Rainbow Families Winter Ball, June 2018
We hosted the Rainbow Families Winter Ball on Saturday 16 June at Corroboree Park in Ainslie following our inaugural Rainbow Families Dance Party last October. Our Rainbow Families events provide a fun, safe and inclusive environment for LGBTIQ families to get together, make new connections and nurture existing ones.
“It was really lovely to see the range of families attending; such a positive, supportive, welcoming atmosphere. As our daughter grows older we feel these kind of events will be important for her to see so many 'like' families and to feel the same; to see herself and her family reflected in society. We really value such events and make an effort to support the community and recurrence of such events by attending whenever possible.” – Kate at the Rainbow Families Winter Ball 2018
Despite the chilly temperature and rain, the event was a sell out and everyone danced up a storm of their own! There was face painting and drawing on snowflakes and a bake sale which was supported by many staff and volunteers. Big thanks to our volunteers on the day Alyssa Bagley and Helena Willson, our bakers including the Chifley Grocer baking department, and Adele at Debonair Balloons who loves to support our communities with colourful balloon creations.
We are already planning our next Rainbow Families event – stay tuned and follow us on social media for more exciting events to come!
