So the silly season is just about over — we’re heading back to work, home from holidays and into the swing of everyday life. Of course, that means one thing: Mardi Gras is around the corner!
A festival of wonderful GLBTIQ events: theatre, music, parties, Fair Day and, of course, the Parade. The Parade is a chance to celebrate our identities, have our message heard, protest and party.
It can also be a confronting time of year. You might feel extra pressure around coming out, relationship issues, partying, or other things. As always GLCS is available for advice, some support, or just a friendly ear. Talking helps!
GLCS will be marching in the parade, especially celebrating 40 years of CAMP (Campaign Against Moral Persecution). GLCS will have a stall at Fair Day with information on our service. Come by and say hello!
Also in honour of 40 years of CAMP, GLCS will be hosting an exhibition of material from the history of CAMP and GLCS. The first group to be run by openly homosexual people, one of the initiatives created by CAMP was Phone-a-Friend, a service which went on to become the Gay and Lesbian Counselling Service.
The exhibition will be an amazing chance to see some rare parts of GLBTIQ activism history.
The exhibition will be held in the Aurora Room, 43 Bedford St, Newtown, March 9-11. Full details will be advertised shortly.
