World Pride starts on 17th February and runs till 5th March this year, and what a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community with your family! Heart

With so much happening, it can be difficult to know where to start! Here's some suggestions on how to get involved and connect with community, learn as a family, and support your LGBTQIA+ teens :


- Head to the Mardi Gras Fair Day where there'll be a First Nations Circle, entertainment, family picnic areas, and the Doggywood parade!


- If crowds aren't your thing, maybe enjoying a movie with the fam at the Mardi Gras Film Festival is more up your street.


- Queer Sporting Alliance have organised a basketball game followed by a roller disco, which sounds like a very fun way to get the family moving!


- There's also a whole lot of free events to check out too!


- You might like to take some time to learn more about LGBTQIA+ issues as a family, or see this as an opportunity to chat to your teen about their sexuality and gender identity. We have lots of resources to support you with this, you can check them out here and here.


- We also encourage you to reach out on our forums, and connect with the other parents and carers in the community for support Smiley Happy


Let us know what you and your family have planned for World Pride below too!
