Wendybird 5th Anniversary Fundraising Gala | The Henderson Gallery | Friday, 13. September 2019

You are invited to join Wendybird at our fundraising gala as we celebrate 5 years of building courage and resilience in the LGBTIQ+ communities.
In early 2014 Wendybird was formed by a group of passionate LGBTIQ+ people who wanted to create a place where people of diverse bodies, genders, relationships and sexualities, their friends, families and children could form positive and meaningful connections with each other. We did just that and we held our first event at the New Farm Neighbourhood Centre on the 13th of September 2014.
5 years later of running safer, supportive and inclusive community events we are still going, creating, building and redefining community for all LGBTIQ people in Brisbane
Known for our engaging day time events that facilitate authentic and meaningful connections, Wendybird will bring all the best bits of what we do into an evening event, adding in a bit of glitz and glamour along the way.
​ - Enjoy live music and performances from talented local ***** artists
​ - Soft drinks and canapés included (alcohol available for purchase)
 - Make a bid on some awesome items in our live and silent auctions
 - Buy raffle tickets for the chance to win some fabulous raffle prizes
