, particularly here in St Mary's, we've got quite a big gay community here for a tiny town."
To Mr Shaw's knowledge this is the first pride event in Break O'Day and from community response he is expecting a good turnout.
"We didn't know what to do and we thought Not the Only Gay in Break O'Day would be a good way to get people together and the way the RSVP is going we are going to have quite a few people."
He said there isn't many pride events in the regions.
"During Pride very little happens in the regions."
"When we lived in the south of the state prior to coming here, we always had a pride event at our place in Baghdad."
"We've always intended to start one up here but life has been pretty busy but now we are a bit more settled we thought we'd get back into it."
He said they plan on making the event an annual occurrence.
"This will be an annual event, we are providing light refreshments and an afternoon tea and we are going to have a handbag throwing competition."
He said the goal of the event was to bring people together and meet new people.
"There are quite a few new people to the area and i'm sure there is one or two people who are socially isolated so we are trying to network amongst our friends to reach as many people as possible."
The 'Not the Only Gay in Break O'Day' event takes place on Saturday and is sponsored by Tas Pride which has allowed the pair to provide some catering.
