Lifesavers with Pride have been meeting with the various Surf Life Saving state offices, as well as with SLSA and are about to head around the country this year. This means representing the LGBTIQ community nationwide within lifesaving, and also promoting lifesaving to our rainbow community nationally. We will be attending the various LGBTIQ festivals and fair day's around the country, such as:
*Brisbane Pride's Fair Day, coming up this Saturday
*WA Pride's Perth Festival, in early November
*Adelaide Feast's Picnic, in late November
*Melbourne's Midsumma Carnivale, in late January and
*Sydney's Mardi Gras Fair Day in mid February.
Unfortunately Darwin's is on the same weekend as Brisbane's and Hobart's is on the same weekend as Melbourne's so for our first season we'll stick with these five.
So starting this Saturday we'll be at Brisbane's New Farm Park from 10am representing Surf Life Saving to our LGBTIQ community, and showing that we are a welcoming, progressive and inclusive community. So tell your Queensland friends to drop by and say hi, and to all our SE Queensland members, come and help on the stall, and share your experiences within surf life saving to the local community. It'll be great to catch up with old friends again. Just reply to this email and let us know you're on your way down.
Looking forward to seeing everyone throughout the year.
