WHO IS THE EVENT FOR?

 

This is an all-inclusive event!

We would encourage women who are attracted to other women, no matter what label you use to identify yourself to come along! The term women refers to people who identify as female, whether or not they were born female, and is inclusive of celebrating transgender women in our community.

Their family, partners, friends and children are also encouraged to come along. Lesbian-friendly transgender people, men and straight people are more than welcome to celebrate this day with us. In fact we would love to see you come along! 

Children and young people are welcome to attend, however as there is alcohol available, they must be supervised at all times by a parent, guardian or responsible adult.
