    GV Pride members and friends alike are invited to ‘hop’ on down (like a bunny!) to Victoria Park Lake this Easter – ALL WELCOME!

    Meet us at the new BBQ pavilion on Wyndham Street (near the servo) – BYO steak or anything fancy, but in the spirit of peace & joy we’ll provide sausages, bread, sauce, soft-drinks and salads!

    We may just have some Easter eggs to share with you all too … OR … you might just have to hunt for them! 😉

    See you there!

    Please arrive by 12.00pm – otherwise the BBQs might get hijacked by mad March hares (i.e. random strangers!)

    You are invited to a very special screening of Freedom to Marry in Shepparton hosted by Australian Marriage Equality.

    The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Evan Wolfson, who was a key figure in securing marriage equality in the US and is featured in the film.

    Want to know a little more? The documentary follows the tense lead-up to the Supreme Court’s final decision and the main players involved: two lawyers (Evan Wolfson, the architect of the movement, and Mary Bonauto, a leading civil rights attorney) and two plaintiffs (April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse). It goes behind the scenes at the culmination of a decades-long fight and tracks the grassroots campaign for support.

    Click here for a preview.

    Where? Village Cinema, 9-13 Stewart Street, Shepparton.
    When? 8.30pm SHARP screening start time, Wed 15th March.
    Tickets? Available online only ($20) via https://tickets.demand.film/event/1583

    We can’t wait to see you there for this special event!
