Claudia Rose and Aidan from Wear it Purple came to our home this evening  to make a film about PFLAG for this years’ Wear  it Purple celebrations. We had a great evening talking and filming with these lovely young people. We do hope the film is a success for Wear it Purple on all the social media.

Photo of our wonderful PFLAG members Mollie and Pamela in the shining lights of the Mardi Gras parade. This year PFLAG had quite a long wait in the marshalling area but it was all worth that wait once we entered the parade. The response from the crowd was overwhelmingly positive. Many many people calling out Thankyou and incredible applause for PFLAG. There was much comradeship amongst PFLAG entrants. Much thanks to Judy for her organisational skills , to Geoff for his Ute and Geoff for his marshalling abilities. Thankyou to Narelle for braving her 18th Mardi Gras Parade and a Thankyou to our Natalie.

Thanks to all our PFLAG participants, you made this 40th anniversary an incredibly happy experience.
