Hello SpringOUTers,
What a week last week was...apologies for the lateness of this posting, with everything going on it has been difficult to find time to sit down and write a post.
 
This week started with the amazing Bianca Del Rio coming to Canberra to perform her one woman show 'Blame it on Bianca Del Rio', even though it was not officially part of the festival it was really nice timing for her arrival here.
 
This week sees many events occurring...so many events that our Events Manager has taken the week of work to cope!
 
Wednesday will see the first Long Table lunch with Benjamin Law at Muse, this event is sold out.
 
The newly formed ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTIQ+ network is holding their first networking event which will include a panel to discuss their experiences of being out within their community. This is a great opportunity to learn about what experiences they have had during their journey known as life to where they are today. This is being held at 6pm at Polit Bar in Manuka. Tickets are almost sold out so be quick.
