Australia is among the countries where May 17 is celebrated most vividly, often under the acronym IDAHOBIT. We only list the events registered on our site but there are many more around the country. More information is available via various Facebook pages of Australian LGBTQI organisations and media
To mark this year’s IDAHOBIT, Suicide Prevention Coordinators at Neami National (Perth) and Connection and Wellbeing Australia are inviting a number of Perth’s LGBTIQ+ groups and services for an opportunity to connect and discuss the work that they do with the community and come together in solidarity.
A panel of representatives from groups including indigenous LGBTIQ+ radio program Rainbow KINection, PFLAG Perth, First Peoples Rainbow Mob WA, Youth Pride Network, GRAI, Bisexual+ Community Perth, TransFolk of WA, Proud Entertainment Group and OUTinPerth will also speak on the theme of visibility and discuss how we can develop allyship and inclusive practice.
Join the panel and local drag fave Feminem on Friday 17th May at 221 Onslow Rd, Shenton Park from 10am – 1pm. RSVPs are essential – you can register your interest here.
