Have dinner online tonight!

Hi everyone,

Below are the instructions for tonight’s LGBTI+ online social dinner, if you’d like to join. Everyone is welcome. For those who are thinking “I would really like to see people but I have NO idea how to even get started with Zoom”, please give me a call (0436021896) or send an email. I will walk you through the process step-by-step. I love helping out with getting this set up for people, so don’t hesitate to ask me to help out. No question is too small.

We are using ‘Zoom’ for our catch-up this evening at 6:30 pm. If you’ve used Zoom before, just click/press this link to join:
