PFLAG had a stall at Fair Day  last  Sunday 17th.   My thanks to those early risers who helped prepare our stall and helped make it look great for the day and also to those who came from far and wide ‘the Blue Mtns. and Central Coast’ and to those Sydney siders who gave up a good part of their day to support us and provide the Love and Support that many who stopped at all stand needed.

A Big Thanks to Seiko for their generous donation of a prestigious watch won by Tracey and a big thanks to Vanessa Rodreguez for her donation of not only a beautiful piece of Artwork, won by Andrea, but also two vouchers 1 x $100 won by Mel G  and 1 x $50.00 by Josephine.

We are now preparing for the Mardi Gras Parade and if you are quick we have a few spaces available.

Please email   With the Subject being “Mardi Gras Parade”
For those who are not financial PFLAG members, a fee of $25 will apply.


On behalf of the PFLAG committee may we wish you

A very Happy Mardi Gras
