A high tea celebration for Victorian Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Gender Diverse, and Intersex elders
The New Moves High Tea was afternoon gathering for Victorian Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Gender Diverse and Intersex elders supported by the State Government.
Every year the Victorian Senior’s Festival recognises the contributions that seniors make to our community. In partnership with Alice’s Garage, this event celebrated the contributions of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex elders.
All The Queens Men and Alice’s Garage invited LGBTI+ elders, Commissioners and advocacy organisations together to build new connections. The event included a video with messages of support from the Commissioners to older LGBTI+ Victorians.
As Ro Allen (State Commissioner for Gender and Sexuality) states:
“We hope these connections will help to make sure LGBTI+ elders feel supported and are aware of the support services available to them. We know that some LGBTI+ elders continue to fear discrimination and we want you to know that in Victoria Equality is not negotiable”.
