Country group looks for members

Last month, the LGBTI group Country Network met for its AGM in Sydney and is on the look out for more members. For 35 years, Country Network has offered a social network to gay men throughout all regions of Australia who do not share the same social opportunities that are available in Australia’s major cities.

Country Network president Neil Warner said the group’s work in bringing together gay men in remote and regional areas remained a vital service.

“Some gay men eventually make the move to ‘the big smoke’, but there are still many more who prefer to remain in the towns they call home,” he said.

The group also provides a social outlet for tree and sea changers moving from the city to regional Australia. “As attitudes progress, it is pleasing to see some are even making the move from the city to find a little more peace and tranquillity,” said Warner.

The establishment of many regional gay social groups has made this move easier and has been a tremendous benefit due to the social opportunities offered which are integral for healthy communities.

The group also recently made a $500 donation to the Inspire Foundation, which helps young people coming to terms with their sexuality.
