2022 Pride Month

Lifesavers with Pride want to wish everyone a Happy Pride Month.ย  Selected in June to commemorate the Stonewall Riots from 1969, events are held to celebrate Pride around the world to recognise the impact that LGBTIQ people have had on our community.ย  Lifesavers with Pride have chosen Pride month to release our Annual Video of the season with footage of our photoshoot, rehearsals, beach time and parade, plus a few congratulatory speeches from state and national dignitaries.ย  Find the video on our youtube page here, along with our previous videos from prior years.ย  Happy Pride Month.


2022 Awards of Excellence

It was awesome to be part of the Surf Life Saving Sydney Awards of Excellence evening last night with a nomination for best community program. Amazing to be nominated alongside the Silver Salties, Women's Mentoring Program, and the Disability Inclusion Programs. Excellent to be amongst our lifesaving community and spread the word about LGBTIQ inclusion.

2022 AGM and Video Night

Excellent night last night where we held our AGM, hosted our annual video night, and celebrated the launch of Pride Month in June. Great to catch up with everyone again, grab a bite, chill and enjoy the great video. And some excellent ideas on World Pride headed our way next summer. We'll be releasing the video online for Pride Month in a few days.

Today is the anniversary of when the World Health Organisation declared that homosexuality was no longer considered a mental health condition.
We now celebrate the day as the international day against homophobia, biphobia and transphobia, otherwise known as IDAHOBIT Day.
Everyone is welcome at Surf Life Saving, regardless of where you feel comfortable on the rainbow spectrum
