A night of dress-up, dancing and disco is coming to Busselton next month with the Eazybeatz all-inclusive disco night set to bring an evening of friendship and connection to many.

The disco is a free event for anyone 18 or older and is set to touch down on May 4 at the Shelter Brewing Co.

A dedicated group of inclusivity champions living with disabilities, led by APM community development co-ordinator Sarah Bowes, is putting the disco together.

After recent community consultation it was found people living with disabilities in the Busselton area wanted more chances to connect and assert control over their lives, with even simple acts such as having a drink and a dance a challenge due to discrimination.

The Eazybeatz disco is intended to be a safe space where people can gather without fear of discrimination, to boogie and party hard or just relax with friends.

Ms Bowes said one of the key goals of the disco was to move away from more segregated events as people of all abilities should be able to go out with their friends.

She said they aimed to make inclusion a reality within the community and was excited to see everyone’s costumes from superheroes to Star Wars and everything in between.

The group organising the disco are all incredibly excited about the big night.

Scott Elliott said he was excited to see everyone having fun and being who they wanted to be.

Emma Williams could hardly contain her excitement for the evening and said she was looking forward to hanging out with her friends and mentors at the disco.

Paige Kinsey has been working tirelessly in the lead up to the disco, organising donations for the night and talking on the community radio to advertise the event.

The event is supported by the City of Busselton and the South West Autism Network, with local businesses also getting involved.

Tickets are free but numbers are limited, with the event running from 6pm until late.
