2016-11-06

Communities and Social Inclusion Minister Zoe Bettison is encouraging South Australians to support the LGBTIQ community and attend today’s Feast Festival Picnic in the Park.

The event runs from 11am through to 8pm at Pinky Flat on War Memorial Drive.

The picnic is expected to attract more than 2500 people and will include 70 stalls from community groups, food vendors, government agencies and other organisations.

The Department for Communities and Social Inclusion stall will provide information about the department’s services for LGBTIQ people and is an opportunity for government to connect with LGBTIQ people to talk about issues important to them.

The State Government is committed to including and supporting LGBTIQ people, including legislative reform to make legislation more inclusive.

I encourage everyone to attend the Feast Festival Picnic in the Park today, to show support for our LGBTIQ community.

It is an opportunity to celebrate and remember the importance of equality and valuing difference.

I especially encourage LGBTIQ people to visit the DCSI stall and talk to staff about issues important to them. Your feedback will help government to better understand your needs.
