The 2010 Mardi Gras season is almost upon us and the NSW Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby (GLRL) is busy planning for what should be a great season.
The Mardi Gras Film Festival will be one of the highlights of the season, and this year Queer Screen will feature a centrepiece film and donate $5 from every ticket sold to the GLRL. The Fish Child (El Nino Pez) is a Latin American thriller, where mysticism and epic love meet. It screens on February 23 at 7.30pm at the Palace Academy Twin, Oxford St.
Come along and watch a great film that helps to fund the GLRL and its campaigns. For more information, or to buy tickets, visit www.mardigrasfilmfestival.com.au. Tickets may be available at the venue on the night if not sold out prior. We would also like to take this opportunity to publicly thank Queer Screen for its support of the GLRL.
The GLRL is still looking for volunteers to join us this Mardi Gras season. We need people to help at Launch Night, Fair Day, Harbour Party, ToyBox, and to participate in our parade float. Those volunteering for the party events receive a free ticket to the event. Given the popularity of the party events, priority will be given to those people who also volunteer for other events during the season.
If you’re interested in joining the fun, or to find out more, please email us your details at mardigras@glrl.org.au, or call us on 9571 5501. Please let us know which events you would like to help out with, your T-shirt size, mobile number and email address. More information can also be found on our website, www.glrl.org.au.
Finally, we would like to remind everybody to take action on adoption reform by visiting our website, www.glrl.org.au and submitting a letter to the Premier, Deputy Premier, and Minister for Community Services urging them to act immediately on promises to protect the best interests of children. We also suggest you contact your local MP and let them know that inaction on adoption reform is simply unacceptable.
