LHAG Trivia Night – 18 June

17 Jun
Think you know your trivia? Want to win some fabulous prizes? Go to the LHAG Trivia Night during the Brisbane Pride Festival and support the QAHC Lesbian Health Action Group.

Lesbian health promotion receives no government funding in Queensland yet there are a number of issues that particularly affect this community. QAHC’s Lesbian Health Action Group relies on volunteers, grants, sponsorship, donations and other fundraising efforts like the trivia night to perform their important work to improve the health and wellbeing of Queensland’s lesbian community.

Everyone is welcome, so go along to test your knowledge and enjoy a fun night while supporting a good cause. Who knows, while you’re racking your brain for answers you may even make some new friends.

This is a drug and alcohol free event but softdrinks will be available for sale and tea, herbal tea and coffee will be provided free. You’re welcome to bring your own food or nibbles.

Free parking is available at the rear of the building and there is a ramp and elevator for wheelchair access, but please note there are no suitable wheelchair friendly toilets available (sorry).

The cost is $15 for waged adults, $12 for Brisbane Pride members, $10 adult concession, and $5 for children aged 5+.

For more information call Una on 0448 933 285.

Lesbian Mums On QLD Birth Certificates

17 Jun

As of 1 June this year, both lesbian parents of children conceived as a couple will be recognised on the child’s birth certificate. This brings Qld in line with rights afforded to couples in other states, such as Vic and NSW.

Not only does this landmark change mean both parents now have equal rights from birth, it also means fewer legal costs for new families.
