The ALSO Foundation’s Gay Day picnic — which was postponed in December — will be held this Saturday, February 19 from noon at Melbourne Zoo. The event marks a return to ALSO’s roots, with well-attended annual picnics in the late 1970s and 1980s the base upon which the organisation grew.

The picnic will be held on the reptile lawns. Tickets are $27.50 and must be purchased beforehand. Special hampers are available, with funds raised going to the ALSO Care seniors program.

Head down to the zoo this weekend and celebrate. This is a rainbow family-friendly event.
