History Can Be Queer



30 May 2024

Are you an LGBTIQA+ young person or ally aged 16-25? Join us this Pride Month to explore queer history.

Ever wondered what it’s like to be LGBTIQA+? What was it like 40 years ago, or 100 years ago? Are you curious to know why a pub called the Stonewall Inn is important? Do you know when the rainbow flag was first flown? Ever heard of a pink triangle?  

Now’s your opportunity to learn in a safe space with others. Together we will create a timeline of key moments in the lives of LGBTIQA+ people. Join co-facilitators Emma Hofmeyer (she/her - they/them) and Allison Trethowan (she/her) for this free session. 

Anyone who identifies as LGBTIQA+ or an ally and is aged 16-25 is welcome to attend. 

Relationships Australia Victoria is proud to support this event, which is delivered in partnership with Uniting, Goulburn Valley Pride and the OUTintheOPEN Festival. 

When: Wednesday 5 June 2024 from 5-7:30pm. 

Where: Central Shepparton. The exact location will be sent to you via email or text message after you register. 

Cost: Free of charge. Refreshments will be provided.
