Circus acts, arts and crafts and massages — what better way to celebrate International Lesbian Day.
The Women’s Health Centre (WILMA) in Campbelltown will host their annual My Fair Lemon event on October 25, a celebration that organiser Jack Draper hopes will promote lesbian pride for women out west.
“It’s really trying to provide an event that can help lesbians meet up,” she told Sydney Star Observer.
“There’s still so much lesbophobia everywhere. I see women every day who experience such layers of discrimination or family abuse and neglect, so they can be really isolated and they don’t necessarily have contact with the things that help you find pride about being a lesbian, so we want to try and provide that opportunity.”
Lesbian-owned businesses will be given a space to spruik their wares and services, offering a great opportunity to get a massage, or pick up some hand-crafted goods.
Draper is still keen to hear from anyone interested in being a stallholder or entertainer, and would like to speak to any unemployed women who could be hired to run the kitchen on the day.
