Rainbow Talks

Saturday 14 November, 9am to 5pm | UWA Club, Nedlands | Book your free tickets

PrideFEST is not all glitter and rainbows. LGBTQI+ Western Australians continue to face discrimination every day and equality is an ongoing process. But knowledge is power, and that starts by listening and learning – both for the community and for allies. Rainbow Talks is a day of talks by the community on a range of topics including Trans 101 as well as The Role and Relevance of Allies in the 2020’s and LGBTQI+: Deciphering the Alphabet Soup.
