Orlando

This afternoon I attended a candlelight vigil at University of Newcastle for the victims of Orlando. After the event I was looking at my facebook feed and saw a disturbing article about harassment of LGBT people increasing this week in Sydney. http://www.starobserver.com.au/news/national-news/new-so...

Pokolbin Pride Festival

We have our first Pokolbin pride festival October 20-24 2016. There is very little information available about the event except the dates it is planned for. The event is also calling for an expression of interest in people/organisations who want to be involved.
