Family Pride - 28 April

Rainbow Families and Strong Safe Fabulous are excited to join partners across the globe in celebration of International Family Equality Day – a world-wide celebration of the LGBTQ+ parenting and family community. 

Rainbow families, friends and allies in Sydney will be celebrating on Sunday April 28th from 11am at Petersham Town Hall. Join us for a fabulous, fun-filled day with free activities for kids including Reverse Garbage, face-painting, arts and crafts. There will also be live entertainment all day.


Family Pride has something for everyone. There are heaps of different art and craft activities as well as performances throughout the day.

Book Stall

Bring your old books along to add to the book swap. We will have a selection of LBGTQ+ inclusive kids books thanks to Glee Books, as well as books donated by the community. All community donated books will be $3 so make sure the kids pack their pocket money!


Cake Stall

We will be providing lunch for everyone, but we need your help to stock up the cake stall. We'd love you to bring along a cake, slice, or batch of biscuits to share with the community.


This is an initiative of Strong Safe Fabulous - a project to support the prevention of domestic & family violence, and child abuse in LGBTIQA+ families. We believe that all families have a right to live a life free from violence and that the whole community can take action to change the attitudes and social norms that lead to violence. 

Please RSVP so that we can expect you.
