30 Years Queer planning group

Make your mark and celebrate in style by joining our planning group. We’ll be meeting to discuss celebrations and fundraising efforts as part of the LGBT+ Centre’s 30th birthday! Regular planning meetings will take place at The LGBT+ Centre. We’d love people with links to the centre or an interest in community events to join us.
