The LGBTI Over 50’s Project

The LGBTI Over 50’s Project supports people in the LGBTI community who are over the age of 50.  The aim is to provide an opportunity for people to connect on a social level.  We have a number of regular social activities as well as one-off gatherings, information sessions and events.

Monthly LGBTI Community Dinner

The dinners are held on the 1st Thursday of each month and open to all Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender & Intersex people along with their friends or partners.  The first dinner was held in July 2015 at The Gilbert Hotel, with 13 people attending.  In August 2015 over 30 people attended the dinner at The Arab Steed Hotel, where it was agreed that this venue should be the preferred place to hold all future dinners, based on the convenient location, good parking, excellent food choices, and many had previous connections to the pub in the past.  Since beginning, the dinners are attended by an average of 25-30 people each month with at least one third being women.

The dinner is a great opportunity to connect or re-connect with the LGBTI community, in a safe, friendly and welcoming environment.  New people and interstate and overseas visitors are always welcome.

Monthly Movie Afternoon

The Monthly Movie Afternoon are held at Catalyst Foundation in our seminar room on the 4th Friday of each month.  Open to both men and women, come along and enjoy an LGBTI themed movie from the classics to the latest releases in a friendly and safe space.  Stay for a coffee and chat about the movie, or bring a friend or meet new friends at these monthly sessions.

Monthly Drop-ins

The Monthly Drop-ins started off as a mixed drop-in, however after talking with our community it was suggested that we hold separate men’s and women’s drop-ins.  So we took this on board, and now each month we have a monthly Men’s Space and a monthly Women’s Lounge.

The Drop-ins are held at Catalyst Foundation and are an opportunity to connect and catch up with other LGBTI people in a relaxed private social environment, have a coffee, do a planned activity or hear from a guest speaker.  The activities and speakers are suggested by the group participants and organised by the LGBTI Project Officer.

The Women’s Lounge meets at Catalyst Foundation – 149 Currie Street in the Seminar Room on the 3rd Thursday of each month.

The Men’s Space meets at Catalyst Foundation – 149 Currie Street in the Seminar Room on the 2nd Thursday of each month.
