We are having something different at our next Sydney Freedom 2 b[e] monthly get together.


This is a special night for GLBT people and their straight friends and family.

Often the people who can do more for our cause than us are our straight friends and family members. Usually people perceive that we believe in equality and change because we have an agenda. Well we do of course. We are GLBT after all and discrimination, inequalities and ignorance affect us directly.

But when our straight friends and families support us it often carries greater weight.

Everyone bring a straight friend or family member along next Friday 4 September as we discuss their role in our lives and how they can support us.

• What has been their journey to accept their gay or lesbian friends and family members?

• Do they find they have to come out?

• What ways do they like to support us?

• What times do they find it difficult?

• How can we help them?

• What preconceived ideas and misconceptions did they have about GLBT people?

• Understanding the process of acceptance.

So invite a straight friend or family member into our space on this particular night. Get them to meet other GLBT people.

If you don’t know any straight people adopt one for the night and bring them along. They are lovely people once you get to know them. Hehe!

When: Friday 4 September 2009

Time: 7.15 for 7.30 start (finish 9.00pm)

Where: Lower ground floor – Rooms 9-10 ACON Building,

9 Commonwealth Street, Surry Hills Sydney

After our formal meeting you are welcome to join us for a reasonably priced dinner or a snack at Betty’s Soup Kitchen, Oxford St and possibly a drink as well after that. STAY AS LITTLE OR AS LONG AS YOU LIKE. Always interesting conversation with quality people.

If you want further details then email [email protected] or phone 0416 015 231
