EQUALITY MONTH RECAP 

 

 

A WHOLE MONTH OF GUEST SPEAKERS, PARTIES, CINEMA, BINGO AND LOVE

 

The 15th November marked two years since Australia voted YES to Marriage Equality.

Last year, the Green Park Hotel’s ‘Yesiversary’ party saw the much-loved Darlinghurst stalwart transformed into a buzzing hive of celebration and colour!

 

For November 2019, the Greenie teamed up with ACON, to create something bigger, more inclusive and longer lasting, to resonate with the entire community and city – declaring November Equality Month.

 

The first in what will be an annual event, saw the pub hosting no less than THIRTY love-packed days of activity.

 

Gay speed dating Mondays (better known as Bachelor in the Park!), and drag bingo Thursdays, became weekly events for the month, and joined by a new line up of mid-week activities, including trivia hosted by the never-trashy Liquor Sisters, a brand new cinema offering – Camp Cinema – launched in the backroom on Tuesdays, hosted by Sydney filmic icons, Jay Katz and Miss Death.

Finally, we ran a series of 4 panel-style talks, in association with ACON.

 

The series featured guest speakers discussing a range of topics, from the History of Equality in Sydney, to the Marriage Equality campaign itself. From World Aids Day, to Issues facing LGBTQIA+ Youth.
