LGBT community hosts fun day

THE lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community and friends yesterday enjoyed a family fun day at the popular picnic spot My Suva Picnic Park to commemorate International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia.

"This is a belated celebration. We were supposed to have the fun day on May 17, on the actual International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia but couldn't because of bad weather," Kris Prasad, fun day organiser said.

"This day really is to bring everyone together. Our previous events to mark May 17 were always on the serious side. We wanted to have a family fun day so we can enjoy fun activities with our friends and family, and especially the children."

The fun day was marked with face paintings, art and craft, live performances of poems and songs and a treasure hunt, similar to the television program Amazing Race where participants solved clues on LGBT issues.

Mr Prasad said the family fun day was important as they were also imparting their message of peace, love and friendship to those people who attended.
