Dougal has sent this note in to us which will be of interest to some of you:
The Capital Queers are excited to announce that this year in aid of raising funds for our Mardi-Gras Parade float entry for 2012 we will be holding an entire festival of events! The first fabulous event titled ‘Fandangle’ will be an evening of cocktails, tapas, live music and burlesque and will include the launch and announcement of the theme for our float in the parade, by The Hon Andrew Barr! Watch your local cafe windows for our promotional posters and detail of the event.
Fandangle will be followed up by three more events including the “Q&A Queer and Awesome Trivia Spectacular”, the “Drag out ya Sausage Family Fun and Picnic Day” and the “Keep on Marching” – uniform themed dance celebration. All will be held spaced out in the lead up to Mardi-Gras.
Also look out for our stand at Spring Out Fair Day where you’ll be able to find out more about all our upcoming events and also be able to signup to participate in the 2012 Mardi-Gras parade as part of our fabulous float!
