RAINBOW FAMILIES had a massive Mardi Gras season collaborating with a number of partners to offer our community a range of fabulous events. This gave us a wonderful opportunity to allow our families to shine.
We kicked off our Mardi Gras season with a stall at Fair Day where we were able to provide a community hub for rainbow families to meet and mingle.
We teamed up with Mardi Gras and Queer Screen to offer a RAINBOW FAMILIES screening of Finding Nemo which proved a hit with big and little kids alike. We moved into Darling Harbour during the Mardi Gras month of love to deliver a Rainbow Family Fun Day and partnered with Spectrum Now Festival at the Domain to offer our community an alternative to celebrate all the fun of Mardi Gras even if they weren’t involved in the parade.
RAINBOW FAMILIES even fielded a team of enthusiastic runners to show their support for the NSW Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby at the Mardi Gras Rainbow Run fundraiser and finally, 220 of our wonderful members took to the streets to march at this years’ Mardi Gras Parade!
